Hi I'm Jessica Hansen

I love life and the joy that is is everyday. I want to teach high school math. I am a Mormon, and I love it!

About Me

I am a college student, and I am studying to be a math teacher. I love school even though its hard sometimes. I love music! I enjoy singing and playing the piano. I love to spend time with my family and friends. I love books and reading. I love art especially the talent and creativity of others. I love the outdoors and the beauty all over the earth. I love adventures. I am preparing to serve a full time mission in Calgary Canada, and I am so excited!

Why I am a Mormon

For a long time I relied on the testimony of my parents. I was pretty sure that I had a testimony, but I wasn't sure. When I moved away from home I had to decide if I really had a testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I began to truly ask Heavenly Father for a witness and a testimony. I prayed harder than I have ever prayed before. I was reading my scriptures everyday looking for an answer. My answer came, it was like a warm blanket being wrapped around me as the spirit whispered, "Jessica, it is all true, and you have always known it." I couldn't stop crying, I was so overwhelmed, but yet so comforted. I knew what I wanted to do immediately, and that was to share my happiness with others. I know with everything that I am that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true gospel. I know that there is a prophet on the earth today that speaks and gives counsel to us. I know that Jesus Christ came down to this earth and atoned for everyone. Not just for our sins, but for our pains, afflictions, and sorrows. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he did translate the Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon is true! I have read it, and I know it to be the word of God. I know that if you pray to God he will answer your prayers. I know God loves me. I am his daughter. I know that we are all his children and that he loves each and everyone of us.

How I live my faith

I attend a Young Single Adult Ward where I go to college. I serve as a family home evening group leader. So every monday night a bunch of different apartments get together to play a game and have a spiritual message. I love it! I have made so many friends by fulfilling my calling. I have served as a teacher. It was really hard at first, but I soon learned that I gained more from my lessons than probably anyone else.
