Hi I'm Jessica

I live in southern california, im a student, daughter, friend. Im a mormon

About Me

I am the youngest of 7 children. I have been a member of the mormon church for 2 1/2 years. I am a convert, with extreme optimism for my future life, now that I have Heavenly Father to guide me through the Holy Ghost. I look forward to speaking daily with Him, and the spiritual hugs He freely gives to me when I am in need, or confirming I am on the right path. With one simple heartfelt prayer, asking Heavenly Father is this church your true church, I knew it was true because at that very moment, the presence of the Holy Ghost was warmly felt, such peace and calmness. I am so thankful I prayed that day.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was investigating the church, there were a few thing that really helped me to find my sense of belonging in the church. I had always lived by the same standards of the church, so it was really nice to find people that were like me. I am also a logical thinker, so much of our teaching just "made sense". I enjoyed reading the Book of Mormon and found it quite easier to read than other scripture... I could read it for hours. As I read and studied the scripture I came to have a testimony of its truthfulness. I always knew of the atonement, but now I believe in the atonement. I know that Jesus died for our sins and that we can repent and live again with our Heavenly Father someday. I asked Heavenly Father if this church is true, if Joseph Smith is a true Prophet of God, is this were I belong, in the name of Jesus Christ, and I was immediately consumed by this warm, calming feeling, form the presence of the Holly Ghost, and I knew my answer to all was YES. How could I ignore a undeniable answer to my prayer.

How I live my faith

I pray every day, I ask when I am unsure of anything, and I believe that ALL of my prayers are heard. I freely share my testimony. I try to keep the commandments as best I can, by allowing the Holly Ghost to guide and lead me.
