About Me

Hi, my name is Jess Nelson. I am from Idaho. I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ, my entire life. I love the gospel with my whole heart. I am currently serving a mission in Florida, Tampa. The greatest mission in the world! Serving the Lord is truly a blessing! I love getting to help others find the joy that the gospel provides for me. I love learning. I love knowing that I can learn something new everyday. I love to make people laugh and I love being happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that my Redeemer lives. I know with my whole heart that this church is the only true church on the face of this earth. I have a testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ. I know he died for us, so that we could one day return to him. I am a Mormon, because I know that only through this gospel my family can live together forever and that I can marry my chosen companion in the temple and be sealed together with him for all eternity. I am a Mormon, because I know that I will see my loved ones that have passed away again. I am a Mormon, because I know that only through ,my Saviors atonement can I become a perfected being, just as my Heavenly Father is. I am a Mormon, because this church brings me so much joy and happiness. I am a Mormon, because through faithful prayer and diligent study of the scriptures, it has been testified to me that this is the only True church on this earth. I am a Mormon, because I know that I am a daughter of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by obeying the commandments set by my Heavenly Father. I pray to Him daily to receive inspiration and guidance. I listen to and follow the inspired teachings provided by the prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I attend church each Sunday and strive to keep the covenants I have made with my Father in Heaven. I try to live Christ's example by serving and loving others.
