Hi I'm Jessica Hakes

I am a military wife, Full time at home mom of 4 kids and teach pre-school in my home, and im a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married 9 years, I have 4 beautiful children, 2 of them are boy girl twins, I am also a certified preschool teacher going back to school to get a degree in early childhood education, and a full time stay at home mom. I am also a MILITARY WIFE. Before the military career the stresses of having a family and the things of daily life were getting to us.The Husband working 3 jobs and going to school just wasn't working out. Joining the military was the best Idea and answer to our prayers for our family. Moving place to place is probably one of my dreams..... I love to travel and thankfully so does my family! Its been a challenge but its always worked out.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received confirmation from the Lord that the things being taught by the church are true. I continue to be a Mormon because it brings me joy, happiness and peace. Through the Gift of the Holy Ghost I get to feel the Lords love for me. Blessings from the Lord in my life motivates me to want to be better, to share what I know and to help those who need my help. Being a full time stay at home mom I need all the patience and strength I can get from the Lord. Did I mention I am a Military Wife? That in of it self is a challenge and the Lord's hand in my life is very obvious through the struggles of a military family, especially when the spouse/daddy is on the other side of the world. I receive peace through the Lord when our soldier is fighting for our freedoms far away.

How I live my faith

Service. Missionary Work. One of the many things we as a family focus on is to help others find happiness as we have, especially those in the military who seek for it. We Strive to look for ways to help others, secretly. And we praise those who also help others. In my church - where we are currently living ,we have a program for the ladies in our church were we assign specific ladies to check up on each other, serve each other, uplift each other, comfort each other and visit each other with a spiritual message. I am a coordinator of this program we have in our church here, and its brought me to get to know all the ladies and love them, And i am lucky to get to see all the miracles and life changes that happen in peoples lives. Its brought me to love the lord more and more, and be a disciple of Christ.

What is faith?

Jessica Hakes
Faith in my life is knowing the Lord has a hand in ALL things in my life, and knowing that as my military spouse is far away we will once again be together as a family. Show more Show less
