Hi I'm Jess

I am a daughter, sister, and aunt. I am adopted and a lover of dance and music.

About Me

I love dance so much, and I have the amazing opportunity to study that while I am in college. I believe that dance can be more than just an athletic outlet, it can be more than just an artistic expression. I believe that through dance we can overcome fears, we can learn more about life, we can come to know ourselves better, and we can come to know God better. He gave us our bodies and we can do amazing things with them that can help and uplift others and ourselves. I was adopted into a family as a baby and have been blessed with an amazing family that I love so much! They have taught me about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all growing up, and I too have grown to love it and do my best to live it. I am grateful for the family that I have and the love that they constantly give me. I had the opportunity to serve a mission for the church in the Philippines, an amazing experience where I learned so much more about Jesus Christ and the gospel. I love Jesus Christ. He is my Savior. I am always trying to learn more about Him and love Him better.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I have studied it and believe it to be yet another witness of Jesus Christ, His mission, and His love for us. Through this book I have come to understand better the love of God and who He is. And only in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is this book of scripture found and used alongside the Bible as scripture. Because of this, and many other factors and experiences, I know that this church is true.

How I live my faith

I pray often, attend church regularly, study scriptures, and do my best to live what I am learning. I love being involved in interfaith activities and uniting with others of different faiths. But mostly I love sharing what I learn and know of Jesus Christ. I love learning more about Jesus Christ, who He was, what He did, and the love He has for me and all of us. The more I learn about Him and my Heavenly Father the better I want to become.
