Hi I'm Jenika

I am a Hairstylist. I love the outdoors and I am a missionary in the Illinois, Nauvoo Mission. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have learned in this life, that there is a lot of things that I am passionate about and that I love. I am a Hairstylist and I LOVE it with all my heart! I love helping people feel better about themselves and feel beautiful. If i can help people in my own small way while they are in my chair, then i will do it. I LOVE the outdoors. I love hunting and fly fishing. There is something about being outdoors that helps you to know that everything is going to be okay.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints means the world to me. It is something that i could never hide. It makes me so happy! My love for the Gospel is something that i have always had. It was through the example of one of my friends in my ward that started me wanting to know if this was Christs true church back on the Earth. And it is! When i first prayed to know if the Church was true and if the Book of Mormon was the word of God, the words came to my mind "You know its true. You KNOW it is true." And that is it. Ever since then it started this fire, and i cant seem to get enough. It means everything to me. I love my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ. I want nothing more than to return home to Them and i will die trying.

How I live my faith

I LOVE my faith! It is something that i want to share because i know how it has changed my life and i have seen how it can change others. Peace in this life is possible. Happiness in this life IS POSSIBLE! So that is why i am now on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Nauvoo, Illinois! Nauvoo means the world to me and has only grown since I have been here. Come to Nauvoo, it will change your lives, as it has mine!
