Hi I'm Jessica Wahlen

I'm nineteen years old, I've been called to serve in the Texas Houston Mission, I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love sports and my favorites are basketball, football, and volleyball. I enjoy running, spending time with my family and friends, and studying/learning more about the gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is so important to me and I absolutely LOVE the gospel with all of my heart! Knowing that Heavenly Father loves me and all of His children here on earth, more than we can comprehend, is such a comfort in my life. One of the ways He shows His love was by Him giving His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, who suffered and died for all of our sins and pains that we go through in life. This incredible, unimaginable, loving sacrifice reminds me that I will NEVER be alone, and that if I follow Christ's example and teachings, I can someday return to live with Him and Heavenly Father! Life isn't easy but it's definitely worth it! The gospel is a HUGE blessing in my life, I've realized that I don't EVER want it out of my life and I can't live without it; life would be SO much harder! I'm extremely grateful for every aspect of the gospel, I cherish the knowledge that I've received and continue to by living it!

How I live my faith

Everyday I try to think what would Jesus do, so I can focus on doing what is right and remember Him. To show my love and that I want to follow Him, I attend church on Sundays and try and fulfill my calling to the best of my abilities. My calling in the church allows me to reach out to those around my age and by doing so, I make new friends, and gain strength from others example.
