Hi I'm Jessica

I love smiling and learning. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm preparing to go on a mission, and I can't wait to go. I am also starting college soon. I'll be studying linguistics. In my free time I love to study languages and learn about other cultures. I like to exercise, my favorite thing is running, but I like to bike and play Frisbee! I love my family and I like it when we spend time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was raised in the Church. I have made mistakes, but I have felt the healing power of the Atonement. Jesus Christ paid for our sins, and that means that everyone can be forgiven. I believe in Christ and what He has done for us. I know that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon. There is no way an uneducated man could write something so powerful, and meaningful without the power of God, and through the guidance of the Spirit. I know Joseph was a prophet, and that we have a living prophet today, even Thomas S. Monson. I feel the blessings of choosing the right, and I know that all of the guidance we have today is for our benefit in the eternities, and that if we do what is right, we can return to live with our Heavenly Father someday. I also love my family very much, and I know that through the Plan of Happiness, we can also live with our families again. Families are forever. I know these things to be true, and I say them in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I just got called to be a primary teacher! My first calling and I get to hang out with and teach an exciting group of 6 year olds! I babysit for the families in my ward, and so I already know a lot about them. I love babysitting and helping other families. I love serving others, and that is why I volunteer at my local library at least once a week. It's great because I get to see so many different people all joined by the love of reading. I can't wait to be a missionary so that I can serve others in the name of Christ and share the glad message of the gospel with everyone around me.
