Hi I'm Jocelyn

I am a twin. I am a missionary. I love soccer. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am the oldest of eight children: 4 brothers and 3 sisters. My youngest two bothers are adopted from Ethiopia. I have a twin sister, who is my best friend. I am studying Elementary Education in college and have developed a love for children and the gift we have to learn and gain knowledge. I love to be active and participate in sports. A hidden talent that I wish to more fully develop is photography.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because it brings me peace. There is a lot going on in the world that leads to heartache and despair, choices that bring us down to a low that we never thought we could be. I have found that the gospel of Jesus Christ has helped me to live a pure and happy life. A life filled with family. A life filled with friends. A life filled with love. A life filled with blessings. A life centered around Christ. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has helped me to see who I am, why I'm here, and where I am going. I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, who knows me and loves me. I am here on this earth to learn and to grow, to make decisions, to fill my mind with knowledge, to experience life, and to be happy. Based on my choices here in this life, I will make it back to my Heavenly Father and live in his presence once again. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings me peace. It gives me purpose.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily as I strive to follow Christ. Jesus said, "Come follow me." To me, being a disciple of Jesus Christ means that each day I will strive in my actions, my thoughts, my words, and the way I live my life, to follow the Savior. It is very difficult to be perfect, and there's a good chance that we won't be, but I can aim high and follow Christ's example as I choose to do good things and live my faith each day. I am serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Pennsylvania Philadelphia mission. During this time, I have come to know my Savior personally. I desire to share the gospel with others and help them come to know the answers that I have been blessed to have.
