Hi I'm Bobbi Jo

I'm a small town gal from Star Valley, Wyoming! I love to travel, laugh, and meet people. I love life and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hello there! Like I said, I am from a very small town, population 100. I am mildly obsessed with super heroes. Optimus Prime, Batman, and Captain America are my favorites. I love to ride motorbikes, snowmobiles, 4wheelers...anything with an engine. I grew up on a small family farm and I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment after a hard days work. My favorite channel on TV is the History Channel. I am studying to be a Social Studies teacher where I hope my students will learn to love our forefathers as much as I do. And I'm a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to be a member of this church my whole life. I grew up learning about the stories of amazing people like Nephi, Ammon, and Moroni. However, I never knew what it was like to really stand up for what I believed in until I went to college. And while there I was able to look back at those heroes from the Book of Mormon and draw strength from their testimonies and experiences. I'm a Mormon because through the Book of Mormon I am able to know my Savior more completely. I'm a Mormon because He has changed my life and desires. I will forever be thankful for Joseph Smith and how he had the courage to pray to our Father in Heaven and ask which church to join. And to quote my Mission President, "Through Joseph I know Jesus."

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a mission for the Church in Chicago Illinois. My favorite thing about serving the Lord in this capacity is the love that I feel for the people that I meet. The Lord is giving me a little glimpse of how He feels for them. I feel very privileged to know these choice children of our Heavenly Father. I also have the amazing opportunity to share with them this pure gospel and I get a front-row seat to watch as our Savior's love and teachings change their lives.
