Hi I'm Jill

I am an Oregonian, I love to laugh and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy playing tennis, being with friends and learning about people in history. I am used to being the only LDS or Mormon in my peer group and have no problem answering any questions about my religion. I can be very competitive and I love a good laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the LDS or Mormon faith. But in high school I really had to decide for myself if I really did believe in what I have always been taught. My friends were not really religious, some to the point of believing there is no God and they would make fun of me on occasion and tell me it was childish to believe in God or that the gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth. I would like you to know that I have thought long and hard about my religion, I have prayed a lot, and I know that there is a God and that this religion truly testifies of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. This religion was put on this earth for us from our Heavenly Father. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. I experienced a time in my life where I felt so alone. When I felt so helpless and unloved, I prayed to my Heavenly Father and I asked Him if He was really there, if He knew who I was and if He cared about me at all. after I prayed I felt such peace and warmness. It was a true testimony to me that God lives, that He is aware of me personally and that He loves me more than I can ever comprehend. I know that I may feel lonely at times but I will never be alone. Our Heavenly Father created us. He will never abandon us, He has a plan for all of us. He knows our names, He knows what we are going through, and He wants to help us. He knows our circumstances and He loves all of us with a perfect love. If you take the time to sincerely ask, I know that you will receive an answer.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving an eighteen month church mission Spanish speaking in Provo, Utah.
