Hi I'm Jessicah Starke

I'm serving a mission in Costa Rica!

About Me

I am a 21 year old girl who is currently loving life. I've been called to serve as a full time missionary in the Costa Rica, San Jose mission and i am absolutely thrilled. I attend Brigham Young University Idaho and am majoring in Health Science. I have aspiring hopes of being a dental hygienist and having a family someday. But until then, i am simply enjoying being young, having fun, and living life to the fullest. Lover of all things disney, chocolate ice cream, California sunshine, and Idaho sunsets. Being with my family makes me happier than anything else.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy. It's as simple as that. It gives me perfect direction and guidance in my life. The teachings of the church answer all of lives questions. It's hard to express the joy the church gives me but I thank God everyday for it.

How I live my faith

I try my best to live my faith everyday. And luckily i have a Savior who makes up for the rest. This summer i was an Especially For Youth counselor. It was the absolute best thing i have ever done. I taught youth ages 14-18 about the gospel and it was an amazing experience i'll never forget. My knowledge and testimony of the gospel was strengthened immensely. Currently my calling is teaching cute 6 year olds. They all know Jesus loves them and make me smile every Sunday. I love going out with the sister missionaries in my ward and can't wait to be a missionary myself.
