Hi I'm Jessica

I love singing at the top of my lungs and running up the highest mountains. My family and friends are my whole life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love to run long distance cross country. There's something about breathing in the fresh nature air and feeling my heart beat that I cannot get enough of, especially during night runs. However, what really makes running worth it is the amazing friends I hang out with while running. We all are a big running family, and help each other run hard and live the gospel. The best is when we make up songs and sing to encourage each other. I also love to sing and have a passion for all types of music. I've been singing since I was four, and am currently learning to play the piano. These two talents of mine, running and music, are the best when I get to share them with my family and friends. I couldn't live without them. I am a music loving, running addict that's strives to live the gospel everyday, and that's me in a nutshell.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always been a Mormon, ever since I was born, and even before that. I haven't always liked coming to church and I've gone through a couple of dark periods in my life where I wasn't sure about whether I truly believed. I was going through one of these periods up until the general conference where President Monson lowered age limits for Elder and Sister Missionaries. The minute he said those words, I had an overwhelming feeling of calm and peace. I knew that I'm supposed to go on a mission. Ever since then, I've been really focusing on strengthening my testimony of Christ and this gospel. I've seen a change in my life, almost like there's a new or brighter light of hope and joy. I'm a Mormon because I feel this gospel is the only thing in this life that can bring me the most joy and happiness while I'm on this earth. I'm a Mormon because I have felt the truth of this gospel, and feel that others in this world need this light. I'm a Mormon because this is the true gospel. I invite you to come and find out for yourself.

How I live my faith

I have been called to serve as a Sister Missionary for 18 months of my life. This is the best way, as of right now, that I feel I can show my Heavenly Father that I live in faith. He has called me to serve some of His best sons and daughters, and I couldn't be happier. When I found out that many people have been converted through music in the area I will be serving, I knew that was the place I was supposed to serve. Music has a special way of inviting the Holy Ghost and teaching us sacred doctrine that can be hard to describe in words. I love singing hymns and creating a spiritually rich environment where we can all learn by the Spirit. I can't wait to get out in the world and invite others to receive this amazing light of the gospel through Jesus Christ. I hope to live my faith by sharing my talent of music and serving the Lord's chosen people.
