Hi I'm Jo

I'm a small-town girl from Upstate New York who likes to dream big. I'm a book-lover and musician. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am student at Brigham Young University, studying English. My plan is to become an English teacher. Books. Books. Books! I love them! Not only are my days filled with literature, but with music. Like most, I am a music lover! I love to sing and play the piano. I enjoy listening to choral music, jazz, any easy-listening music. I also enjoy being outside, even in the rain or snow. I love to laugh! Life is about enjoying the journey! So laugh a little! Among music, literature, and nature, I love my friends, family, and my Savior! And I cannot wait to serve Him as a full-time missionary!

Why I am a Mormon

I have not always been a Mormon. I grew up in a Christian family. I believed in God and His Son, Jesus Christ. But that was it. I needed more, and so did my parents. We decided to investigate other churches, and during that time, missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints knocked on our door! My parents invited them in and we started to learn about the Book of Mormon and our Heavenly Father's plan for us. I have come to love that precious book with my whole heart. It has changed me forever. I have read the Book of Mormon, and I have asked God if it is true. I have received an answer through the peace it brings to me and through the joy and happiness it has brought into my life. The Book of Mormon is true! It testifies of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His love for us. Through the Book of Mormon, I have come to know that our Savior loves us and wants us to open our arms to Him. And I am excited to shared this message with those I meet as a missionary in the Colorado Denver North Mission!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by giving myself to this gospel, to my Savior, and to my Heavenly Father. Like most, I attend church, take notes, and interact with those around me. But I like to live my faith by loving as the Savior would love. I will be serving as a full-time missionary in the Colorado Denver North Mission. Through serving I will be able to grow closer to Jesus Christ.
