Hi I'm Jessica Johansen

I have grown up in Idaho my entire life and attend BYU-I. I come from a family of six children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey my name is Jessica! I am just living the life going to school at BYU-Idaho. I am currently working at Disney World and I love it!! I love to dance and meet new people.I seriously spend most of my day laughing and smiling. I come from a family of six children. I have an older brother adopted from Romania and he was blessed with having five little sisters, all with different hair colors. I love serving others, and have found that it brings me the most joy in my life. I was blessed to have grown up with some of the best people on this planet, and I feel so privileged to call them my friends. More than anything I love my family, and I will never be able to put into words how much love I have for them!

Why I am a Mormon

The church has brought about a happiness and joy in me that is indescribable. It provides such a light and hope for this life, and lives to come. I have seen how the rest of the world lives, and I feel so blessed to know what I do about this life. I know that I am a child of God and that he loves me! I love the principles it teaches; especially when it comes to family. I also feel blessed to have the love that I do when it comes to serving others. Serving others brings a happiness in my life that I can't even begin to get somewhere else! Everything that this gospel teaches, I can find myself agreeing with. If at first I don't see the meaning behind principles, I pray to have understanding and those things are then made known to me. The church has brought comfort to me in times that I need it the most and I love the way it teaches about our Savior, Jesus Christ. He knows us better than we know ourselves, and his path leads us to true happiness.Without the church, I have no idea where I might be or end up. I want to constantly remain active in this church in order to always live worry to acquire its many blessings it brings.

How I live my faith

I love participating in the gospel! It brings such a feeling of satisfaction and love that you can never feel anywhere else. While it is hard for me to live every single principle of the gospel, I try every day to work on something new. That is part of the excitement of the gospel I guess!
