Hi I'm Jenessa Erickson! :)

I am from Salt Lake City Utah. I love to dance, laugh, and preach the gospel here in Germany. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Germany Frankfurt mission. I am the third of five kids in my family, yep the lucky middle child. :) I love my family though. They mean everything to me. I love spending time laughing and having a good time with my family! Before my mission I studied at Utah Valley University for a year doing Ballet. I danced ballet for 13 years leading up to then and hope to be able to return to the Ballet studio after my mission here in Germany is over. I have now been here in Germany for about a year and love it. I have many ancestors who were from Germany so as i have been here learning the German language and culture i have really felt close to all of my ancestors who paved the way for me to be a part of this wonderful church!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel brings so much happiness into my life. I love knowing that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ loves me unconditionally and will always be there for me. I love the feeling of peace that I feel as I read the scriptures and learn of the gospel principles. I know that the scriptures are true and that they are words written for us today from our Heavenly Father. I am grateful for the knowledge that I can be with my family and those that i love for eternity through Heavenly Father's plan. I know that my Savior gave his life for my sins and everyone's sins. I know that this church truly is the church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service. I have found that I feel the love of our Father in Heaven when I am serving those around me. I love to see the happiness of others when they know that they are loved. I have planned several different service projects for the church at home and here in Germany to get other members involved in service! I love to help others know that they are children of God.That God loves them! That is the biggest and most hopeful message that this church has to offer!
