Hi I'm Jackie Milligan

I wear flip flops year-round. I love country music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 years old and have completed my General Studies at Brigham Young University-Idaho

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of this church because it is so full of answers! I know God hasn't left His children alone because we have a prophet that speaks to us and gives us direction. I love that I can pray to know for myself what is good and what isn't. Through faith and participating in the atonement, I can come closer to my Savior Jesus Christ, and that is why I love this gospel.

How I live my faith

I have attended Brigham Young University for two years and earned my AS in Generals with an emphasis in Home and Family. As I attended this school I came to know of the reality that God really does have his hand in every aspect of our lives. I have participated in leadership callings at BYU-I that have helped prepare me to prepare to serve an 18 month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I try to show my understanding for God and Jesus Christ's love for me by sharing it with others in the things I do and say.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

I have been so grateful to have had wonderful experiences that led to me servng a mission. I went to BYUI and dated a great guy for a lot of that time, and while I was doing these things I constantly felt like progression in going to school and dating wasn't happening. I had talked to this young man a lot about the prospect of marriage and never had a burning desire to do it. He soon helped me realize that I had a bigger purpose than just school and marriage, which are both amazing things. I came to know that I needed to bring others happiness, and the way they were going to get it is through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am grateful for the ability to communicate with my Heavenly Father to get the reassurance that this is part of my divine plan. Show more Show less
