Hi I'm Jessica

Called to serve in the Philippines. I love to smile. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of four girls. I was born and raised in Utah and grew up in a loving, supportive family. I have awesome parents. I am passionate about music and I play the piano and guitar. I enjoy the outdoors, the theater, good photography, cleaning and organizing, doing service, playing with children, and spending time with family and friends. I went to college for a year and a half before receiving my call to serve the Lord as a full-time missionary. I couldn't feel more excited or blessed to be serving our Heavenly Father's children in the Philippines.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. There is no greater joy I feel than when I am following and obeying God's commandments and His plan for me. As I pray and study the scriptures daily, I feel God's love and approval for what I am doing as He guides me throughout my life and the choices I make. Knowing that Jesus Christ Atoned for not only my sins, but my pains and afflictions as well, gives me strength to endure every trial I have with faith, knowing that I am never alone because Christ knows how I feel and He will comfort me. Having His gospel in my life has provided me with incredible blessings, peace, joy, and strength, that I know can only come from being a member of His church.

How I live my faith

Heavenly Father loves each of His children so much and wants us to be happy. Our life is a gift from Him, and it is a truly wonderful gift. Since I know this, it helps me live my life in a way that is pleasing to Him, as a way of thanks for what He has given me. I try my best to live my faith by finding ways to serve others, even if it's just a simple smile, a thank you, calling a friend, or asking a family member or friend what I can do to help. Any act of service helps me come closer to Christ. I feel His love more abundantly as I serve others and I know that it is just a small way of saying "thank you" to God for all He has blessed me with.
