Hi I'm Jessica Cox

I am a fun-loving, crafty, musical, bubbly missionary and daughter of God and I am a MORMON!!!

About Me

I am a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have given up 18 months of my life so that I can serve the Lord and help others to come unto Christ. I am the 2nd oldest of 5 kids in my family. I guess you could say that I am the odd one out of my family. Everyone in my family is very athletic, I on the other hand am more musically inclined. Don't get me wrong, I love sports, I'm just not that great at them... we all have our talents. All my life I have been raised on a farm- a turkey farm... actually, the largest turkey farm in Utah! While on the farm, I learned the principle of hard work. You aren't going to get anywhere in life if you don't work for it. That principle of work has carried with me throughout my teenage years where I worked multiple different jobs at once! (farm, lifeguard/swim teacher, cashier at a small business, pet care, babysitting, garden center) I guess you could say that I like to stay busy.

Why I am a Mormon

To put it simply, it just feels right. There have been times where I have felt so sad and alone, but my Savior, Jesus Christ is always there for me. I have come to know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the one true church on the earth today. I don't just believe it because someone told me that it is true, I know it because I have searched it out for myself. I have put in the work and the effort to come to know that it is true. "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask‍ God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith‍ in Christ, he will manifest‍ the truth‍ of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know‍ the truth‍ of all things." Moroni 10:4-5

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being Obedient to the Lord's commandments. It's not always easy, but I know that whatever the Lord commands that He will provide a way to accomplish it. He never leaves us alone, He loves each of us way too much to leave us here by ourselves. "And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will‍ go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments‍ unto the children of men, save he shall prepare‍ a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them." 1 Nephi 3:7
