Hi I'm Jackie

I am a daughter, a friend, owner of many animals and one happy Mormon.

About Me

I am a jack of all trades...master of none. I am always learning new things and enjoying life. I love anything that allows me to be outside, especially in the mountains. I am an art major at Southern Virginia University. I love being able to work with my hands. I am having a blast playing my last year of soccer, and am looking forward to my last year of lacrosse at SVU. While art is my undergraduate major, I hope to one day have a degree in veterinary medicine! Ever since I was little I have had an obsession for animals, and an internship in high school sealed the deal for me to be a veterinarian. I was baptized at age eight, but took me until I was in 9th grade to read the Book of Mormon cover to cover. Ever since then, I have been hooked. My life changed as I was able to read it for myself and ask God in prayer for a confirmation of its truth. I know it is God's word. Since I have been away at College, I have come to be converted to not only the authenticity of the Book of Mormon, but to all that is encompassed. I have come to know better my standing with God through learning & living each principle of the Gospel. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love each of us, I know they love me. I love this Gospel of Christ because it has produced amazing things in my life and in the lives of many I love. He wants us to see the miracles already happening around us but He wont force us to take off our blinders. I am grateful to follow Him and see life clearer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon multiple times. I have studied it along with the Bible and have prayed, deeply thinking about its message. I know it is true. Like it says in Moroni 10: 3-5, I have experimented with its teachings and have found them to be good. The teachings in the Gospel of Jesus Christ as found in the Book of Mormon and the Bible have brightened and balanced my life. I know my Savior, Jesus Christ, and have faith in His Atonement. I am a Mormon because I love the Book of Mormon, I love living the Doctrine of Jesus Christ. How can something, if it is not true, produce such simply beautiful things? If you haven't already, check it out and chat with some of our great missionaries :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by working daily to become more like my Savior, Jesus Christ. I read from the scriptures everyday, I pray often, and love attending church. These seemly simple things bring so much joy and peace to my life. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has strengthened me through the rough and tough patches I come across. I have been so blessed, I cannot possibly keep it to myself so I am constantly looking to share with others.
