Hi I'm Jenessa Taylor

I recently graduated from BYU with my husband. I I love playing the piano, traveling, and throwing parties. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Northern California and love the Bay Area. I recently graduated from Brigham Young University in Political Science with a minor in Public Relations. I'm currently working on the Communications team at the Utah House of Representatives. My husband, four older siblings, and darling parents are my favorite people in the world. My dream is to live all over the world writing a book about how we are all more similar than we are different. I love to read, celebrate holidays, and play the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because my love for the gospel of Jesus Christ brings me peace, joy, and direction. With my Savior as my center and example of my life, I am becoming more of the person I want to be. I'm a Mormon because there has never been a book more precious to me than the Book of Mormon. The spirit that touches my heart when I open that sacred book is undeniable. I'm a Mormon because the promise of eternal life with my family gives me hope. It pushes me each day to be a little better for myself, for my family, and for my Savior. I know my Savior atoned for my sins and understands everything I go through. I'm a Mormon because truth is hard to come by in this day and age, but with the gospel of Jesus Christ at the center of my life, the most pure truth is always right there.

How I live my faith

I currently striving to live my faith through my simple day-to-day actions. I pray each morning to find someone I can serve. I try to love those I meet and see the beauty and worth in each individual. I do my best to follow the Spirit and have that guidance with me all throughout the day. I read my scriptures diligently in hopes to draw closer to my Father in Heaven and find answers to my prayers for myself and those I serve. I hope to someday become someone whose actions do not portray Christ, but whose entire countenance portrays Christ.
