Hi I'm Jesse Shields

I am 25 years old. I am going to school at Mississippi College to be an accountant. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi my name is Jesse. I am currently enrolled in college to be an accountant. I enjoy sports and love to hunt/fish. I served my mission in El Salvador and loved it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS Church. I have always been a member of the church, but I still had to receive my own personal conversion to the gospel of Jesus Christ. This happened for me when I was in the Missionary Training Center at the age of 19. I had always believed in the gospel before then, but when I read the Book of Mormon from beginning to end and prayed about it, I had no doubt that the writings contained within it were the truth. I continue to build my faith through following the commandments and being of service to others. I am very glad to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in the same way as the example set by Jesus Christ. I enjoy serving others and try to do that whenever I have the opportunity. I try my best to be a good person and a good example to everyone around me.
