Hi I'm Jessica

I'm a Mormon and I love life. I am married to a wonderful husband and we have a little girl.

About Me

I am a convert to the LDS church. I met my husband in August 2010 and was baptized October 10, 2010. I had the privileged of being baptized by a worthy priesthood holder who later became my husband on February 25, 2011. We are now sealed together for eternity and have a sweet baby girl. She is quite a little miracle as she was born without a heartbeat. Through prayer, priesthood blessings, and faith she was able to make a full recovery and is now a thriving nine month old. The gospel has brought exceptionally great joy into my life. Before becoming a member of the LDS faith I felt empty and alone. I was very confused about Heavenly Father and didn't know where to turn to get answers as to what I should be doing with my life. When I was introduced to the church I immediately felt at home, this was what I had been searching for! My family and I live a simple but cherished life. We enjoy many things together such as, Family Home Evenings, trips to the park, hiking, game night, movies, and our newest adventure...going to the outdoor swap meet. What can I say, I like a good deal :) To accept the gospel into your life is to learn what true happiness is. Heavenly Father is the most loving and compassionate Father we could ever have. I know he gave his only Son because he has a great love for his other children. I am so very grateful for the opportunity to serve The Lord, the Savior Jesus Christ, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. ♡

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church is true. I have seen many miracles in my life. As mentioned before one of those miracles is my daughter. Science tells us everyday that she should not be alive and doing as well as she is but, even the doctors recognized that there was a 'higher power' that played a role in her recovery. My husband and I know that 'higher power' is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. Our daughter is a living testimony of God and his mighty works within our lives. Even before I had a child I knew this church was true. I have had the Holy Spirit whisper it to me on multiple occasions. I have felt it when I walk into the chapel within our church building, I have felt it when I open my Book of Mormon, and I have felt it when I kneel down and pray each day. I know Heavenly Father hears us and I know He loves all of us. I have chosen to become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in the sacred grove. I have attended many other church meetings among different faiths and never before have I experienced so much joy and completeness as I have with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

My calling within my ward is Activity Days Assistant. Within my calling I work with the 8-11 year old girls. We make crafts, learn new skills, and grow as daughters of God. I also help in organizing many events for the ward. I am currently organizing the Relief Society Anniversary dinner (an organization for the women within the church) I have a passion for party planning, I'm kind of a Pinterest addict. Other ways that my family and I live our faith is within our everyday lives. We choose wholesome activities, friends, even television shows. I support my husband in his calling and we attend church every Sunday. Our church does have long sessions, three hours to be exact, but it really does go by fast. Three hours almost isn't enough to feel spiritually charged for each week, especially when you have an active nine month old distracting you from the lessons.
