Hi I'm Jessica

I grew up in Fallon Nevada. I am an artist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

. I am from a small town called Fallon in the state of Nevada. I am the youngest of six children. I grew up on a dairy farm most of my life until my parents decided start a new business; which was a sod farm. As they started the sod farm the economy turned for the worse; we have struggled ever sense with finances. In my spare time I enjoy horseback riding, and any outdoor activity including playing Soccer. I also enjoy family activities, and spending time with my friends. My true passion is art of any kind, but mostly I draw. I have been drawing sense my mom caught me drawing on my bedroom walls; from that moment my parents knew I was going to be an artist. I am currently attending school at BYU Idaho; My major is art education with health education as a minor. I want to be a teacher because I want to help bring back important life skills back into the education of the youth. I believe art and creativity is lost in the teaching/ learning community. I want to change the lives of people to bring a brighter future.

Why I am a Mormon

I follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ because I have asked my father in heaven if it is the true church, and the answer I received was indescribable. It is a feeling that nothing on this earth can make you feel. I have done this several times and I have gained such a testimony of this gospel. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world; he lived and died for us, but what really made it real to me was when I put "me" in place of "us" and say he lived and died for me. I have never looked at it that way; I know that my father in heaven and my savior know and love me individually. I have a testimony the prophet Joseph Smith. For God to appear to a fourteen year old boy can sound a little far fetched, but to me it makes sense. Why would God appear to an adult by that time they have their own ideas on how things work, but a child is easy to teach; a child can be taught faster, and a child is open to knew ideas. Maybe God appeared to a child because only a child would listen. The life of Joseph was spent serving his fellow men which is the greatest thing you could ever do. I believe God would not have left his children on the earth without guidance. He spoke to his children throughout history through his prophets why would he not speak to us now. The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only church who has a prophet with proper authority, and I know this because I have prayed about it. The Book of Mormon is the key to understanding the gospel of Jesus Christ. it works hand in hand with the bible. I could not imagine my life with out this most wonderful book. It answers many of my life questions and I learn something more every time I read it. I leave these words with you in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to watch out for others to see what they need, and I try to help them in any way I can. I have helped plan many different activities for the youth of our church. I am currently preparing to serve a full time mission for the church.
