Hi I'm Summer Jackson

I lived in California until moving to Utah for school. I love water polo, swim, and photography. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Summer and I love being outside, eating, and taking naps. I am a college student at Brigham Young University in Utah, and I just recently finished my first year. I love surfing, swimming, and water polo. I have been a swimmer since I was four and I love it! If you ask anyone, they would tell you that I laugh at everything. Life is more fun when you're happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the joy I feel from the gospel. It has made me want to be a better person every day, and to be happy no matter what. I love feeling the spirit, it's like a tingling sensation that runs through my body like a wave. That's honestly the only way I can describe it. I love knowing that I will be with my family forever and also that I can have the priesthood here to bless me. Knowing that I can have my dad give me a blessing, and knowing It is God speaking to me, gives me great comfort. Lastly, I am so impressed with how service oriented the church is. We know that by serving those around us, we are serving Hod and becoming more like Christ.

How I live my faith

While in college, I visit taught two girls on my floor in the dorm. It was amazing to me how much closer I was to them because of it. Now that I am home, I am helping with the primary children in their Sunday school class. Those kids bring me so much joy, and everything they say is hilarious. When I'm around them, I feel Christ's love, especially for the children.
