Hi I'm Jessica

I grew up on a farm in a small town in Utah, I am serving in the best mission ever, Manchester England, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a 19 year old small town girl who grew up driving tractors, herding cows, and loving life. One of my biggest trials has been enduring the plentiful teasing I get for being a blonde ;). I worked as a lifeguard throughout high school and my favorite part was teaching swimming lessons to all ages of children! I love music, dancing, singing, sports (especially Volleyball, and Swimming, and Track), the outdoors, and trying new things. I just finished my first year of university, and I'm serving in the Manchester England Mission for the next 18 months.

Why I am a Mormon

Starting when I was very young, I was taught the scripture stories and came to love the valiant prophets and other faithful examples in the scriptures. I also quickly came to love the primary songs and the messages they each carry in the lyrics and melodies. I was fortunate to grow up surrounded by so many leaders and examples who helped me see how living the gospel can bless our lives and make us happy. I know that if we put our trust in our Heavenly Father, He will help us through this life. As we pray for help, we will receive answers, and I know this to be true because I have received answers to my prayers. I have also felt the powerful love that God has for each of His children. He knows us personally and has a plan for each of us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by communicating with Heavenly Father in prayer daily, studying the scriptures, keeping the commandments, and trying to live a better life each day. Everything I do is simple, and yet, it's so rewarding! I have experienced so much happiness from being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Another way I live my faith is through service. I've served in different ways over the years, but the most challenging and rewarding service I have had an opportunity to participate in is what I am doing right now, serving as a missionary! I love getting to know new people every day and teaching them about the Savior.
