Hi I'm Jess

I was born in Orange County, CA. I grew up in West Valley City, Utah but now back in California, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born 5 generations into the LDS church. I worked 4 years in the transportation industry straight out of high school. I than began my passion with make up, starting as a part time free lance make up artist. I currently hold various callings in my ward such as Primary secretary and Primary chorister (which I enjoy!) I come from a family that has been involved in media such as doing photography and filming. I currently have 6 first cousins that are serving as full time missionaries all over the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being part of this amazing gospel. The church has blessed me in so many ways. I love the morals and standards the church teaches young people. This day and age, the adversary is so strong. When I was sick, I witnessed the power of the priesthood through faith. Through times of triumph and struggle, the gospel has always been a welcoming place when I was burdened by things of the world. When I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders, the gospel has always been my armor to protect me from harms way. At the age of 21 I thought I had everything I could have possibly wanted but something always seemed to be missing. I was not happy, worldly things brought temporary happiness but only through god can we gain eternal happiness. This gospel has taught me so much. I converted myself and heart to Heavenly father and witnessed true everlasting happiness. I have never turned back since then..

How I live my faith

Each Sunday I teach a group of kids ranging from the ages of 4-11 for 20 mins, where I teach them children church songs. We also do activities that help the children remember the songs like musical chairs, pictionary and board games. Each month we have a theme song where the kids would have to memorize the song for an upcoming church program that happens once a year. The kids give little speeches on our podium and the parents love it! As the secretary, I help coordinate activities for the kids for upcoming holidays such as Easter ,Christmas and Halloween. To summarize what I do I am an assistant to the primary president to help make her job easier.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

The Holy Ghost is a gift from our Heavenly Father. You can receive the gift of the Holy Ghost by becoming baptized. If you are in a situation where you don't know if you are making the right or wrong choice, the Holy Ghost is the still voice that helps you make the right choice however, we can only hear the Holy Ghost if we are quiet and reverent. The Holy Ghost cannot dwell in environments that are loud. Show more Show less
