Hi I'm Jessica

I'm a full time student. I'm a future missionary. I'm an outdoor freak. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

If I'm not going to class or studying for exams, you can usually find me doing something outside. I absolutely am in love with the planet that we live on and I think it has endless beauty to discover. If it's outside and anywhere between watching a sunset or hiking the entire Grand Canyon, I'm probably interested.

Why I am a Mormon

It's a funny thing because sometimes I wonder if it would be easier to not be a Mormon, but I've found that when I am living this gospel, my life feels much more fulfilling and lighter. Now, by no means does my life actually get easier, but there is safety in the principles of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. And the best part is that this is His gospel, so He is the source of that fulfillment and that light and the ease of burdens. He is an eternal being who offers eternal joy if we will just come to him. What could be more beautiful?

How I live my faith

I used to have this amazing support group of friends in high school that mostly believed in the same religion as me. We all kept each other in check and had lots of fun together. But then everyone moved to either Provo to go to BYU, or left on a mission. This left me with one friend out of my entire support system. I really have had to turn to my Savior in this time in my life. It's not that He was particularly distant before, but now He is my closest friend. With His help, I can have the energy that I need for every long, bad, lonely day. With His help, I can get done an impossible number of tasks. With His help, I can become something great.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Missions are not required, but they are strongly encouraged. It is the persons choice wether they want to devote 2 years of their life to the Lord and show their love for other people and the Lord by sharing the gospel. Missionaries are volunteers. we love our missionaries! Show more Show less
