Hi I'm Jo

I was born in California and moved to Utah when I turned four. I am one in a family of seven and I am proud to be a mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old I have a big family that makes me laugh on a daily basis. I love to dance, play volleyball, and write poetry. I just finished my first year of college just doing general education. I'm interested in doing something with marriage and family relationships. I am taking a break from school right now and will soon be leaving to serve a LDS Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am mormon for one reason, Christlike love. I know in my heart that the Church Of Jesus Christ Of the Latter Day Saints is a church full of love. I know that Heavenly Father loves everyone of his children and wants them all to returned to him. I am Mormon because the gospel is simple and I feel the spirit testify to me the truth of this church. I will continue to follow this gospel, because with it I have standards that keep me on the right path. I have values that bring up my self esteem and help me get through any challenges I may face in this life. I am thankful for the blessing it is to be able to pray to my Father In Heaven whenever I need him. I have a strong testimony that the Lord knows each and everyone of us personally.

How I live my faith

I currently am back at my home ward and stake, but at my college I was the FHE coordinator. I was so grateful for this calling in my ward and received many blessings, as my testimony of missionary work and the gospel was strengthened. I have been Mormon my whole life and I know that this church has brought me so much joy and it is the closest thing I have to achieving eternal happiness. I have been called to serve a full time mission and will be laboring in the Philippines. I am so humbled and filled with gratitude for this amazing opportunity that I have to spread the gospel to heavenly fathers beautiful children.
