Hi I'm Jaymie

I grew up in Sacramento, California. I am a Mormon and I am called to serve in the New York New York North Mission.

About Me

One of my biggest motivations in life is my desire to find happiness. I love the great outdoors , fitness and hiking. I joined the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints about three years ago and have never looked back since. I am going to college and look forward to becoming a dentist.

Why I am a Mormon

I am LDS because I have found peace, joy and comfort while living within the church. Before converting to the church, I could not find a church that seemed to answer all my questions and left me with hope. One thing in particular that I struggled with the concept that most christian religions teach concerning the afterlife: There is only Heaven and Hell; you must be perfect to get to heaven and if you mess up the least bit you will go to hell. However, when the missionaries taught the plan of salvation and explained the three degrees of glory, the spirit testified of God's love and mercy for his children. Instead of being discouraged by my faults, I begin to learn that if we tried our best we could be accepted into the kingdom of Heaven through the atonement.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my very best to do what God asks of me. My pass callings include girls camp leader and laurel class president. Pretty soon, I will be ordained as a missionary to preach the gospel.
