Hi I'm Jessa Gardner

I'm a missionary from Pocatello, Idaho serving in Taiwan Taichung. I'm happy as the sun, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the oldest of six kids in a crazy, awesome family. I have been involved in cheerleading, show choir, student government, art, and many other miscellaneous activities. I LOVE to play the piano and hope to continue improving my skills. I graduated high school in 2014 with highest honors and plan to further my education in business after my mission. A few of my favorite things are as follows: my family, the Book of Mormon, wonderful friends, nature, books, cilantro, smiles, pictures, music, pretty sights, laughing, service, the list goes on and on! I'm all about stopping in smelling the roses... Life is chaotic so I believe we all need to stop and enjoy the simple things once in awhile. I also plan to have a life full of adventures because why not?! I've been a Mormon my whole life and I LOVE IT.

Why I am a Mormon

As I've grown up, I have grown to love His gospel more and more. I know that God is my (and your) loving Heavenly Father and He has a plan for me. My life has a purpose! I have witnessed the happiness His Church brings and I know that happiness is there for everyone who follows Him. In times of stress, this church brings me peace. In times of doubt, this church brings me confidence. In times of confusion, this church brings me direction. And in times of joy, this church brings me more joy! I wouldn't be the person I am today without this church, and I am eternally grateful.

How I live my faith

My faith is my life! Literally. Currently, my life is completely dedicated to using my faith and serving our Heavenly Father as a full-time missionary in the Taiwan Taichung mission. I feel blessed, THRILLED, and humbled to share this beautiful gospel with those willing to listen.
