Hi I'm Jess

I love the outdoors and traveling, I wear chacos, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the mountains of Washington State and spent a few years out on the beaches of Hawaii where I went to college and graduated with a degree in Social Work. I guess you could say I have a little granola and beach bum in me. I love adventure and traveling. One of my favorite trips I’ve gone on was when I had the chance to backpack my way across eight different countries in Europe with three other friends. But don’t get me wrong, I also love a good camping trip by the lake in the summer. The only thing that can top going to some of my favorite places is being with some of my favorite people. I have an awesome family and some amazing friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because well I have had far too many experiences where the Holy Ghost has born witness to me of the truthfulness of this Gospel. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Christ’s Church on the earth today. I feel so blessed that I was able to be raised by parents who were both members of the Church. Because I grew up in the Church, I was taught the commandments and how God wanted me to live my life. But I was also taught that I needed to find out for myself if this was His true Church. Over the years, I have had many questions that I have prayed about and God answered my prayers. Maybe not quickly or how I would have hoped or even with the answer I wanted, but Heavenly Father answered my prayers. I have felt the spirit touch my heart and confirm to me that this is God’s true Church.

How I live my faith

I would say I live my faith through how I live my life and the choices I make on a daily basis. Living my faith means trying my hardest to be the daughter of God I know He wants me to be. I show respect for my body by dressing modestly. I exercise my faith by praying morning and night for those I love. I try and be kind and loving towards others by not being judgmental of their circumstances. I strive to be obedient by following the commandments. I am not perfect at these things, but I try and I know God knows my desires and will bless me for my efforts.
