Hi I'm Jeanice

I grew up in North Carolina. I'm a student in the dietetics program. I love the simple things. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm in my third year of college hoping to someday be a registered dietitian. I love food and exploring cultures through their cuisine. In my free time I enjoy baking, reading, watching movies, learning, and cycling. I love to go road-tripping across the United States with friends or family, and someday I hope to have a family of my own to go traveling with. Being raised in the South gave me the mentality to find joy in the simple things and beauty in the intricate world around us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because throughout my life I have come to realize that I am a child of God and I know that he loves and is aware of me. I have had numerous prayers answered, and wherever I go or in whatever I do I can feel that I am not alone. Families are essential in this life, and I know that I will be able to live with my family throughout eternity. Christ is the cornerstone of my faith, and I love striving to follow his example of love, service, and kindness towards everyone. I know that charity towards all mankind does so much to build relationships and undo evil, and being a Mormon helps me understand why. Following His gospel helps me to be a better person.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by finding ways to help other members whether it's through acts of love and service or simply through a thoughtful visit. I've had the opportunity to help organize and participate in youth activities that provide service and fellowship opportunities. My knowledge of Christ's doctrine has increased as I've taught lessons in church meetings and listened to the knowledge and testimonies of others. I love being able to help others feel the love of God through music as I've been able to direct music for our meetings and participate in musical programs.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are not only the basic unit of society, but they are also the basic unit of the Church. After this life, heaven will be organized around families and extended families. Families have the ability to be together forever, and in our families we learn to love, serve, and teach one another. In our families we learn the principles of forgiveness and charity. Parents have the opportunity to rear children in love and righteousness and are raising the future generation. Show more Show less
