Hi I'm Joslyn

I'm a Disney and Star Wars fanatic. I'm the oldest of four girls. I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Minnesota and moved to Missouri when I was very young. I've been there ever since and it is my home. I'm currently a college student at Brigham Young University. I'm thinking of majoring in Information Systems and going on to obtain an MBA afterwards, but plans can change! Starting July 2015, I will be serving an 18 month mission for my church to the Vitoria, Brazil mission! My family and I love to travel, and I've seen some amazing and humbling sights around the world through our adventures. I love anything Disney or Star Wars! I love to hike, read, swim, watch movies, and eat yummy food with my family and friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and following His commandments, I have felt true happiness and peace. I understand why I'm here and what will happen when I pass away. I'm not perfect and I've made mistakes that I've felt terrible about. But through it all, I know that the Savior of the world still loves me. He suffered for my sins and I have felt His personal love for me as an individual. He has a plan that is specific to me and what I need in my life to become more like Him. This knowledge of a plan and a Savior who loves me gives me real peace and pure joy. I rejoice that I can truly be with my family forever and that this life isn't an ending. I'm a Mormon because it gives me happiness and direction in my life that I couldn't find anywhere else.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through simple acts of kindness to those around me. The Savior was kind to everyone and although I'm definitely not perfect, I try to do what Christ would want. I'm constantly trying to improve myself and be more like Him. I've worked with many girls my age and through kindness like the Savior's, anybody can be your friend. I'm excited to dedicate 18 months of my life to serving the Lord and the people of Brazil. I know that it'll be hard, but I'll have the opportunity to share what makes me so happy with others.
