Hi I'm Jessica

I'm a twin. I'm a werido. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

You'll often find me in the company of Anne Elliot, Frodo Baggins, Harry Potter and Margaret Hale. To escape to a different world through the pages of a book is very much my cup of tea. However if I happen to not be walking the streets of Bath with Miss Anne Elliot, or sulking through Professor Snape's potions class with Harry, I'll be following the ark of bulrushes that holds baby Moses as he floats down the river, or I'll be amongst the Nephites who beheld the resurrected Son of God, or there'll I'll sit with the saints as the Prophet Joseph Smith offers the dedicatory prayer for the Kirtland, Ohio Temple. My soul savors the well written words of a book, but more especially the true written word of God. How I do love to read! The magic a book conjures within the breast of it's reader- that is what I, as a person, strive to do, or to be like, a good book, for the steps I take in my life now determine the ending of my story. The pages written in my book are rather funny, for I fancy myself very much like a Hobbit, having, in the words of Tolkien a mouth "apt to laughter, and to eating . . ." I thoroughly enjoy to play the piano but with blundering fingers all you'll hear are melodies stumbling along. My twin is my best friend, and she, in contrast, is what I refer to as a "Pro" when it comes to the piano. It appears as though she got the magic fingers, for they fly and dance upon the keys, they being so well acquainted with the notes. To sum it up- I am a weirdo.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family and it wasn't until the summer before I began High School that I thought to myself "I ought to read the Book of Mormon." I wasn't expecting the power and peace the words of The Book of Mormon would instill into my heart. I read to feel the Spirit, not to say that I had read the book, but simply for myself to know of it's truth. The strong figures of faith and courage found in this glorious book- Nephi, Ammon, Captain Moroni, and Moroni- were my close friends during High School as I continued to read the Book of Mormon. They reminded me of what really mattered and gave me the muscle required to get through Freshman year. The Book of Mormon felt good to read, and I kept wanting to read it because it kindled a fire within my heart, a burning desire to know God. The more I read of this book the closer I felt to God, and the louder this melody became in my heart. I have continued to read The Book of Mormon, and it has become a source of refuge, it has held the answers to my personal prayers, and has guided me. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My faith is in Jesus Christ, and so how I live my faith is by striving to be like him. I try to see him as my hero, rather than the celebrities of Hollywood, or characters in Movies, TV shows, books, or even famous athletes. Jesus Christ being my hero I want to serve, reach out to others, show respect, love those around me, and try to love those who I don't particularly see eye to eye with. My faith in Jesus Christ has inspired me to serve a mission. I'll soon be leaving to serve my God, to bring others to my hero- Jesus Christ.
