Hi I'm Jessika

God lives! We are never alone, and life is a beautiful ride. Hallelujah for second chances!

About Me

I believe that all people are connected! I want to make a real difference in the world. Public speaking is a talent of mine, I was undefeated and won state in Public Forum Debate my senior year of high school. I have 37 aunts and uncles and 114 cousins. I LOVE family, being outdoors, and debating! Anything rusty, old, or 'vintage' is definitely on my radar. I collect license plates, letters and awkward moments and am DETERMINED to help every woman on the planet understand her worth.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know my Savior lives. I know He died for my sins. I know that because of His atonement, I am able to be forgiven and empowered! There was a time in my life when I didn't want to believe something that seemed so illogical. I fell away from what I knew was right, and for a whileI thought I was happy. But when that faded, and the illusion was shattered I quickly learned that no 'joy' compares to the bliss of living the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Through faith in my Lord and Savior I returned to this truth, and He has led my life ever since. As a Mormon I have found my identity as a Daughter of God. I have felt the perfect love of my Elder Brother Jesus Christ, and I have had my sins and mistakes washed away. There is nothing on the earth that brings me as much peace, happiness, or hope as my testimony of this gospel. I am a Mormon because I know my Heavenly Father loves and is aware of me! I am a Mormon because the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real! I am a Mormon because this church is TRUE. I am a Mormon because I choose to love myself as He does. I am a Mormon because He is real, and alive, and perfect; and I am in constant need of His support. I am a Mormon because my Savior lives.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to serve a full time (18 months) mission for this church in Nagoya, Japan! I live my faith in every action I take. When you understand something is true, when you feel something as strongly and deeply as I do about this gospel, you can't help but pattern your life around that.
