Hi I'm Jesse

A BYU-I student from California, studying Broadcast Journalism and serving in the Lima Peru Central Mission. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a nineteen year old girl preparing to serve a mission in Lima, Peru for the next 18 months! I have completed 2 semesters at BYU-I and did a study abroad program through the Humanities Department where I was able to travel across Europe this spring. Since, I love to travel and want to experience the world. I was raised in Northern California with a convert Father and lifetime member Mother. I attended a Baptist based school all growing up which helped me to not only learn about another religion but also deepened my understanding and appreciation of my Latter-day Saint faith. I loved seminary and Young Womens. The church has shaped my entire life for the best! I am so thankful for all the members of my home ward who helped raise and guide me to where I am today, which will soon be Lima, Peru!

Why I am a Mormon

The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has shaped my entire life for the better. I love the Lord and am striving to serve him. I have been immensely blessed in my young life and this gospel has made my life so easy! I truly know that if you follow the commandments and the prophet, President Monson, that they will seem less like rules and instead become a path of happiness. This gospel is made for everyone and will help anyone in any situation become the best they can be if they will just read the Book of Mormon for themselves and try to do the right thing.

How I live my faith

I attend various Singles Wards at BYU-I and in my hometown of Redding, California. As I prepare for a mission it is helpful to surround myself with peers who are making righteous choices and striving to be their best. I love telling anyone who will listen that I will be serving in Peru!
