Hi I'm Jill Pursel

I am a wife, a mother, and a grandmother and each of those careers is the most rewarding of those with which I could have honored.

About Me

I was raised was born in a small town in southern Nevada, raised in a small town in west central Nevada, attended college in Utah and earned a degree in Education and have been teaching all of my life. My husband and I have the sweetest love story. I actually married the boy next door and we are still sweethearts after nearly 45 years of marriage.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has been the most guiding and directing influence of my life. Most importantly, I have a very strong testimony of the true purpose of our lives here on earth and the promises that our families can be together forever. I hope to share this knowledge with others as my husband and I serve a mission in Nauvoo, Illinois.

How I live my faith

I live my life by faith everyday of my life by the choices I make. I have learned that the patterns of righteousness I have established in my life bring me the greatest happiness and peace. These patterns include, prayer, scripture study, obedience to the commandments, and serving others. Teaching has been a very important part of my life and is one my great loves.
