Hi I'm Jennica Watkins

I’m from Salt Lake City, UT, I love movies, the outdoors, and people. I'm a missionary in The Nations Capitol.

About Me

I’m the youngest of 5 kids and my family means the world to me. I love exploring new things, places, and cultures, making Washington DC my favorite place in the world. I just so happen to be serving a full time mission here. I grew up in the church and couldn’t be happier that I did. I love playing sports, dancing, and being active, but love taking time to just sit and watch movies too. As long as I’m with the people I love, I’m having a good time. Upon returning home I plan on continuing my education at a university and working hard to make a difference in someone else’s life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it brings me happiness. I feel sure direction and peace in my life whenever I heed to the Holy Spirit. I am a Mormon because even with all the sadness in the world we live in, I found myself and am truly happy. Because I am a member of the church, I am blessed to know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me no matter how short I fall, and that I can return to live with Him again if I choose to follow His commandments and direction given through revelation to our true modern day prophet, and through prophets of old in the scriptures. I feel peace and support to know I can live with my eternal family who I love, forever. I love the organization of the church that Jesus Christ established, and feel truly lifted and supported by others in the church who, like me, are not perfect, but are trying. I am a Mormon because Jesus Christ came to this Earth for me so I can return to my Father in Heaven. He came to this Earth to set a perfect example that we strive to follow. We all have free will to make our own choices, and I have chosen to follow Him. His gospel means everything to me and without it, I would be lost. I know with all my heart that this is Jesus Christ’s church restored on the earth, and that by reading the Book of Mormon and praying for answers from our loving Heavenly Father, anyone else can do the same.

How I live my faith

Well right now I am living my faith by serving as a missionary and bringing truth to those who are ready to receive it. But before and after this, I live my faith by just being an example! Christ set the perfect example of who we should be and I do my best to follow Him. And I do it through everyday acts of kindness and love.
