Hi I'm Jillian (Jill)

Southern Californian serving a full-time mission in Des Moines, Iowa - spanish speaking. :) Soy Mormona!

About Me

I was born and raised in Southern California. I love the sun and anything that has to do with the beach. I love salsa dancing and llamas. Rice and beans are life. You'll never catch me not wearing my flip flops. I'm always looking for a new adventure or good shenanigans to get into.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, but when I hit my later teen years I realized I had some issues with it that had never been sufficiently resolved. Things were happening in my life that were hard and so I placed all my anger and resentment on God and religion in general. I did that for many years and resulted in me distancing myself very far from Him and the gospel. I could hardly say that I had a testimony about anything. I was tired of feeling the way I did and I just wanted peace. One thing I learned was that Heavenly Father is a perfect and loving parent and that He is so patient. Through all my craziness, He was always there waiting and showing me little bits of His love for me in amounts that I could handle. When I was ready, He changed my life. He pointed me on a path back to my Savior and through His and Jesus Christ's help, I was able to heal. The gospel of Jesus Christ is SO BEAUTIFUL and I have such a strong testimony of it. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and I know that His Atonement is real. I know that God really does exist and that He loves me so much!! I know that there is nothing we can't overcome with Their help. I know that it's through Jesus Christ that we find real happiness in this life and through this gospel, we can have a personal relationship with Him and the Father. I'm SO MUCH MORE HAPPY now than I have ever been!! I was missing out on so much without even realizing it! Seriously. This gospel is the best thing that's ever happened to me and I am SO GRATEFUL for it.

How I live my faith

I'm living my faith all day everyday right now by being a full-time missionary for Jesus Christ's true church. I seriously have the best job in the entire universe. I get to teach others about Heavenly Father and how He loves all of His children individually and how they have a Savior named Jesus Christ who came to this Earth to help them be free from sin and to be sincerely happy. I get to show them how to come to know their Savior and Father in Heaven and to feel their love, and to take advantage of the wonderful blessings of the gospel that has been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith.
