Hi I'm Jessica Goettsche

I grew up in Utah. I am going to be a Marriage and Family counselor. I love to perform. I'm a missionary! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the place to be (clearly South Carolina, Columbia mission) where the bibles are free and the teeth are few. I love bringing people the blessings that heavenly father is waiting to bestow upon them. I love sharing the gospel, even in unreasonable rain storms...on a bike...in a skirt.

Why I am a Mormon

When my parents got divorced I had a really hard time with it. I stopped going to church because it broke my heart every time a lesson was taught about eternal families. I made some very poor choices and got into a lot of trouble. Eventually I was so lost and just so miserable and depressed and I attempted suicide. I did the only thing I knew how to do and that was to ask my heavenly father for help. I felt so much peace during that prayer and felt like someone was carrying the weight that was on my shoulders. My life didn't instantly get better. I still had to accept the consequences of my decisions, but I began to understand that just because my parents are divorced doesn't mean that my life meaningless. I ,my self, can still progress and learn what the gospel has to offer me and my future family. This gospel gave me a new start. It gave me comfort and peace during the hardest transitions of my life. I continue to follow the gospel because it gave me a purpose. I continue to follow this gospel because it changed my life. I continue to follow this gospel because I know that it is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by giving up 18 months of my life in full devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ and by spreading the restored gospel. Where in the ham sandwich would I rather be than preaching his gospel? Ah yes, no where! This gospel has changed my life and has given me purpose. I want everyone to have the blessings or the restored and fullness of Christs gospel!

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jessica Goettsche
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ our lord and savior. It is the convincing evidence that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints is the lords kingdom restored to the earth. All the doctrines that were lost after Christs death are contained in the Book of Mormon. It is a record of the "other sheep" that lived anciently in the Americas. Like the bible it is a history of ancient prophets and their testimonies of the savior. I testify that the Book of Mormon is true and you can have an answer from God for your self that it is true.
