Hi I'm Jean

I grew up in a small town and was fascinated with the idea of moving to a big city; and did so. Now I study history at university.

About Me

I'm a normal girl with interests in silly, yet cool, things. I study history at this university named after an explorer, so it was an epic nerd moment being accepted into it. I also have a liking to writing, and sometimes people tell me I'm good at it. I like music, but mostly listening to it, since I can't really sing or play an instrument. I joke a lot, but it's puns, and blame my dad for that. He's a cool guy though, so maybe don't blame him for that. I haven't done a lot with my life, other than school. Like...I've never left British Columbia, so I would like to travel somewhere else sometime.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe a lot of things in life, and I believe everyone deserves a chance to explain themselves. That's why I first looked into this church, a church that infamously talked about. I was intrigued why everyone said so many bad things; and I, a person who believes there are two sides to a story, needed to see the church's side. After meeting with missionaries a few times, I slowly gained faith in these spiritual beings I knew existed, but never acknowledged. If I recall correctly, it was the lesson on the Plan of Salvation that truly caught my attention. I was very interested in this plan God has for us, and that it existed, and I realized: this is what I want in life. Thus, my decision to get baptized, after a few weeks of meeting great people, and finally feeling content with where I was in life. It all just became such a good feeling in a small amount of time; and despite my friend's and family's hesitation to getting baptized so fast, I had their support, and that's all that mattered to me.

How I live my faith

As a new member, I live and learn by my faith. I enjoy listening to people's testimonies to strengthen my own. I enjoy meeting new people - those who were raised in the church, and those who are recent converts. I am in the Family Home Evening Committee, which gives me the access to meet new people and learn new ways to build my faith more.
