Hi I'm Jamie

I'm from Utah. I love being involved in sports and my community. My family means everything to me! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated high school and am about to serve a mission in Vancouver, Canada. I am very athletic. In high school I played soccer, basketball, and I hurdled in track. I love being involved and have held many leadership positions. I like to travel. I spend most summers taveling and going on any adventures I can with those I love. In my life I have gone through some trials that have shaped me into the person I am. My dad passed away after a seven year fight with brain cancer when I was 17. I also have been injured a lot and had to go through a couple surgeries to fix a bunch of torn ligaments in my ankles. I love my life and love sharing what I love most, the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints helps me come closer to Christ and be apart of his church. By living the gospel and being obedient to what is taught I am blessed beyond what can be explained by man. When my dad passed away knowing that God has a plan for each of us and that I will see and get to live for eternity with my family if I remain faithful is all that got me through and continues to get me through. Every time in my life when it feels like I'm just trudging through and I don't know how I am possibly going to make it through, living the gospel is what gets me through. It's what gives me the strength and peace to be able to move on and keep going. That's my I'm a Mormon and that's why I do all I can to live the gospel of Jesus Christ because I am blessed to be able to make it through all life's problems and trials with peace in my heart knowing everything will be ok in the end. That brings me great joy! I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Gods only true and complete church on the earth today. He wants us to come unto him and he promises when we do and we are obedient to him and all he asks of us, he will bless us. I know he will. I know I am a Child of God and that God has a plan for me and everyone of his children! I am a Mormon because I am blessed for following the Savior and those blessing are priceless. The knowledge, peace, and comfort that comes from being a member of this church is something I would never give up and I would choose it every time.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church meetings every week and participating in any events held throughout the week. I come from a small tightknit community where the majority are Mormons. We love to get together with our families and just enjoy time together laughing and playing as well as growing closer to Jesus Christ and his gospel. I take classes in school and every Wednesday night to learn more about the gospel and have fun with friends. This is called Seminary and Institute classes. I have been a leader among the young women of the church and have helped to plan and put together summer camps for them to learn more about Christ and his gospel. I love learning more about the gospel and the teachings of Jesus Christ so any chance I have to learn, I take it.
