Hi I'm Jess

I grew up in Massachusetts. I love to be active. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be active. I am a defender in soccer, and I also am a Latin Dance and Zumba instructor. I love everything to do with music; dancing, singing and even playing instruments (I am a violist). I am a sophomore at Brigham Young University-Idaho, and I love it there! I am majoring in International Studies, and my dream job would be to do charity field work internationally.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because in a world of turmoil, this is the only place I, or anyone, can find true happiness and complete peace. I am a mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and I know of it's truthfulness. The way that I feel while reading that book, and attending this gospel is incomparable. It is the essence of life, and everything just makes sense through the eyes of Christ. I am a mormon because I believe in Christ, and I believe that this is His church. The way that it is organized is only imperfect by man's mistakes, not those of Christ. Christ, my brother, and my Savior, suffered for all of my sins, and all of my afflictions. Any time I am upset, frustrated, anxious, nervous, depressed or afraid, I also feel peace because I know that Christ is there for me and He knows how I feel. I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know that this is His church. That is why I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That is why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

I love to serve. I believe that service is the best way to express Christ-like love. I work daily to improve myself and become a better person. Sometimes it is so hard because we feel the need to be perfect. But I Iive my faith by taking it one step at a time. I actively participate in church activities to keep my faith strong. My goal is to forget myself in the service of the Lord, in hopes that I find my true purpose.
