Hi I'm Jessica

I grew up in Utah and have been called to serve a mission in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to draw and paint. Art was always my favorite subject in school and is a way to pass time while getting better at it. I always find myself drawing or doodling something during the day. I also love children (when they are good) and even though I am not yet a parent, I find joy in making children happy and to help them learn things at the daycare I have worked at for a long time. I also enjoy good music that makes me happy and lifts my spirits when I'm feeling down. But my favorite thing to do is to be with my family. I enjoy their company especially when we are laughing and crying because we are laughing too hard. And I am glad that we can still be a family after this life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found truth in this gospel and there is so much evidence that I have found and learned that I know this is the true church that God has restored to this earth. I know The Lord has a plan for everyone. He has a plan for our trials, our tragedies, our successes, and our happiness and I know that He never has and never will have any intention of leaving our side through every part of our lives. We will face trials no matter what but I know they are placed in our lives to build us up to become a stronger and better version of ourselves. This gospel teaches so many things to help us understand why we are here on this earth and where we are going after this life. Heavenly Father has given us the Plan of Salvation which is also known as the Plan of Happiness. I know that death is not the end and that our temporal bodies may pass away, but our spirits live on. I am so grateful to know of this true gospel and I love my Heavenly Father because of all He has given me.

How I live my faith

I attend a singles ward and it is amazing how beautiful the hymns are when we sing each Sunday and when the choir sings. All the young voices sound amazing together! I am a ward missionary so I go out to visit those who might want to come to the ward and need a little help getting there or just those who we think need a friendly visit!

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Jessica
Mormons seek to bless and help everyone, not just other Mormons. We love to serve because it not only helps out others but it makes us want to help even more people because of the joy it brings us. Service is also one of the things in life that is free and we freely dedicate our time to helping and serving anyone who needs it. Show more Show less
