Hi I'm Jessica

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Utah, raised in Oregon, and now live in Georgia. I am the mother of five lovely daughters and the wife of one dashing man. I graduated from college and use the skills I developed earning my degree as I raise my family. I love to read, crochet, sew, and waterski. I wish I loved to exercise.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a 7th generation member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But I am a Mormon because I believe that it is the restoration of Christ's church on the earth today. I have read the Book of Mormon and received a witness that it is true. I have lived my life according to the principles taught by the living prophets and seen the wisdom of their teachings. I am a Mormon because the gospel makes me happy and gives me hope and direction.

How I live my faith

My faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ is at the core of who I am. And the principles Christ taught are the principles that guide my life. I seek direction from the Lord through daily prayer and gospel study. I try to treat everyone with love, kindness, compassion, and forgiveness. Service is an essential part of my life. Within our church organization I am in charge of the classes and activities for the children ages 18 months-11 years. It is a challenging and immensely rewarding job. I have opportunities to teach the children about the gospel and to help them feel the love of the Savior.

In whom should we have faith?

The first principle of the gospel is faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ. He is the head of our church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) and the Way we follow. We have faith in his divinity, his ability to save through the atonement, and that his promises are sure. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are central to our Heavenly Father's plan and are the fundamental unity of society. Strong and successful families give order to society and help build productive communities I find the greatest joy within my family. As a child my parents provided an environment where I felt loved, taught, and cared for. My siblings became my best friends. Home was a haven. Within my family I learned how to work, serve, solve problems, and negotiate differences. Now as a wife and mother, my role in the family gives my life purpose, meaning, and direction. I am challenged in ways that cause me to stretch my talents and refine my weaknesses. The hope for an eternal family gives me something to work for and helps me keep the rest of life's challenges in perspective. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

We believe that God is our Heavenly Father. He is all-wise and all-powerful. He has a perfected body of flesh and bones. We are created in His image. He is loving, kind,and generous. Because He loves us so much he has provided commandments to help guide us back to Him and a Savior so we could repent when we make mistakes. Show more Show less
