Hi I'm Jasmin

I'm from California. I love kids, scrapbooking and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of 3. My parents are from Mexico and my husband is from Tonga. I love to spend time with my family. They are my number one priority. I love children and am very involved in Primary the church's program for children. I work full time, but I always seem to find time to spend with my family and serve Our Heavenly Father. I feel very fortunate to know that I am his Daughter and he loves me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Morman because I know this gospel to be the true gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ and I know it to be true. I know that my family and I will be together for time and all eternity and this has been invaluable knowledge to me. When I was a child growing up in East Oakland I was able to see the Temple from my neighborhood. I would often ask my mother to take me up to that castle. I often wondered if a Princess lived there. She didn't want to take me because she said that place was only for rich people. Finally one day she took me. We toured the Temple grounds and watched a church movie. Later the missionaries came to visit us and soon after my younger brother and I were baptized. Now I know that yes the Oakland Temple is a King's Castle, it is The Lord's home, and he is the King. And I have the privilege of being part of his gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily through scripture study, personal and family prayer. Family Home Evening, mid week and Sunday participation at church. Although I am far from perfect I try my best to do these things as often as I can. I live my faith through teaching these things to my children which I know helps me and will help them in their lives as well.
