Hi I'm Jessica

I love nature. I love music. I LOVE being a mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in a rural area. I love to garden, pick huckleberries, farm, ranch, ride bikes, hike, and fish. I love studying nature and pondering it's creation by a thoughtful Father in Heaven. I play the violin. I love the influence of good music. It can brighten even the cloudiest of days. Being a mommy is my absolute favorite job. I love everything from the runny noses, boo boo kissing, night wakings. It's all worth it when little arms encircle your neck and soft little cheeks brush yours. There are sacrifices I have made to be a mom, but truly the privilege of raising and nurturing children is absolutely worth it to me. I have been richly blessed by my latter-day pioneer heritage. My mother joined the church when I was young. It was her unconditional love that first taught me what God's love is like.

Why I am a Mormon

I would like to share eight beautiful truths God has taught me. First, Heavenly Father wants us to be happy. The very most sincere desires of our hearts, he wants for us too. He knows what we want, and he wants to bless us with those things. Second, He can see the whole picture. He knows the exact path we need to follow in order to find those deep joys and desires. Third, we can trust him. Sometimes the direction He is leading us seems opposite to the direction of our happiness, but we can have faith that he is leading us the right way. Fourth. it takes action and effort to have faith. Don't give up. He will never give up on us. He is not angry when our faith may falter and we are brought to our knees in despair. He will always be there to help dry our tears and stand us up again. Fifth, Jesus Christ's atonement heals unconditionally. Whether it is a pain we have brought upon our selves, or someone else, Jesus Christ, the healer, has the ability to bind all wounds. Sixth, plead for deliverance from temptations. Pour out your soul when you must fight with your heart The Lord hears and he will deliver you. It may take time, but he will. Seventh, do not be ashamed to need help. Christ has power to help you over come all. He has the power to heal all. He does not greet our pleas with disapproval and judgement. He embraces us, relieved that we have come to him. Eighth, Heavenly Father loves you. To think otherwise is to reduce a perfect God. He is so great because he loves us even when we're imperfect. He rejoices when we seek him, because he will lead us to true and lasting joy. He awaits continuously with arms wide open to receive us. No matter how many times we've wondered off, or turned away, his arms are stretched out still. I have been the recipient of so much of God's love. I am so grateful to know of his kind and loving ways. I want so much for you to feel the joy and peace I have. I know God loves you. Look for his love, I know you will find it.

How I live my faith

I currently teach the 4 and 5 year olds at church, and help with monthly meetings just for the women! I enjoy the purity of young children, and watching them as they discuss religious topics simply and beautifully. I also enjoy the monthly meeting especially for the women. We learn new skills, socialize, and enjoy refreshments. It is such a blessing to attend church where my faith is strengthened as I see and hear the expression of other people's faith.
