Hi I'm Jadyn

I'm a Gemini. I eat grapefruits like oranges. I'm a dog person. I'm a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When people ask me one word that describes me I reply "purple". A bit odd perhaps, but think... purple is made up of what two colors? Blue: Committed, sensitive and self-controlled. The blue side of me is constantly seeking perfection in everything I do; my music, my work, even my outfits! It is the voice of reason in my life, and helps me to keep perspective and compassion towards those around me. It is probably the biggest reason that I am so interested the human brain/psychology and am fascinated by the fact that we are all individuals who have our own thoughts, likes, and dislikes. Red: Outgoing, passionate, and impulsive. In a stark contrast to by blue self, the red in me is a hot-headed firecracker who has a mouth running a mile a minute. It fuels my creative/artistic impulses and is the reason why I find such joy in being a musician and a thespian! It drives my love of languages and different cultures and my desire to travel around the world and experience them. And there you have it: blue and red. Two completely opposite colors, yet when they are combined you find exactly who I am. A lover of chocolate, bicycle rides, and boxer dogs. A victim of laugh attacks, a dancer with two left feet, and a person who can't sit through a horror movie. A writer, an artist, a musician. A daughter, a sibling, a friend. And a mormon. :)

Why I am a Mormon

Being born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I was taught from a young age that this is the true Church of God. I never really questioned it, I just knew. And I still know. My testimony for this gospel burns stronger than any fire. I am absolutely positive that it is the true Church of God! However, that doesn't mean that I don't have a "conversion story". I believe that there comes a time in everyone's life where they must look inside themselves and examine their faith: what it means to them, and why they believe it. Around the end of my Sophomore year in High School and all through my Junior year I went through a period of trials and personal examination and though it was tough I learned one very important thing... that Jesus Christ is my Savior and my Redeemer and that without him I am absolutely nothing. I rely on him with every aspect of my life and in his absence my soul is weary. His saving atonement is something that I am grateful for every day, and I am thankful beyond measure to belong to a Church where I know simple truths that have made living life easier, happier, and safer.

How I live my faith

I try my hardest to live my faith the way it states is 1 Timothy: through example. In High School, where the social standard of morality is swiftly deteriorating, I try the very best I can to be an "example of the believers" through the way I dress, speak, and treat others. Especially in the Performing Arts division of the district, it can be hard sometimes to stand up for my standards and to stay firm in what I believe in, but I have experienced the blessing that can come from living the Gopel, and I know that through my example I am able to show those who are not of our faith what our Church is about.
