Hi I'm Jaden L. Helquist

I love Competitive Sport Shooting, I Love FOOD! I live like a normal person and i'm a mormon

About Me

I am currently serving my mission in the Phillipines Bacolod mission, I am speaking Hilligaynon (Ilonggo). I reported to the MTC on 12/12/12, right before the "end" of the world... but i'm still here and so are you because you are reading this. Some of my favorite hobbies include a wide range of items. I am an avid sport shooter and love collecting firearms. I am also a springboard diver. Then comes my passsion for music, i may not be able to play any instrument but I love to sing. I am and outoging person willing to try something new and adventureous. my life never has been perfect... but to say the least i would not want to have had it any other way. my life is the thing that shapped me into the person I am today, still not perfect but one step closer.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am a Mormon is because i was adopted. I was extremely young when i was, but it is the reason why I am a Mormon. I grew up in an LDS family, so my seed has been berried deep in the gospel my whole life. I read the Book of Mormon at a young age and understood it only because of my parents. I later in life reread the wonderful book and took Moroni's challenge, a found out then for myself that the church was true. I know this church to be true and I love it. I know it to be true and will always stand by it.

How I live my faith

The way i live my faith right now is by giving my life to the Lord, our loving Heavenly Father, and serving him by serving the people of the Philippines. I put my whole soul into the work, trying to bring others into the gospel. I strive to be like Christ and do has he did, and does, and love every person I meet. I am trying to become the best deciple of Christ that I can be.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Jaden L. Helquist
for me the lifestyle of a member of this Church is that just like any other person. there are a few differences. we have received commandments from our Father in Heaven about our bodies. The first is called the Word of Wisdom, in which we learn that certain things are harmful for our bodies and how to eat a balanced diet. the next is called the law of chastity, which is centered on marriage, between a a man and a woman. we live the ten commandments and are a happy people. we face problems and challenges just like every other person. so we are just normal people.
