Hi I'm Jaelynn

I do a little bit of everything when it comes to music, sports, academics, or just hanging out with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music. I play the piano and flute, and I love to sing as well. I love sports, too. I play basketball and volleyball, and I love them both. I love my family. I'm the middle child with two brothers, who I just think are the greatest guys around. My parents are awesome too; without them I truly don't know where I'd be. I love school and learning about things that Heavenly Father put on this earth for us to enjoy. I'm so blessed to be able to receive an education.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. It truly is the biggest blessing in my life. I love it because it gives me an opportunity to repent of wrongdoings and become clean again through Christ's sacrifice. It promises me that if I do all I'm supposed to, I can live in the presence of God with my family forever. It gives me guidance through the scriptures and the living prophet, and when I'm having a hard go at things I can always turn to this these resources for comfort. It is my constant reminder of why I'm here on earth and what my purpose is. This gospel gives me a million reasons to be happy and rejoice, and I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has a program for its youth to teach them about its principles every day. Early morning seminary is a class every weekday where I go to learn about the gospel. Although it is a sacrifice since class starts at six a.m. every morning, I love being there because it gives me courage to face my day at school. By starting my day off right with seminary, I can feel closer to God throughout the entire day. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to go to seminary.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I know that there is a God who loves each and everyone of His children without a doubt. I know this because He has given me a wonderful loving family who supports me, the gospel of Jesus Christ, and such a beautiful world to live in. I've had this fact testified to me again and again through the Holy Spirit when I look at the clear blue sky, watch a sunrise, hold a newborn infant in my arms, or even watching the snow fall miraculously from the sky. All of these testify to me and there is a God who loves me and cares about me, and I will be forever grateful to Him for that. Show more Show less
