Hi I'm Jada

I grew up in the PNW, graduated high school with my AA, am a future missionary in the California Irvine Mission and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and lived there with my family for the first 19 years of my life. Due to some circumstances, I moved out of my mothers home when I was 17 and have since lived with my grandparents, amazing members in a previous ward, and now with my aunt and uncle whom I have resided with the last year. In those three different homes, I attended a local community college while simultaneously attending high school and graduated with my Associates Degree the same time I graduated with my high school diploma. Recently, on a vacation we felt prompted to leave everything we knew in out PNW home and moved to Idaho. I have flourished there but not without struggle. It was hard to leave my family and friends but I have grown a lot in Idaho and have been able to more seriously prepare to serve a mission. I recently got called to be a missionary and will report in just a short time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the church is something in my life that has always been there. Through moves and life changes, the church has never changed and never went away. The gospel is something consistent in a world full of inconsistency, or even in a life full of inconsistency. There are so many people who need that consistency and want that knowledge and I want people to know that it is out there and the gospel of Jesus Christ is that for me and it can be that for so many others. The gospel brings families together and is living proof that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have not left us on this earth alone to fend for ourselves. The church organizations and living prophets and apostles are all their to be the mouthpiece of the Savior and to help the fallen world.

How I live my faith

When I was in Young Women's, I moved wards every couple years for the first little while. I have been class President in each of my Young Women's classes and have had the opportunity to closely council with my ward Young Women presidencies as well as my own presidencies when dealing with difficult situations and just with knowing what to do to help the girls in my class. I also counseled with other class and quorum presidencies in youth counsels to plan activities and discover the needs of other youth in my ward. As of recent, I have been a Sunbeam teacher (that's the 3-4 year olds) in primary and it has been one of the most rewarding callings. Getting to help the two young spirits in my class learn more about the gospel and begin to sprout their own testimonies has been one of my favorite parts about going to church. Now, I am waiting to go out and serve a mission for my church.
