Hi I'm Jaelyn

I grew up in a small town in Southern Utah. I am currently preparing to serve a mission. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently a sophomore in college. While attending college I have been working with individuals who have developmental disabilities. I have learned so much while working with these individuals. They have become some of my greatest friends and the continue to teach me every day. I enjoy doing activities with these individuals. They are a significant part of my day-to-day life and I wouldn't trade that for anything. I am the oldest of 5 children and I absolutely love it! I love playing with them and being around their fun, energetic, loving personalities.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in a Latter-day Saint family where I was taught of it's teachings. However, I have had man y opportunities to exercise my own faith and learn for myself of the truthfulness of the gospel. A lot of people will tell you that they knew the church was true through some magnificent experience, but for me I learned of this through exercising my faith through the hard and trying times of my life. As I put my trust in my Heavenly Father and asked for his help, I saw his hand in my life guiding me and directing me through those hard times. Although those situations were not easy to overcome, I was given the strength I needed to be able to overcome them. Through these faith building experiences I have come to know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true!

How I live my faith

I have served on a Multi-Stake Activities Committee in a Young Single Adult (YSA) stake. Here we planned activities where YSA's were given the opportunity to meet and interact with other YSA's in the area. Some of these activities consisted of movie nights, service projects, dances, holiday parties, and many more activities. We also organized weekly devotionals on Sunday evenings where YSA's would come together to hear wonderful speakers, and then mingle and enjoy treats together after. I had the opportunity to interact with many of the YSA's as well as many well-known speakers, especially our church leaders.
