Hi I'm Jade

I'm from California. I'm related to the ancient queen of Hawaii. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the second oldest of four kids. Aside from my dad we have a family of all girls! I have grown up in Southern California my whole life spending much time at the beach! Since graduating from high school, my new hobby/sport has been hiking! I just finished my first year of college and have decided to serve a mission. I have been assigned to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Cuernrvaca, Mexico, but have been reassigned to serve in the Chicago, Illinois mission Spanish speaking. After my mission I plan on returning to school and majoring in criminal justice.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up with the church my whole life. My family members have always been strong and faithful members of the church. As I grew, I began to learn more and more about the gospel and what it means to me. Whenever I had questions, I knew that I could always go to my Father in Heaven for comfort and help. Reaching my teenage years, I was always put to the test with my peers as to how I should be acting versus what the world now sees as acceptable. I knew that going to church every Sunday was a big influence in my life, as well as attending all the activities. I know that this gospel is the only true church on this Earth today. I know that Jesus Christ is the head of the church. And I know that it is through Him that I can be forgiven of all my sins and live with my family forever in the Heavenly Kingdom that God has prepared for us. The gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed my life with so much! He has given me all that I have. I am so grateful to be given the opportunity to be a missionary for His church.

How I live my faith

I have been a member of the church my whole life. Growing up, I have had the opportunity to be a leader over my peers. I am currently a missionary for the Church. Everyday I try my hardest to live and do the things that my Savior Jesus Christ would be proud of. I live my life trying every day to become more and more like my perfect and ultimate example Jesus Christ. I focus on the doctrines of Christ and help others everyday. I also write myself notes reminding me to have charity for all those around me and to never forget my purpose. I love getting to know new people and so serving a mission is an awesome opportunity to get to know all of our Heavenly Father´s children and all of my brothers and sisters in the mission-field!! I try to be someone my fellow sister missionaries can look up to and I am so stoked to have this chance to do the Lord´s work!!! I know the church is true, the book is blue, and there is always work to do!!!
