Hi I'm Jayden Ferrin

I grew up in Arizona, I'm a Missionary, I love bears, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, my name is Jayden. I was born in Arizona. I have awesome parents that have always been there for me. I have 3 sisters and 4 brothers. I play the drums. I enjoy camping, shooting, and fishing. I graduated from high school in 2012 and left for my full time mission in 2013 to the Florida, Orlando Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in the church, but everyone at some point needs to gain their own testimony. For me it was just a few years ago. I was able to gain my own testimony and now I'm out here preaching the Gospel. I'm so grateful that I have a loving Savior that's always there for me whenever I need him. Which, is all the time. I know I slip up a bunch, but I also know that he's always there to pick me back up. I know that through his Atonement, I have become a changed individual. I know I'm not perfect, he isn't asking me to be perfect right now, he only asks for me to be willing to be perfected through him over time. Change is a constant process, and sometimes it's a hard process, but it's necessary for us to be able to live with our Heavenly Father again and to reach our full potential. I love this Gospel, and I love my Savior. I don't need to worry and I can be happy, even when things get rough, because I know God is real, and that he loves his children.

How I live my faith

Well, I'm currently serving as a Full Time Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints (Mormons) As a missionary, I strive to help others in any way I can. Wether it be from physical service, or helping them spiritually come closer Christ. As a missionary I've devoted two years of my life to help others, and to share with them the restored gospel. I love seeing the changes this gospel can make in others lives, and I can promise you that there is no other place I'd rather be. (Not even Disneyworld)

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Jayden Ferrin
There are 3 main things we can do to strengthen our faith. 1. Read the scriptures, especially the Gospels and scriptures about Jesus Christ's personal ministry. How can we have faith in someone that we don't know much about? It's a huge step in helping us know who the Savior was and how he acted. 2. Prayer. The Holy Ghost is real. Moroni, a prophet in the Book of Mormon taught us that we can know the truth of all things by the power of the Holy Ghost. As we read about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, it's an essential step of gaining a testimony that we pray to our Heavenly Father to know the things we're asking are right. Then, when we receive our answer, we must act on the answer we receive and do the things that God requires of us. Doing so will increase that faith even more. 3. Church. A lot of prayers are answered at church. The most important part of Church is being able to partake of the Sacrament in memory of Jesus Christ. As we do so, we are accepting the sacrifice he made for us, and we're showing that we're willing to follow him. As we continually use the power of Christ's Atonement in our lives, we become a changed person. We come to know Christ personally and we start becoming more and more like him with every step we make.
