Hi I'm Jayde Chapman

I was born in Perth, Western Australia. I work in Real Estate. I love the beach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Perth, Western Australia. For my fathers work we traveled around WA, I attended four different Primary Schools but then settled in a country town for my high school years. After high school I completed a six month business course which then lead to working in Real Estate. Over the past 4 years I have gone from Reception to Assistant Property Manager and now run my own portfolio as a Property Manager. I am the eldest of five children. I had a brother and sister who passed away at a young age. I love the outdoors and the Australian lifestyle. Come summer time I will either be at the beach, camping, on the boat, snorkeling or sea biscuiting (water skiing).

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love it! I love the lifestyle, I love the people, I love my friends, I love who it makes me as an individual, but most of all I love the Saviour and my Heavenly Father. My faith is who I am. If it wasn't for the standards and guidelines that the gospel offers I would not be the person I am today. As a child I attend church because I didn't know any different, I went because my parents took me with them. Through youth my motivation to attend church was to see my friends. It wasn't until my family and I went on a holiday to the United States of America and visited the church history sites that I gained and recognized my own Testimony. I always had a testimony, but when I felt the goosebumps and the "warm and fuzzies" as I stood in the Sacred Grove, where the Prophet Joseph Smith once stood, I truly was converted to the gospel. Throughout my life I have been a member of The Chuch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have stayed a member because of the happiness it gives me. Because I have a purpose in life, I know why I am here and I know where I am going. I have goals, I have a reason and I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and knows me individually. There is no battle, no trial, no temptation that I can not over come because I know that I have that support when ever I need, all I have to do is kneel.

How I live my faith

I was luckily enough to be born into the church, I am third generation. I was baptized at the age of eight, where I there discovered my new best friend - The Holy Ghost. I have always been active in the church, no doubt there has been ups and downs and trials put in my way but I have always had the strength and faith to remain strong. I am currently the Young Single Adult representative for our ward. Prior to this my callings were; Second Councillor in Primary and Young Womens Secretary. I love helping the people in my ward. I especially love my current calling in Young Single Adults, it gives me the opportunity to bond with each individual on a more personal basis, I am more aware of each persons needs at that specific time in their life. Part of being the Young Single Adult representative requires me to organize activities. These activities are to bond and build friendships one with another, serve others and bring us closer to our Heavenly Father.
