Hi I'm Jaydene de Kock

I'm a free-spirited, happy South African, a graduate, a missionary, a firm believer in Serendipity and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 22 years old, I've just completed my best 4 years at University getting my degree in a Education, Early Childhood Development, Foundation Phase and Psychology. I've got the dreamers disease, I'm crazy about music, love feathers and wish I was Pocahontas. :) I dream of changing the world , I love happy endings, sunny days, the laughter of those I love, picnics and creating and exploring. Most importantly I love my beautiful family, my amazing friends, my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ and I LOVE this gospel and I'm a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints serving in worlds best mission: The Kirtland Visitors Center in Ohio.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I choose to be Mormon. It is a choice that I have made for myself and it is a decision that is confirmed to me daily as I try to live the pure, virtuous and inspired principles of this gospel and see their benefits and blessings in my life. I am Mormon because this gospel and the relationship I'm trying to develop with my Savior through this gospel make me a far better person than I ever could be without it. I am a Mormon because I have prayed about it and I know without a doubt of its truthfulness. This gospel gives me meaning, an eternal perspective, direction, purpose , strength, joy and hope. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is ordered, inspired and directed by God, it's principles and doctrine are true, everlasting and eternal, it's members are ordinary people striving to become extraordinary so that we can return to live with our loving Father in Heaven. This gospel changes my life for the better, everyday.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a full-time responsibility. I try to show my faith in how I spend my time, how I dress, how I behave and where I set my priorities. Living our faith means living a life of charity, which is the pure love of Christ. So living our faith requires living a life of service. My greatest joy comes when I have forgotten myself and gone to work in the service of Gods children.
