Hi I'm Jaeden Schafer

I sailed around the South Pacific for one year with my family of 9. I surf. I cliff jump. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I went to school at BYU Hawaii before making the choice to serve a 2 year mission. Last year I sailed around the South pacific islands with my family of 9 on a 45 foot catamaran, it was crazy fun. We got interviewed by news papers and TV asking why we did it, ultimately it came down to us loving our family and wanting to build stronger connections to each other. I feel like my family is one of the most important things in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because after studying the life of Christ and the pattern he set when he was on Earth I know that this church follows his actions completely.

How I live my faith

I have chosen to serve the Lord by volunteering as a missionary in the Paris, France mission. I decided to do this so I can tell more people that God truly loves them and that they have a special role on this earth.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Jaeden Schafer
In my life I know I am the happiest when I set a time aside each day to read my scriptures, this is a blessing for me. Whether I read one verse or a chapter the fact that I am reading God's word to man brings me peace. Often when I have a struggle in life with questions or trials I pray to God for answers, then I sit down someplace quiet and read. Almost always immediately after starting to read my scriptures, I find verses and concepts that answer my questions and give me comfort. I love the scriptures because they bless me with peace, answers and help me feel closer to God. Show more Show less
