Hi I'm Jade

I'm a wife. I'm a soon to be mommy! I'm a student. I'm happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I'm Jade. I am a native Texan living in New Jersey with my husband. I am a college student pursuing a degree in English. I would love to coach CrossFit kids and write children's books about health and fitness but ultimately, I hope to be a full-time mom. I love playing sports (mainly soccer!), board games, card games, singing, watching movies, cooking, learning and spending time with my husband and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints so I have been a member my entire life. However, I have come to know for myself through prayer, scripture study and following commandments that this is the church I want to belong to. I know that I am a daughter of God. We are all His children. I know that Jesus Christ is my brother, Savior and friend and that He suffered and died for my sins. Because of this, I do not have to be defined by my past or my mistakes. I can progress and become better every day! I know that this church teaches the same doctrine that was on the earth when Jesus Christ was teaching. I know that it was restored to us by a true prophet, Joseph Smith. We are guided today by a living prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and apostles. I know that I am important. I have talents and gifts from God that help me to share His message to others. I know that families can be together, not just in this life, but after this life as well. When we follow God's commandments, we can have lasting joy. We are all living this life to gain knowledge and experience and will be able to live with Him again!

How I live my faith

My husband and I have moved several times for school and job opportunities but always find ways to get involved in the community! At church, I have been able to share my opinions and beliefs with members of the congregation and to teach Sunday School classes. I am also blessed with the opportunity to visit other women from church and help them with anything they need! I often teach with the missionaries (the men or women with the name tags) and meet people who are interested in learning more! Outside of church activities, I try live my faith in all I do! To me, Christ's message is one of love. I try to share His love with everyone I meet!
