Hi I'm Jaden

I grew up in American Fork. Im a ballroom dancer and I play the piano. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving an LDS Mission in Houston, Texas. I have overcome my stutter with the help of the Almighty God! I know that families are forever. When I get home, I'll start college and begin pursuing my career. I also look forward to getting married some time. I'm a dancer. I enjoy doing Ballroom, Hip-hop and break-dance as a hobby. Listen to me play the piano. I am a Latter-day saint and am committed to living my faith.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon. I believe this is the only true church in the world. I have studied the Bible and other scriptures and have come to know this is the TRUE church of Jesus Christ. It is the church God wants me to be in. I have come to know that even with all the commandments or "rules" we are given in this church, that by following them has brought me the most happiness- even I don't understand all of them completely. When we come to be sincere with God, and have a broken heart, He can make us more than we ever could have been.

How I live my faith

I have come to know this church is true through trial and error. The conditioning process of life has helped me realize the love God has for me- and that happiness comes as we are obedient to God's commandments and as we diligently seek for it. I'm no longer afraid to speak my mind. The truth has made me strong. I live my faith to the best of my abilities because I know there is more peace and strength from living the way God wants me to live than by any other faith. I absolutely uphold virtue, and want nothing less. I enjoy every opportunity I get to serve this Church. Through the trials in my life I have come to build my foundation on Jesus Christ. I know that He lives. I am willing to follow Him as long as I live. With God, we can do ALL THINGS!!

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

It is true! Because God loves all of His children equally, He gives them all an equal opportunity to learn about and accept His Gospel. The Bible teaches us how God so loved the world, that he gave His only Begotten Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that through Him, we might be saved. Christ died so all us to have free will or agency, and to become like He is. He is the firstfruits of the resurrection. Because of His perfection, we can also be made perfect. The resurrection is the reuniting of the body and spirit, never to be separated again. We become immortal- and it is a free gift from God to every person born on earth. I testify that we can not only live forever, but live together forever in happiness with our Father in Heaven. I know that because Christ died, we can live again. 1 Cor. 15:22, 1 Peter 3:18-20, 2 Nephi 9:14-15. Show more Show less
