Hi I'm Jaden

I grew up in Utah. I enjoy poetry. I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I enjoy camping and going on night-walks. I enjoy learning and tend to be very curious with how things work. I love to tinker and enjoy philosophy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised around members of Christ's church and have had many of my questions answered through the holy scriptures, stories, and examples of the members in the this church I found around me. I've prayed often and and through faith, trust, and effort have come to know Christ in my daily life and in my religion. He has taught me much and has become a very close friend to me.

How I live my faith

I have worked in many different positions in my church including (but not limited to) being a counselor, youth ambassador, assistant to the bishop, as well as an organizer for youth events.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jaden
Official Church Answer President Gordon B. Hinckley, prior president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints made the following statement in 2005 about Joseph Smith: “We do not worship [Joseph Smith] the Prophet. We worship God our Eternal Father and the risen Lord Jesus Christ. But we acknowledge the Prophet; we proclaim him; we respect him; we reverence him as an instrument in the hands of the Almighty in restoring to the earth the ancient truths of the divine gospel, together with the priesthood through which the authority of God is exercised in the affairs of His Church and for the blessing of His people” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “Joseph Smith Jr.—Prophet of God, Mighty Servant,” Ensign, Dec 2005, 2–6). Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Jaden
Official Church Answer Family relationships can last forever—not just for this life. Just as some of life’s sweetest joys can come through family associations, the loss of a beloved family member can be a source of our deepest sorrows. Jesus Christ gave power to His disciples to seal families together forever when He said, “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19). Death does not need to be the end of our relationships with cherished loved ones. The Lord revealed to Joseph Smith that the “same sociality which exists among us here will exist among us there [in eternity], only it will be coupled with eternal glory” (Doctrine and Covenants 130:2). Family members who accept the Atonement of Jesus Christ and follow His example can be together forever through sacred ordinances performed in God’s holy temples. These ordinances seal a husband and wife together for all eternity and children to their parents as an eternal family. (See: “The Family: A Proclamation to the World”) Show more Show less
