Hi I'm Jaxon Stellmon

Love me like Jesus does. I love baseball. I love to skateboard. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to skateboard, I use a lot of my free time checking out new skate parks and skateboarding. I love to draw and I am an artist. I am serving a 2 year LDS mission, I am serving in Anchorage, Alaska. I love to serve the lord. When i come home i want to get a degree in art and become a full time graphic designer. I currently own a skateboarding and extreme sports company that is growing rapidly that my brother will take care of while I'm gone so i can focus on my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know this is the right path and i can feel it in my heart. I am going out for 2 years to serve my lord on my mission and I have already received blessing just for accepting that role and doing this and taking 2 years out of my life just to serve my lord. I know that it will bring tremendous blessings to not only me but my family! I know that we may need that in a time like this when people are struggling in the church and struggling with other things with life in general. I cannot wait to see the impact on my family's lives with these blessings i know they will receive. I know that there are people in Alaska who have been waiting for me and that is exactly why I was called to serve there. I cant wait to get out there and help them! I love this church and i know its true and we have a living prophet today, Thomas S Monson.

How I live my faith

I go to home teach with my companion regularly, we love to visit our family's and just check on how they are doing. I have taught lessons in my class at church before. Also once a month i usually get to go to an elderly couple's home after church because they can only make it to sacrament and we get to share a short message with them and just get to know them better, I really enjoy that time. When i have friends struggling i remind them that our heavenly father is watching over them. I try to share little messages of the gospel as often as i can.

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

Jaxon Stellmon
Women do not hold the priesthood because it is not the Lords will, It is not part of the plan. Women have a very special place in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, they have their own organization called Relief Society it is to provide help to those in need, they have their own presidency and own board. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints the men hold the priesthood but when they are married they have a companion, their wife, the man neither walks ahead or behind his companion they are equal.
