Hi I'm Jade Matthews

Born and raised in Idaho to an amazing family. I love to play sports and the guitar, drums, or the piano. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised by a loving family in a small farm town in Idaho. Family is everything to me. Some things I like to do are basketball and golf, or any sport really. I also love to ride dirtbikes with my brother and cousins through the mountains, or on the track we have made. I always have to be doing something, I can hardly ever sit still. I love taking scrap parts of metal or wood and see what I can build out of it. I also like to play the guitar, drums, and piano. Right now, I am serving as a full time missionary in the Washington, Vancouver Mission. I will be serving until Nov. 2016. After my mission, I plan on getting my pilots license and starting my career, along with getting Married, and having a family of my own!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised into the church. Like most others, I relied on the testimonies of my parents until I chose to gain my own testimony and ask my Heavenly Father if all of these teachings were true. I have now had too many experiences in my life to where I know with all my heart that I do have a Father in Heaven and a Savior and Redeemer who truly love me. I know that families can be sealed for all eternity and am truly greatful to be sealed to my family. I am greatful for the knowledge that I have that I will again see family members as well as friends who have passed on from this life. I love this gospel and truly want to share it with the world so that everyone can experience the same peace, comfort, and happiness that it brings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in my callings in the church. I have served as president of the Deacons (A group of youth ages 12-13), and teachers quorums (A group of youth ages 14-15). I have also served as a 1st counselor in the priests quorum (A group of youth ages 16-17). In high school I served as one of the members on the seminary council. Now I am currently serving as a full time missionary and loving every minute of it! I have been called to serve in the Washington, Vancouver Mission.
