Hi I'm Jayden

I was born in Utah but have lived in Virginia and North Carolina. Things are going pretty well in my life.

About Me

I have just been called to serve in the San Fernando Spanish speaking mission. I have had very little experience learning Spanish but look forward to learning it these next two years. I enjoy reading and helping others when the opportunity arise. I have a commanding older sister who happens to be an artist. We have one pet that has been around longer then I have. I enjoy the outdoors and love to be out in them as much as I can. I am also an eagle scout for the boy scouts of America as well which I waited till the last minute to get.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God lives and that his son Jesus Christ died for me. The teaching I have been taught about them while they might not be the easiest to live by they have only blessed my life for the better. I know without the gospel I would be a much different person than I am today. I happened to like who I am today and can not wait to see how much better I will be while I continue to progress in the faith. I know it will be great because if I become even half as good as the role models I have seen I will be so grateful.

How I live my faith

My faith is best shown through my actions in my everyday life. Its how I treat others, I treat them the way I want them to treat me which is only in the best way. I strive to help others when they need it. I always listen when anybody needs an ear especially when they just need anybody to talk to. I have lead meeting with my peers and elders around me and have taught lessons at the same time. I have always accepted a call to serve even when it would be inconvenient to do so at times and at the end of the day I have never regretted doing that.

What are Mormon temples used for?

Temples are the house of God. Its a place where we can go to get closer to God so that we may learn more about him and his work and also to receive personal revelation about our spiritual and earthly questions. Its also a place where we make sacred and sealing promises with God and to act in the way he wants us to do as his children. The temple is also a place where we act for those who have already passed away. Members can take the place of their ancestors who didn't have the chance to know about the gospel and making the saving promises they need to make to get closer to our Heavenly Father in the next life.
