Hi I'm Jaden

Just graduated school and am now preparing to embark on my mission to Fresno CA. Love this gospel and love saying I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jaden and I just turned 18. I have been born and raised in Utah and have been blessed to grow up in a place where the gospel is so strong. I recently graduated from high school as the top male in my class and as the Student Body President. I loved being able to lead and direct my school and I love serving my friends and my community. I've been in choir programs, multiple state competitions for culinary arts and have even been an Ambassador for my city. I love staying busy and I love being involved. Furthermore, I love leading and being the best example I can be. Now that school and all of that has concluded I am now preparing to serve a full time mission in California. I am so excited to be able to serve as a missionary and as a representative of Christ. I will leave this November and I can't wait for this next adventure of my life! Following my mission I look forward to attending college and going into the Culinary Arts field and be trained on how to become a professional chef.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was growing up I was simply a member due to the fact that both my parents were not to mention my entire family. It has always been a way of life. However, throughout my own experiences I have been able to learn and witness how remarkable this gospel truly is and how amazing it is to be a Mormon. I have been able to learn of the truthfulness of this church and simply learned that this church is true. Through this gospel I have been blessed in ways that I wouldn't have been without this church. Additionally, I have a love, respect and admiration for our Savior and for the gift of the atonement. I am a Mormon because I know that everything this gospel teaches is true. I know it in every part of my being, I live it in everything that I do and lastly, I love it. This gospel is incredible and the growth of it is inspired. To be part of everything this gospel and everything it offers is a blessing not just to me but to everyone within this church. The temples, the churches, the missionary work, and the church is all ordained of God and I couldn't imagine my life being the same without it. I am a Mormon simply because I know of the surety of this gospel. It is true and whoever prays unto our Savior with an open heart and mind will be able to know of this truth as well.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life I have been blessed to always be close to this Church and its teachings. I have been lucky to involve myself with amazing family members and friends who always encourage me to be the best me and make the best decisions I can pertaining to this gospel. Through those decisions I have been able to serve in multiple presidency callings in my ward and have been able to serve as a member on our stakes youth council. Additionally, I have been able to have the opportunity to be a seminary graduate and to assist with many home teaching assignments. Another opportunity that I have had was to be a missionary early on in my life before my actual mission. I have been able to with the Lords help, help bring my friend into this gospel and to baptize her into this church. She has had a hard life style and has often showed interest to this church and through missionaries in our area, patience, love, support and the help of our Heavenly Father, all the pieces came together and she was able to be baptized in March of 2015. Through that experience alone, I have been able to strengthen my testimony of this gospel and I learned that everyone is a missionary and that is how I have learned to best live my faith. To simply be a missionary with or without a name tag.
