Hi I'm Jade Wilkins

I am serving a mission in California, I have seven younger siblings, and I love sports and horses. I'm a Mormon and I love it.

About Me

I am the oldest child in a family of eight children and I love all my family. I enjoy basketball, cross country, ping pong, racquetball, and basically all other sports. I also enjoy riding horses. I am currently serving in the San Jose California mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I have never been a member of another church, but I have felt the Holy Ghost confirm to me that this is the true church of God on the earth today. The more I learn about the gospel and the plan of salvation the more everything makes sense and the Spirit is able to continue to remind me that this church is where I need to be. The gospel has blessed me so much in both my personal and family life. The knowledge that I have gained through the church has helped me learn to seek guidance from God, and as I strive to do what He would have me do, I have felt confirmation that I am where I should be, and doing many good things, which has been very reassuring. I owe much if not all of the joy and happiness that has come into my life to the gospel of Jesus Christ, and that is why I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have had several callings in the church including leadership positions in young men's groups, as well as pianist and now as a teacher for children ages 8-12. Out of church I have participated in home teaching and try to live in a way that I can be an example to those around me. My family and I are the only LDS students at my school but I still work to follow the council of prophets on how to live like the Savior. Although I am far from perfect I know I have been blessed as I do this.
