Hi I'm Jayden

I grew up in Utah. I have been called to serve as a missionary in the California, Arcadia mission, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I like to play soccer and I love to swim. I was recently called as a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I will be serving in the California, Arcadia Spanish speaking mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I was adopted into an LDS family. Because of this, I was raised as a Mormon. Before my first year of high school, I began to study the Book of Mormon so I could know for myself that the church is true. Through much study and prayer, my testimony became increased and I learned that the church is true. I choose to follow the gospel because I love the teachings of the church, and I have learned that living the gospel provides TRUE happiness.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is an everyday practice. By studying the Book of Mormon, praying daily, and attending church, my testimony strengthens.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Missionary service is voluntary. However, all "worthy" young men are encouraged to serve a mission. As a senior in high school, I was trying to choose whether to serve a mission after graduating, or to go to a year of college on a swimming scholarship. I prayed to know what Heavenly Father wanted me to do. Each time I began to think about going to college thoughts of serving a mission would fill my mind. One day, I realized that I had received an answer to my prayer to serve a mission. Show more Show less
