Hi I'm Jaden

I grew up in Utah. I came to serve an LDS mission in Chile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I ran XC and track in high school. I was a swimmer as well. I love to laugh, serve, and play the piano. I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe this to be the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I seek to follow Jesus Christ because of the irreplaceable role that he has played and currently plays in my life. I am driven follow Jesus Christ because of his perfect life example he has set and because of his infinite love for all men. I have experienced what the loving hand of friendship, fellowship, and family can do to change the soul to good. I am grateful for this. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to be the only true and living church upon the face of the whole Earth because of the answer that I have undoubtedly received by the Holy Ghost. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he restored the true of gospel of Jesus Christ and ushered in the dispensation of the fullness of times. I know that the blessings of the temple are forever and that as I keep my covenants that I have made with my Savior Jesus Christ that I may return to live with him someday in peace and rest. I bear this testimony humbly and thankfully in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Jaden
Jesus Christ's atonement is his merciful miracle for humanity. Without the atonement of Jesus Christ we would have no hope. We would continually drift further and further away from God. However, there WAS an atonement made, and a way back to our loving Heavenly Father is prepared. That pathway is Jesus Christ as he himself states in John 14:6, "...I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Because of Jesus Christ, we have the joyous opportunity to repent of our sins (for it is surely the sin that we despise and not repentance), live lives of joy, peace, and with lasting happiness, and return to live with our Heavenly Father once again. It was necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice his life for us because that was the only way by which the ends of the law could be answered. In order for our debt of sin to be paid we need a mediator to pay the debt that we can not pay. Jesus Christ is that mediator and because of him we have the opportunity and privilege to live our lives in such a way as to return to and dwell with our Father in Heaven in peace and happiness forever. We show our gratitude to our Savior Jesus Christ for what he did by living lives of gratitude and service, and by keeping the covenants that we have made with him in all diligence and faith.
