Hi I'm Jade Kealii

I grew up in Utah and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have Primary Progressive MS. Before I got sick I worked as an Administrative Assistant, I loved to play the piano and sing was my passionate hobby. Today I love choral music, playing sudoku, and writing.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been around Mormon's all my life. I have a distant relative who knew Joseph Smith and I have relatives who came from England and were pioneers. The main reason I'm a Mormon is because I believe the gospel teachings are true. Among other things, I believe God is my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ is His son, my brother and my Savior, and the Holy Ghost testifies of the truth about God and Jesus Christ. I believe the only way to have Eternal Life and live with God again is to accept Jesus Christ as my Savior, be baptized into his church, receive sacred ordinances and make sacred covenants in the temple, and try to be like him. I want to have Eternal Life and live with God again and I believe the Mormon church teaches how we can do this truthfully.

How I live my faith

I've taught music to children on several occasions, been a teacher to 14 and 15 year old girls and been the president of the girls youth group ages 12 to 18. I love working with young people. The most interesting thing I've done is Organist for three years. I figured as long as the organ isn't chained shut when I come to church, and for as long as they need me I'll play.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jade Kealii
Mormons don't worship Joseph Smith, we worship God. Joseph Smith restored the gospel the way Jesus Christ originally taught it when he lived on the earth. Joseph Smith taught a lot of important things, things that the world no longer knew or didn't know correctly. Members of the church talk about him and what he taught because he was a great man and taught great things but we don't worship him. Show more Show less
