Hi I'm Jordan
I love the Savior Jesus Christ and His teachings. I'm a Mormon.
I'm a new father pursuing a PhD in Information Systems. I'm always trying to learn more about the world. I'm also a musician, a piano and guitar player. As you might have guessed, learning is key in my life. Thus I'm always going through new changes and challenges as I learn more about the world, business, the arts, and myself. Most importantly, I also love learning more about Jesus Christ and His plan for us. My family and I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the happiness that it brings to our lives. I love how the teachings of the Savior can help me no matter where I am in life - in school, at work, or with my family.
Why I am a Mormon
Being LDS makes me happy. Learning the teachings of the Church, sharing them with others, reading the scriptures, and praying to God about things I know because of being a member -- these are things that all bring peace to my heart. The teachings of the Church have helped me to become more like the person I want to be. I have considered carefully the teachings of the Church and the teachings of other faiths, and I feel the Lord's Spirit teaching me that there is no better place for me. While the people of the Church are not perfect and there are many people with much criticism of our faith, there is much more good to be found if you open your heart. I cannot deny what I know to be true. The teachings and blessings of the Gospel are true. I know they are.
How I live my faith
One great thing about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the opportunity to work with and serve other people with the same values. Each week, members of the Church meet together in a congregation, and this is a great opportunity to meet new people and to be strengthened by them. Even better is the opportunity to serve others. I like taking part in the service activities that happen in the Church, and taking advantage of opportunities to help the poor and needy. The Church has taught me to give freely of my time and resources to help those less fortunate than myself.
