Hi I'm Jeremiah

I'm the oldest of twelve children. I build Internet companies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married since 2003 and have two beautiful sons. I graduated from college with a Bachelor's degree in English and Theater. I love good literature and I love to write. I'm trying to become an active cyclist, partly for health reasons and partly to have a reason to stand up from my computer several times a week and do something active. I also love chess and wish I had more time to play with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Peace really is the motivator for me. I'd rather have peace in life than any other thing. It's pretty simple, but the more attention I pay to devotion, the more peace I find. The greatest peace I've found comes from working to follow God's plan at every opportunity.

How I live my faith

My family and I have just moved to a small, rural community (a big change for a city boy like me) and we're working to get to know the people around us. We want to be good neighbors. My wife has jumped right in and made dozens of friends at church already.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Jeremiah
My first experience with Mormon temples came as a child. I went with my parents for a special ceremony. We dressed all in white and were led to a beautiful room with mirrors on each side of an altar. When you looked into them, it was like you could see forever. There was a man there who explained that, in temples, our family could become a forever family - that my parents would be married for eternity and that the relationship between me and them would never be broken. As he spoke, I knew he was telling the truth. We knelt, holding hands across the altar, and he said a sort of a prayer. When we left the room, we were a different family than when we entered it. Now I know that nothing, not even death, will be able to seperate us. Show more Show less
