Hi I'm Jared Vogl

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21, Married and have a 6 Month old son. I have been a member of the Church my whole life. It has been a great blessing to me and my family both! I love playing sports especially basketball and I also thoroughly enjoy the outdoors. I am pursuing a career in graphic design and love to draw. My family and I were recently sealed for time and all eternity in the Temple and we are very excited to share our story with anyone.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church my whole life, but I did not fully understand nor truly believe it until about the time I graduated high school and found who I was and what I was looking for in life. My life is just not complete without the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I am so grateful for those who kept me motivated to follow its standards while I was into some things I should not have been. It is so worth it to follow the teachings of our Prophets and leaders! I have not always followed them and it really does make a huge difference in my life when I do follow their guidance and instruction. I can honestly testify that I know that this church and its teachings are true! I know with all my heart that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of God and that he did see Jesus Christ as well as our Heavenly Father in the Sacred Grove! I am so eternally thankful for my Savior Jesus Christ and the Atoning Sacrifice He made on our behalf! I want anyone and everyone to know that I do know that families are forever and that I am so very blessed to have the one that I do! They are amazing and I am so glad to be apart of them forever! I know that President Monson leads and guides us in the correct ways of these last days and that he is a remarkable man who is very close to the Lord! I believe in the power of the Priesthood and of its restoration in these the last days! I have had many blessings because of its magnificent power and I know it to be that of our Heavenly Fathers! I do not know where I would be in life if it were not for the knowledge of this gospel!

How I live my faith

I had a position as a young mens leader in my ward for a couple months but I was released from it because of military obligations. I currently am deployed and participate in church as much as possible! It has been a steady guide for me and my family and is where we find most of our joy together!
