Hi I'm Jeron

I am an aspiring singer/songwriter, and a thinker who likes to party. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I reign from the suburbs of Portland, Oregon- home of the Trail Blazers! My family is very important to me, I have loving parents, two sisters, and a little brother. I love sports, especially basketball and football. I am a determined volleyball, dodgeball, and kickball champ. I love to party, camp, wakeboard, ski, cliff jump, and being dumb. I have a strong passion for music, I hold a lot of respect for artists who can create sound that changes the outlook of life in a person. I hope one day to accomplish that. I am a huge fan of making movies and jammin' on the guitar. I love trying to experience new things, like eating something new- But that doesn't happen as much as I want. I find it exhilarating trying something that nobody dares to try. I can easily come off as a showoff. I served a mission a two year service mission in Arizona. I am going to college at a church owned school in Idaho, and I have no clue what I want to do. All i know is life is short, so go big, or go home!

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in the church I never really made it a priority to gain a testimony. I would just go through the motions, whether it was going to church, seminary, young life...I just did it becuase my parents wanted me to. During High School I had friends who didn't share the same faith as I did, and they would go out of their way to try to prove what I was raised to believe my whole life false...I couldn't fight it, I had no idea what to believe. It was during that time that I actually gave it all some thought, I remember going to my father, asking questions, my friends at church, but none of it really sufficed me in my search. I was lost in a lot of doubt, and mixed feelings. It wasn't until I was attending college, a year later, I finally came to the conclusion, on my own, that I needed to read the Book of Mormon and find out for myself if this really is the path I needed to take in my life. It took much dilligence and faith on my part, I remember the effort I made on a daily basis to understand the words...It felt completely foreign to me, even growing up in the church, but the feeling as if someone was lightly pushing me, kept me going, day after day. Eventually the task that once seemed daunting, became much more enlightning, and easier. I wanted to know more, and more until one day my answer came...It wasnt any day out of the norm, I was just reading in my car during my lunch break at work. I remember the power and influence the Holy Ghost had on me. I needed to repent! I knew that the Holy Ghost truely did manifest itself unto me that day and I cannot deny it. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and I know that this is Gods one true church on the earth, restored through a true prophet. A testimony was born that day, one that saved my life, and continues on today. The Book of Mormon holds much power, it can change your life, it changed mine, and through my conversion, I now strive to save the lives of others as I share it with all of my heart.

How I live my faith

I believe that Jesus Christ was the most perfect example to how I should live my life. The way I see it, is we are all brothers and sisters, sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. We are all here for one purpose, so it's our job to extend that helping hand, and serve! Of course I am not perfect, but that doesn't mean I can't try...I strive to live the second greatest commandment, and that is "Love one another."  I believe that if you find something good in life, you should share it. I have found something in my life, that changed it for the better.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

We believe that we are here on this earth to prepare ourselves to meet God. God is our loving Heavenly Father who wants us to be happy. He has prepared a way for us to experience the most joy you can possibly have in this life. That is through his everlasting gospel. Show more Show less
