Hi I'm Jeremy

I'm in the National Guard serving as a Combat Medic. And you guessed it, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Living in southern Utah, I have access to some of the best rock climbing year round. I love to rock climb, hike, bike, and play sports such as volleyball and Ultimate Frisbee. I am the father of a totally awesome 3 year old, and I am pushing for a degree in medicine to hopefully one day work in an Emergency Room.

Why I am a Mormon

There is but one author of all scripture and of all truth. So when I want to know whether someone speaks in accordance with Him, I seek Him in prayer. Because I know He will answer me. And I have received from Him, via the Holy Ghost, the knowledge of the truth of His gospel which He has established via His Prophets in these latter days. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is His church. This I know to be true because He has confirmed it to me. As he will for anyone wanting to know, who ask in faith.

How I live my faith

One of my most favorite things about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the Institute Program, i.e. seminary, religious courses. While attending college, it is such a relief when I am able to attend a class on the scriptures between my other college courses. It has always been a strength for me to involve the Lord in my life while I am doing my normal studies.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

The end of all illicit behavior will start within the home. When we as a people begin to raise the youth with correct principles and standards, will we then find the livelihood of pornography on its knees with little to no power over the future generations. Show more Show less

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

The difference between the Book of Mormon is simply timeline and Geography. The Bible took place in the middle east, from several thousands years B.C. to less than one hundred years A.D. While the Book of Mormon took place in the America's, between 600 B.C. and 400 A.D. Within the pages of both books, you will find harmony in regards to the principles of the gospel. The Book of Mormon was delivered into the hands of Joseph Smith by the power of God, to help teach the world of the kindness and mercy the Lord has had for all of his children, regardless of where they lived in times past. Just as Moses had the Ten Commandments delivered unto him, did the Lord direct Joseph Smith to the records of the ancient Americans. Show more Show less

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

Our attitude towards homosexuals is no different then our attitude towards any individual with any type of tendencies. Everyone will find themselves faced with one tendency or another. Many face the tendency to anger quickly. Others find it difficult to accept people of different race, faith, or origin. Some struggle with controlling their desires for those of the opposite gender, while some struggle with controlling their desires for those of the same gender. Ether 12:27 "And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them." Homosexuality is a struggle, and through the Lord can that burden be lightened. Just like it is important for us to remove anger from our lives and control our passions and appetites, it is important for us to control all forms of tendencies that are not of God.
