Hi I'm Jared
I love skateboarding, and I'm a Team Manager. I spent a lot of time skating growing up and I became a sponsored skater for a few different companies. I served a mission in New York and I grew to love the City and Long Island.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I know He has a plan for me. I know that He paid the price for my sins and has made my salvation possible. Faith is something that I continue to work on every day. I love to read the Bible and the Book of Mormon, I know that the scriptures contain the Word of God. The prophecies and the revelations contained in the scriptures are true and I love to spend time learning about them. Attending church is also a great way for me to find a closer connection to my Savior.
Why/How do you share the gospel with your friends?
I like to talk about life with my friends, and that usually involves my faith and personal beliefs. The Gospel is an everyday part of my life. And it's certainly not a part of my life of which I'm ashamed. It just comes out in conversation. Sometimes I send messages back and forth with friends of other faiths and we discuss the scriptures and our faith with each other. It's very enjoyable for me and some have asked me to continue sending messages. haha The problem is I like the conversation! I like to throw ideas back and forth. Sometimes I don't get around to it, but it's one thing I really enjoy and learn from.
How I live my faith
I am currently serving as a leader in home teaching at the Singles Ward. It's a great experience to be a home teacher and to visit others in the ward, share uplifting experiences, messages, and just talk about life in general. Being involved this way has helped me to learn a lot about life. Sometimes it's difficult to get it done, but once you do it's worth it. I know this is the way God wants me to live and I can learn a lot from these experiences.
