Hi I'm Jeremy

I grew up in a small town in Florida. I played college baseball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 22. I love almost any sport, and love to play them. I played baseball for two years in college. I'm trying to get my AA degree right now. I was inactive for about five years, until about two years ago. Some members reached out to me and that was all it took for me to come back. I dealt with a lot of adversity in the time I was inactive and have put all that behind me. I'm thankful for the trials I went through, they've made me stronger and made my faith and testimony stronger. Regaining my faith has made the last two years of my life the happiest and the most fun of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I know that the Church is true. I know the Book of Mormon is true. I know Joseph Smith was a great man and a true Prophet. I've seen the way that Christ has changed my life, and how I've become a better person. I'm thankful that Christ died for us, so that we have the ability to repent for our mistakes. I also know that Thomas S. Monson is a living Prophet. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. Every Thursday I attend Institute, where we study the Scriptures and teachings of the Prophets. I am a leader for the Priesthood. I help teach men, age 18-30. I help plan events when my help is needed. I keep my faith by doing my best to avoid temptations. I help myself do that by hanging out with other members who are great influences.
