Hi I'm Jourdan

I love the outdoors: hunting, fishing, camping, longboarding, its all good. And of course... Sports.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Like I said, I love the outdoors. Anything to do with being outside is usually my style. I go deer hunting each year, and my dad, sister, uncle, grandpa, and I go pheasant hunting multiple times a year. I can't get enough of the mountains in good old Utah. They are so amazing, I could spend all day in the mountains. Skiing is a blast. I love spending time with my friends, they are the best. We always have fun together and we are there for each other. There isn't a time when we're togehter that we don't laugh our heads off. We play basketball whenever we can, and we also longboard. Its my passion. I am serving a full-time mission for the Mormon church right now in the Florida Tallahassee Mission. I love it! My family is the number one thing in my life though. I have one younger sister and my mom and dad. We are very close. They make my life complete. Oh... and of course I love the UTES!

Why I am a Mormon

I have a special testimony of the Book of Mormon and the power that comes from reading it. That is why I am a Mormon, is because I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It testifies with the Bible of Jesus Christ. I am happiest and enjoy life most when I am living in harmony with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It can be hard at times and things of the world may seem more fun or appealing, but the only way to have true happiness is to live righteously. I love this Gospel, there is nothing about it that isn't good. It's all great! I love the support that members of this church give oneanother. We are all here together so we might as well help each other while we're here, and that is exactly what Mormons do, we help. I couldn't imagine my life without the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Well right now I am living my faith by serving a 2 year mission for this Church in the Florida Tallahassee Mission. This is the most I have ever done for the Church. But before leaving on my mission my dad and I had a few families in our ward who we were assigned to visit monthly. We became very close to these families, and we grew closer together as father and son than by doing anything else. We were able to see these families come closer together as well because they were able to more fully center their lives around the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But right now I am knocking on doors each day and trying to do my best to find those who have been prepared to receive the message of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and I'm loving every day of it. I also try my best to uplift and make the people I meet each day smile.

What is the Book of Mormon?

It is a record of the people that lived in the America's around the time that Jesus Christ lived. It is about a people who left from Jerusalem, and came to the America's. It involves their dealings with prophets and what happened to them when they obeyed and when they didn't obey the men that were called by God to lead the people. It teaches us the correct form of baptism. The Book of Mormon teaches us so simply and beautifully the plan the God has for us. It contains the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We can draw closer to God by abiding by the teachings of the Book of Mormon than by any other book. That is a promise from God. I have come to know this for myself, and you can as well, because the invitation to read the Book of Mormon is extended to everyone. The Book of Mormon provides hope. Show more Show less
