Hi I'm Jordan

surprise people! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the Southbay of L.A., Redondo Beach to be exact. I love my family, friends, my music, and my Lakers! I currently reside in Pennsylvania where I am serving a two year Mormon mission for the Lord. I come from a place where there are very few members of the church, and where my beliefs were constantly being challenged, and often attacked. Growing up Mormon in those parts wasnt always the easiest thing to do, and though I have fallen short of a perfect example many times, I've never given up. I love the city! I love Hollywood, downtown L.A., the great Staples Center, Venice Beach and of course beautiful Santa Monica. I love where I'm from but I refuse to become a product of my inviornment. I hope to become a disciple of Christ, and an example of the believers.  

Why I am a Mormon

Im "Mormon" because I love the Lord, bottom line. I want to follow Him. Following him makes me happier than anything else, and this is where He has lead me. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the pure, unchanged Gospel of Jesus Christ, as taught by Christ himself. The guessing games are over, we dont have to settle for "close to the truth". The Lord has restored the fullness of His doctrines and authority through His prophet, Joseph Smith, in these last days. The Book of Mormon is the evidence of this powerful reality. All you have to do is read from it and ask God if it is from Him. He will answer.

How I live my faith

I do my best to please my Father in Heaven. I know that God does love all of us and desires our happiness, as a perfect father would. I try to live my life the way he wants me to, and when I do the Gospel of Jesus Christ becomes very real. Im not perfect, or even close to it. I struggle with my own temptations and weaknesses, but I am trying to be better everyday.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

In studying the Bible I've come to understand that Jesus Christ established a church, or an organization during his earthly ministry. We can read about this in Ephesians. Christ established "one faith", not thousands. Today we have thousands of different Christian denominations, all teaching different doctrines about the same Christ. It can be very confusing for truth seekers, especially when the Bible tells us that, “God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” So where is Christs church today? If God called prophets all throughout biblical times, and He "is the same yesterday and today and forever," then where are His holy prophets today? God has called a prophet for us in these last days! He has restored that SAME church we read about in the New Testament, through His prophet, Joseph Smith. This Church was started by Christ, and He is the founder of our faith.    Show more Show less
