Hi I'm Jared

I'm a husband, father, law student, and basketball lover. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second of five children and grew up all over the U.S. (California, Utah, Texas, Pennsylvania). I served a mission in Sweden and absolutely love Scandinavia. I also majored in Middle East Studies/Arabic in college, so I love the Middle East. I have a beautiful wife and an amazing son, and I am currently a first-year law student. I love reading, having fun, and playing sports (especially basketball).

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of the Church, but there is one main reason I have continued to stay active as an adult: living according to the gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me peace and happiness, no matter what has happened in my life. Life has not always been easy, but I have always known why I'm here and what I can become. Being able to have an eternal perspective while facing the daily grind of life is, in my opinion, one of the greatest blessings of being a member of the Church.

How I live my faith

Right now my primary roles are to love and serve my wife and son as well as love and serve a few specific members of our congregation that I have been asked to watch out for and help out.
