Hi I'm Jordan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well I grew up in Ventura California, then moved to the San Bernardino mountains when I was about 9, and went all the way through high school up there and left to go on a fulltime Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for two years in Arizona. I have been going to the church all my life I was born into it. I love it. It has made me who I am today...well the Savior has made me who I am today, but I know that I wouldn't have learned who he truly was in any other church because this is his church, this is his Gospel. Other than that I love Sports and cars and movies. I actually hope to be an actor, but if that doesn't work out I want to be a Firfighter Paramedic or a Cop. I just finished school to be an EMT and hope to find a job soon. I like music, and am happily married.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I was born into the church so I didn't really have a reason except that i was told to go, that was until I went to General conference when I was 16. Up until this time iI was really just going through the motions, trying to find out what was so special about this Church. When I saw the prophet walk into that conference building If elt something that I never felt before this feeling was warm, a really calm assurance, a witness of this mans calling. I knew that he was called of God to be the Prophet of the World, not just the church. I felt the spirit tell me "this is the church of Christ." From that moment on I knew this was the true church. I started reading the Book of Mormon, and again I knew that the book is true and that Joseph Smith was a Prophet, and most importantly that Jesus was my Savior that he sacraficed himself for me. Not one person can take this testimony, this truth I have learned from me, because the witness that was given to me of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, and of the divinity of Christ was given to me by God. The best part about it is that everyone can know if they want to, if it's true all they have to do is ask, with a sincere heart and real intent, with faith in Christ. I know God loves me and I know that Christ is my savior. I know that Joseph Smith was the instrument that Heavenly Father used to restore his church on the earth, the same as it was when Christ established it when he came to the earth, and I know because of that restoration we have living apostles and a living prophet on the earth today!

How I live my faith

I do my very best to serve in my callings that I have of being a Home Teacher and a Primary teacher (teaching younger kids about the gospel). I also try my best to live Christs teachings, and keep his commandments and try every day to become a better disciple and a better person.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Reading these keep me focused on whats truly important in life. They teach me what God wants me to do and how to do those things he wants me to do. They give me answers to questions about life after death. How important family is, and how to live with God again. Show more Show less
