Hi I'm Jared

I'm a missionary, country singer, love the outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Before my mission I loved to sing country music and I plan to persue a career in country music and entertainment after I return home in March of 2012. I love to ride horses, hunt (espically with my dogs), fish and camp, and just be outside! Some of my plans are to go to recording school, and be married in the temple some day and have a family of my own!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church, and I have always know that it was good and right to follow it. I was baptized when I was 8 years old because I wanted to follow Jesus. When I was 14 years old I gained a sure knowlage that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God that was called to restore Jesus Christ's true church back on the Earth and that The Book of Mormon, like the Bible is a testimony of Jesus Christ. Also that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Jesus's chuch and by following it's teachings I would be doing the same thing I did when I was 8 years old: following Jesus! The way I came to know these things were true was by praying and asking God and being sincer as I prayed. 14 year olds can be sincer you know!!!haha Also I didnt just learn about it, but I learned it and lived it and because of that God has answered my prayers and I know this is Jesus Christ's church. I also know that everyone can come to that same knowlage by doing the same things; Pray, read(The Book of Mormon, doesnt have to be all of it to know it's true. It's like a pizza, you dont need to eat the whole thing to know it taste's great, you just have to have a bite!), and try it(go see what's at the LDS church, find one near you and vist it-also sit down and talk with LDS missionaries), and during all that pray, pray, pray for an answer and God will help you know it's true!!

How I live my faith

I am giving up 2 years away from my family, friends, music career, and many other things that I love for the God that I love even more, so that I can share His son, Jesus Christ's Gospel with the people of Soutern Utah. I know with out a shadow of a doubt that He will bless me for it! So this is my mission!

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Think about the face of a little child when they smile or a baby when it's first born! Look at the beauty of the Earth! Think about how we go through the trials that we face on this Earth and we still keep living! Think about the peace you sometimes feel at a friend or family members funeral, that all will be ok! There is a God and He loves all of us! The one source that tells me more than any other though, is God Himself! Pray to Him and ask Him if He is there...He'll tell ya! I PROMISE!!!!
