Hi I'm Jared

I'm a swimmer, I am a musician, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in California, I am currently living in Louisiana. I am getting ready to go to school in the near future. I love the water and did swim team and water polo while I was in high school. Music has also been a big part of my life I play Trumpet and Bass Guitar. I hope to do something with that in the future. I just love how inspiring music is how it touches people and makes differences in their lives. I am a fun loving guy and love to spend time with friends wether its watching movies going out and just being out side doing something fun I am there.

Why I am a Mormon

Early on in my life I was looking for happiness. I was blessed to have parents who where members of the church. Who taught me the gospel, I didnt really understand or fully live it till I was 16. Before I just kinda went with the flow did what my friends did thinking that thats how I would find happiness. I never found it just doing what people deemed cool or normal. All things that made me truly happy in life happened at the church or at church activities and time with my family. It finally dawned on me that I could have this happiness all the time I just knew I had to make the church a part of my life. Thats when I knew that it wasnt just something optional. If I wanted to have that happiness I needed to stop going through the motions and live it. As I did with the help of my family I felt happy and peaceful inside. As I continued to live it I came to realize what Gods plan for us really means and that we really do have the oppourtunity to have joy in this life. I learned how we can axcess the Atonement of Christ and repent of whatever sins we have commited and recieve forgiveness. Its something so special to me to know of these things. I know they are true cause I prayed and asked God if this church is true and if the Book of Mormon is true and the Holy Ghost witnessed unto me the truthfulness of them. I am a Mormon because the Spirit has spoken peace and truth to my soul and I cannot deny it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to render service to others. I am currently out on a mission in the south. I try every day to do what the Savior would and be a helping hand to those in need. I am not a perfect person though but I know as I continue to pray and study the scriptures that the lord will make my weaknesses strong. I try to give my whole self to the Lord I try my best to serve the people of the south as he would.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Jared
By the power of the holy ghost, Its really simple you dont have to read every book that speaks good or bad about it till you make your decision. Nor do you have to research every last detail about it. Simply put it to the test read and pray about the Book of Mormon and ask if its true with an open heart and an open mind. This is how you can come to know if its true. Moroni 10:3-5, God reveals truth to us through his holy spirit. Thats how we can know Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jared
No, This is not the church of Joseph Smith Nor is it the church of Mormon or some other man. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the real name, and that his whom we worship. Our Father in Heaven and his Son our Savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
