Hi I'm Jared

I'm a Student,a Father, a Husband, a Computer Tech, and a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student, Father, Husband, studing to be a Software Engineer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon and grew up in the faith. Like all teenagers however I went through a few tough times. Those times are what really solidified my reasons to be a Mormon. I came to understand my Savior and what He wants from me in this life. I grew and learned that there are things in this life more precious then the "stuff" life has to offer.

How I live my faith

I try and live my faith were it matters the most at Home. My kids see me all the time and see who i am better than most others. It is for them and my wife that i truely try to live my religion. Sure i have things that i do out side of my home. I help lead a group of Men in the church and yes it is rewarding. However to me the most important part of my faith is being able to share it with my wife and children.

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

Jared
Durring the Saviors life on this earth he called 12 men to be his apostles. Shortly after the death of the Savior the 12 apostles were down to 11 after the death of Judas. Peter then called another man to fill the place and make the group 12 again. Later in the New Testament Paul is called as a member of the 12 again to fill a void. With this pattern estabilshed we can see that the Lord intended his church to have and be lead by the 12 apostles. Even after the death of our Savior the 12 played important roles in helping and teaching the people. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Jared
Faith is a wonderful thing. Faith is the hope of things that are true which are unseen. Faith in God is more than just a belief that God exists. It is more than hoping there is a God. Faith in God is trusting God enough that you are willing to do what he asks of you. Faith is a power for ourselves to give us the strength to move forward with things even when they are hard because we know that God Loves us. Show more Show less
