Hi I'm Jared

I 'm a lawyer and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a dad and a husband and love to spend time with my family. I love to be active and to be outdoors. I hike, camp, snowshoe, cycle, and do an occasional triathlon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of this church but that is not why I am a Mormon today. I am a Mormon today because it gives my life purpose. I know who I am, I know why I am here, I know where I will go when I die, and I know that God loves me. I know that by living the gospel of Jesus Christ I can be with my family for eternity.

How I live my faith

I wouldn't say that I am really all that different from most people. I have a wife and kids, I go to work everyday, and I love to play and I love to relax. I do dedicate a lot of my time to church service. I work closely with the full time missionaries visiting people and teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. My wife and I do our best to teach our kids about Heavenly Father and Jesus. I attend church each week and attend the temple regularly. I also like to take part in community service projects. While I make plenty of mistakes I try to be a good example of a follower of Christ.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Jared
When the missionaries first visit your home, if you don't already one, they will give you a copy of the Book of Mormon. They will tell you what the Book of Mormon is, where it came from, how we got it, and how it is another testament of Christ and a companion to the Bible. They will also talk about the teachings of Jesus Christ and how his sacrifice has made it possible for us to live with Him and with our families forever. Show more Show less
