Hi I'm Jeremy

I grew up in the United States. I work at a hospital as a physician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband, father, and physician. I love fast cars, fly fishing, playing the guitar for my kids, and gardening.

Why I am a Mormon

There have been members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in my family for five generations. I learned the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ as a child and gained a testimony of its truthfulness while serving as a missionary for the church in Sydney, Australia. I know that God lives and that his son, Jesus Christ, is our Savior. Throughout the ages, many gospel truths were lost. Jesus restored his true church here on the earth through Joseph Smith, a latter-day prophet. Joseph Smith also translated an ancient book of scripture called the Book of Mormon. This book tells us of the ancient inhabitants of the American continent and their testimony of Jesus Christ. I believe that reading and studying the scriptures, including the Book of Mormon and Holy Bible, will bring me closer to God. God continues to call prophets to lead and guide us. His current prophet is Thomas Monson. I continue to follow the gospel of Jesus Christ because it brings me and my family happiness and direction.

How I live my faith

I serve in the church as a missionary. I help to organize missionary activities in my area and try to share the gospel with those around me. Visiting and helping church members in my area is another way I live my faith. I also try to live and act according to the teachings of Jesus Christ. I teach my kids about the gospel of Jesus Christ and involve them in serving others whenever possible.
