Hi I'm Jared

I'm a Mormon. I'm from The Ohio! I love to sing and I talk with my hands!

About Me

I am the youngest of 7 kids. I love old stuff... old movies, old songs, and old people... I love swing dance and American Sign Language. One of my many dreams is to one day own an old fashioned bakery/diner. Before that though I want to be a Sign Language Interpreter/ Teacher. I love my family, I love fresh baked bread, and I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am currently serving as a full time missionary in Torreón México! It`s hot here but I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that the Gospel is true. I know that this is Christ's restored Church. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, the pages contain a record of Our Heavenly Fathers love for all of his children. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet today and through him God speaks to us. I am a Mormon because I know these things to be true.

How I live my faith

After I learned for myself that this truly is Christ's church I began to feel a desire to share this knowledge with the world. I live my faith by sharing it. I've spent the last few years of my life spending the balance of my time working with the missionaries. I had amazing opportunities to share what I knew to be true with all of the people I met. My desire to share the message of the restored gospel grew stronger and stronger until finally I received my call to serve as a full time missionary in Torreón Mexico. I love this knowledge that I have and I joyfully share it.

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

In life we have challenges, everyone has to face them and some challenges can be really difficult. It is during these trials that I know more than ever that there is a God. The times when I can no longer stand on my own, I fall to my knees and I pray. I pray for the strength to get through the trial that I am facing. It is during these times that I feel him with me. I know that he hears me and he Comforts me. Show more Show less
