Hi I'm Jordan

I Stutter and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a beautiful land of trees and mountains in Central California. I am the youngest of 5 boys and enjoyed every minute of growing up! I love technology and have enjoyed participating in web and graphic design as well as photography and videography. From a young age I have had a stutter, but that has never stopped me from doing the things I love to do. I extremely enjoy doing community service, and helping others overcome challenges. At 17 I was a member of the Board of Directors for the Hughson Family Resource Center, a non-profit organization to help prevent child abuse, and promote healthy living. I started a Youth Council for the same organization to help keep teens out of trouble and into good wholesome activities. I am now an emeritus member of the Board of Directors. I was a full-time servant of the Lord for two years in Middle Tennessee and am currently a student at Brigham Young University majoring in psychology.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel saved me from depression and despair. Yes, I was raised in the Church but that doesn't mean that I was free from trials and struggles. During High School my stutter got so bad that I was hardly able to communicate. It became very difficult to do the things I loved so much, Like hanging out and just talking with friends, public speaking and serving in leadership positions that required me to make presentations in front of many people. It was highly embarrassing for me, but initially I wanted to work through it and not let it stop me. However, things did not get any easier and it lead me to begin to doubt. I doubted if God really knew and loved me? I began to get trapped in depression and despair, wondering if there was a way out, and if it was worth it. Thankfully my family did not give up so easily. They prayed often, and sought for ways to help me. I finally broke down, set my pride aside and sought help from the God I wasn't sure was even there. Of course he answered, I felt the most peace and comfort that I had felt in a long time. I felt the power of the Christ's sacrifice immediately begin to work in my life. I KNEW that I was loved and I KNEW that there was a way out. My attitude changed, from depression and utter despair, to happiness and hope. We then found a fluency specialist and things continued to improve. With the improvement in my stutter and my attitude, I was able to continue on with my life. My life long dream of serving a mission was realized, which for some time seemed out of reach due to the stutter. I still have a stutter, but I KNOW that God loves me, and that there is peace in life. That peace is only found through Christ and His Gospel! Because of the grace of God I served a mission and taught others of Christ, and the happiness that comes from His gospel! I now know without a doubt that this Church is true. This is Christ's Church and it is here to help us!

How I live my faith

 I love to serve others, I strive to help others as much as I can. Growing up, my parents taught me and my brothers the importance of serving others. I tried to live my faith by volunteering my time energy and talents to bless others lives. While growing up I was involved in community service, trying to help families and children succeed in their effort to learn and to grow. I now continue that effort by serving a full-time mission for the Church, everyday striving to build others faith in Christ and to come closer unto him. These two years of my life are devoted to God, every moment trying to draw closer to him, and to bring others closer as well.
