Hi I'm Jordin Schmidt

Helping others is what I like to do the most. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 years old, I've played roller hockey for 10 years and ice hockey for 4 of those 10, I like video games for Xbox 360 or computer. Did a year of college and loved it! Studied Aviation Pilot Training for that year which included Private Pilot Ground School, Navigation, Meteorology, and Aerodynamics. I am very open minded and love learning new things everyday, even if its, "insignificant," or a, "random fact" those are pretty neat and fun! I am really laid back and love to burn up some gas if i ever need to vent or relax a bit. I love metal music and techno, hardstyle is my style! I hate how people think metal is satanic, but ive heard the most moving lyrics with the bands i listen to: August Burns Red, Life in Your Way, and MyChildren MyBride. I can Shuffle, Hardjump/Jumpstyle, i love underground stuff that people think they know about because a band made it mainstream for a month or two. I am 2 months from completing my mission in Idaho right now and its been the best of my life! Love it here!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and just kinda went through the motions growing up. Once i was involved with the young men and scouts it got really fun, with all the camping and adventures we've had. I knew growing up that the church was true but didnt really ask if it was, so one day during General Conference I prayed and asked if Gordon B. Hinkley was a prophet and I felt good after i prayed. I knew that if he was a prophet then all his predecessors before him were and that this is God's church. 

How I live my faith

I live my faith by activley sharing the gospel. I am a missionary in the Idaho Boise Mission right now and love helping other people, cause thats what missionaries do.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Jordin Schmidt
A prophet named Mormon took all the writings of prohpets and complied them all together around 400 years after Christ was resurrected. Joseph Smith only translated it into english so we could all read it. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Jordin Schmidt
Simple read the scriptures, pray, and go to church. Without one our testimony slowly falls. They strengthen and rely on each other to build us up! Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Jordin Schmidt
The Bible is the word of God and scripture, I love to study this because it helps me have a greater understanding of Jesus Christ and His life. The New Testament is a great source for learning about the way the Lord wants us to live. Ive read it twice on my own now and I love it! We need to be careful not to get so casual with it though, such as the language in it. It may be tough to read an older version of it but with the newer versions today, those take away from alot of the real meaning. Show more Show less
