Hi I'm Jaaron

I'm a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints, so. . .I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In high school, I developed a love for lifting weights. I will always have a passion for it. It's what I do with a lot of my free time. I will compete in bodybuilding competitions when I get back from my mission in Atlanta, Georgia. l will continue to love the sport throughout my entire life. I love diet, nutrition, lifting and learning more about how to perfect the body. I'm the oldest of 3 siblings. They are amazing! I'll go to college and med/law/business school after I get back, but that isn't important right now. All that matters right now is serving others for the next 2 years.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up in The Church, I was a troubled youth. I rebelled for the latter part of my teenage years, as do a vast majority of kids from all demographic groups all across the world. I was blessed with intellect. This seemily prideful expression is not what it initially appears to be. You see; I, like many, have been blessed with a 'talent', yet I was never humbled by much in younger years. I used this 'talent' to further myself rather than to further others. I was driven, in EVERY sense of the word, by narcissistic devices. It was only until recently that I have FINALLY figured out that this life isn't about ourselves. This life is about others. Helping others progress in EVERY way! This, and this alone, will prove to be the catalyst that progresses us to the greatest degree. This is the key. I have now dedicated myself to strive to use my 'talent' to provoke thought and reason in others so that they, too, can feel a stonger individual love for the Savior. Even if this Gospel isn't true, it's still holds the path to find true happiness in life. The best part is that it IS true! The best-er part is that there are ways that you can find out if this is true for yourself. The Spirit converts. One needs to humble one's self before the Spirit has any effect on their testimony. If one wants to know the truth, one can.

How I live my faith

I have only been a truly faithful Mormon for about a year or two. Rest assured, Reader, for I will press forward for the rest of eternity now that I have embarked on this search for truth. I'm on a mission right now in Atlanta, Georgia because I have gained a strong personal testimony of the Atonement and truly realized the Savior's love for me. I like to preach the Gospel by example. I like to be an example to my friends, peers, and younger siblings. Sometimes it is hard to have the pressure of younger siblings looking up to me to be an example, but when I am living my life worthily and teaching them the right way, it makes it all the more better. My parents raised me the right way and started me off on the right path and now I'm continuing on that righteous path because I know it's right for myself. At the moment, my number one priority and ultimate goal is to live the most Christ-like life that I possibly can so as to inspire as many of Heavenly Father's children as possible to strive for personal progression in every aspect of their life. I want as many of God's children that cross my path to experience the pure joy that I feel on a day-to-day basis. This is where true happiness can be found.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?
