Hi I'm Jared

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am a scientist with a Ph.D. in Biochemistry. I am also a father of seven beautiful children. I love spending time with my family by playing games, going camping, hiking, fishing, just visiting.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. In fact, my family has been members since 1846. However, my personal reasons for being a member of the church and teaching my children of these truths are as simple as my ancestors. As a youth I wanted to know if this church was true so I read the Book of Mormon and prayed. I know I received an answer. In fact, I have prayed many times and received that same witness. I know that this is the Church of Jesus Christ, and is led and directed by the Savior. It brings me great joy to live my life in such a way that I know that my Heavenly Father is pleased with me. I also receive great peace in receiving guidance from my Heavenly Father through a living prophet. Living by the Savior's teachings brings me happiness.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church we all have a chance to serve. I have been involved with the working with the young men of the our church for most of my adult life. I get to serve as a Scoutmaster, teaching young men skills to build their character and help them establish their lives so that they can have a firm foot hold to stand up for noble values such as God and country. I teach them to serve others and maintain high morals. I get to teach them about God and how important they are to him as his sons.
