Hi I'm Jeremy

I lived all over the world and love martial arts. I am interested in Music, the Military, and Natural Health and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently on a mission for the church and really love just being able to help people all day long. I love martial arts and learning to control my body. Music is incredibly important to me and I study it as often as I get a chance to do so. I play several instruments including saxophone, guitar, and piano. I enjoy shooting guns of any kind. I went to college at UNCW before my mission as a criminal justice major but am now on a pre-med tract. I have family and many friends who are in the military and are currently serving over seas. I love this country and am determind to serve in the military when I am done with my current service.

Why I am a Mormon

Though I did grow up a member of the church I questioned it for a little while on my own. I prayed about it, studied all kinds of religions, and really read the book of mormon. While doing each of these things I got my answer. After I read the book of mormon I prayed and asked if it were true. I felt an unexplainable peace come over me and I knew that this was it. I had the best day I have ever had and have since continued to read it daily. I eventually came to the point where I wouldn't leave my house until I had read a verse from the book of mormon just so I could have the spirit that it carries with me. I have had many very powerful spiritual experiences and I can say that I know for a fact that God is real and that his angels really do watch over us. As we follow the commandments we allow ourselves to be in the path of blessings that God sends us. By following the standards of this church my life has been blessed. I served as a Missionary in the Utah, Ogden mission and I have seen this gospel change peoples lives. I know that this is truely Christ's church restored on the earth again and its power works miracles everyday in peoples lives. I feel blessed to be able to bring this happiness to other people and have enjoyed much success in doing so. The more I dedicate myself to the work the more I feel blessed to be able to serve.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the commandments that God through his prophets has given us. I not only follow all of the different commandments but I live my life by principle. Christ's life showed us how we should live, and that is that we should love all who are around us. With that love comes the desire to serve other people and to be understanding of their needs. As I strive more to be like Christ I find myself slowly becoming like him and have a much greater happiness. I am serving a mission because I want as many people as possible to have a chance to learn about Christ and his teachings in this life.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

We proselyte because we want everyone to have an opportunity to have the same blessings that we have in their lives too. Show more Show less
