Hi I'm Jared

I'm a husband. I'm a father. I'm a finance professional. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married to the sweetest, most beautiful wife and we have two incredible sons. I am in the finance department for a manufacturing company and we have moved every year for the past three years. We are enjoying the journey and having fun creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know it is true. Although I grew up in a Mormon family, I do not continue to be a Mormon simply because of that. I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself through study and prayer that this is the Lord's Church and that He restored it on earth through Joseph Smith. I see the blessings daily from striving to live in accordance with the gospel teachings and the peace and comfort it brings makes all the difference in the world.

How I live my faith

Currently my responsibility at church is to work with the full-time missionaries who are dedicating 2 years of their lives to serving the Lord and the good people in our community. I love being able to meet with the missionaries weekly and to hear about those who are learning more about our church. I love being able to hear about the stories and especially meeting with those searching for the truth. It is so exciting to see the changes in their lives and to see the blessings the Lord pours out upon them. While my responsibility does take away time from my wife and family, we know we are blessed for our willingness to serve the Lord and to help His work progress in our community. The blessings we receive and comfort we have in knowing why we are here on this earth and what will happen after this life is over is something everyone needs to know.
