Hi I'm Jordan

I love Jet Skiing, making balloon animals, bull whipping and making knives. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I am the youngest of 5 in my famliy. I look up to, and love my famliy so much. My famliy means the world to me; they are my best friends. I grew up hunting, fishing, snowboarding and Jet skiing. I love being in the beautiful outdoors with my family. I love to be in Gods' creations and becoming part of them. I work with my Dad and Brother in our Knife Company. I love being in the shop working with metal and creating what ever the mind can come up with. I am currently serving a full time mission in the Arizona Tucson Mission. I get the chance to serve others and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ all day long. I love to see the changes and the effects that Jesus Christ has in our lives when we accept and follow his teachings. I love being able to interact with people and to feel of their beliefs and loves.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God our Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us here. He loves and wants the very best for us in this life. I am Mormon because he has revealed his plan and what we must do through a modern day Prophet. Joseph Smith really did see God our Father and Jesus Christ when he went and prayed on that spring day in 1820. All of the truths for our salvation have been restored. The Book of Mormon is a record of the dealings of God with the ancient people of the Americas. The Book of Mormon is proof of Gods love and evidence that he has called another prophet again in these days. Today there is still a living prophet, someone called of God to recieve direction and truth for all the world. I am Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true and that it is from God. I know it is true cause I have felt the surety of it in my heart. Because of all this I see the full picture of where I came from, why I am here, and where I am going. God loves us so much and he has given this to all the world. Jesus Christ payed for our sin, so that we could return back one day to live with him again. We can be with our famliy forever and that brings me great hope. I love the Church

How I live my faith

I live the Gospel of Jesus Christ the best I can by being a friend to those in need. I love to serve others and do my best to be an example of Faith and Hope. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is amazing and it is all about who we become. It has helped me become who I am today. I strive to have a close relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ daily so that I can become who they want me to become. I try to live by having faith in our Savior that the best will come of whatever happens. I do my best to love others at all times. If you need me I will be there to help you and lift you up. Bad things happen to good people, but bad things don't make people bad, that is a choice. When bad things come, I choose to laugh and keep on rolling. That is how I live my faith.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Jordan
The Atonement of Jesus Christ or sacrifice of Jesus Christ is key to all that we do in the Church. Jesus Christ lived a perfect life and it took just that to pay for all the sins of the world. Our Father in Heaven knew that we would make mistakes and do bad, so he provided a way to return into his presence. In the Book of Mormon 3 Nephi 27 19 pg. 459 it says " And no unclean thing can enter into his kingdom back with God . . . save it be those who have washed their garments become clean through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ in my blood, because of of their faith, and the repentance of all their sins, and their faithfulness unto the end." He is called our Savior because he saved us from spiritual death and physical death. We can return to God once again because of The Atonement. I know that the Atonement is real and it not only heals us from the pains of sin, but from the pain caused by others choices. We can feel his strength and comfort as we turn to him in all we do. Jesus Christ loves us all. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jordan
The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. Like the Bible that teaches us about Christ and what he has done through all ages of time. The Book of Mormon is a witness that God still loves us. The Book of Mormon teaches of the people of the Ancient Americas. The Book of Mormon teaches about the prophets and people, and their dealings with God. It is evidence of the love of God in these days. The complete Gospel of Jesus Christ what we must do to return back with God is found in the Book of Mormon. I know that it is a true book, and I know that anyone can come to know The Book of Mormon is true by reading, pondering and praying about it. Moroni 10 3-5 pg. 529 in the Book of Mormon gives the promise to all who will do these things, will come to know it is true also. When you know that the Book of Mormon is true, it means that all other teachings are true also. And that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true church on the earth. That there is a modern day prophet today. That Joseph Smith was called a prophet, through Jesus Christ to restore the church again to the earth. Iknow this is true and it will bless your life just as it has mine. Show more Show less
