Hi I'm Jordan Packham

I grew up in Colorado and California. I went to the University of Utah for a year. I'm a Mormon, and I'm a full- time missionary.

About Me

So i lived in Fort Collins Colorado for most of my life. I'm 19 and Growing up i loved to play sports (lacrosse, soccer, football, basketball, track, cross country) hang out with friends and girls, go snowboarding, wakeboarding, tubing, camping and hanging out in the rockies, 4 wheeling and just in general have fun. I have a loving mom and dad, and older sister, and two younger sisters. My grandparents also lived like 10 minutes away. I had such a great family and we were always supporting each other at each other's sports events and stuff. Most of my friends growing up were not mormon and I was completely ok with that, even though two of my good buddies were in other wards. Honestly I just loved my life growing up. I was blessed with good fun friends and we all just enjoyed living life. We were always constantly doing something. After high school I did one year at the University of Utah, while also doing the Air Force ROTC program. I had such a great time meeting new people, seeing my aunt, uncle, and cousins every week, being a part of the Institute program, and just in general living a great college life. I'll admit that it was pretty hard leaving all of my great family and friends back home. So I'm not sure if I will do another year at the U of U or at BYU. But right now I am on a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I am serving in the Washington Kennewick Mission. It is the absolute best. I've only been out for 3 months.

Why I am a Mormon

So why am I a mormon? Well thats not too hard of a question to answer really! I am proud to be a mormon. I was raised in the church all my life, all of my immediate family is LDS, and so is most of my extended family. Now you might say that I'm living off of my parents faith, or that I am just sticking to what I am comfortable with since I grew up with it. That I can't personally have a testimony of my own at just 19 years old. Well I'm here to tell you thats not it with me in the slightest way or degree. And it really isn't that way with most of the members as well. I have a huge testimony of the restored gospel, of the atonement of our savior Jesus Christ, and that through the restoration of the priesthood authority of our Heavenly Father, we now once again have access to the saving ordinances that not only lead to eternal salvation personally, but that also lead to our families living together for eternity, which is one of the greatest blessings that I can comprehend in this life.

How I live my faith

I'm on a mission!
