Hi I'm Jared

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a poor, starving university student studying Exercise Science. I hope to one day be a physical therapist and help out my parents as they get older. I love swimming and anything aquatic related; scuba diving, water skiing, snorkeling, water polo, etc. I love my family and hanging out with them. Hanging out with friends aint to bad either. Love music, reading, and playing video games, and love to share a laugh with anyone.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, meaning my parents were members of the church and my grandparents and my great-grandparents, so it's safe to say I have strong Mormon roots. I was raised in a wonderful family and there came a time when I had to make the choice on whether I wanted to be a Mormon or not. That time came when I was almost 8 years old, behind a locked bathroom door on Sunday right before church. I did not want to go to church, I thought it was stupid, and would not budge. I am six out of seven kids in the family; everyone else went to church, and my Dad stayed behind and talked to me through the bathroom door. I do not remember everything we talked about, but I do remember my Dad telling me if I wanted to know if this church was truly God's church than go to church and try it out, live it and you will know it is true. I did that and I have not looked back since. I have read the Book of Mormon and asked God if it is his Word. I have received a testimony from the Holy Spirit that it is true. I have prayed, read the scriptures, kept commandments, served, fasted, and prayed some more. I have been blessed and learned so many things of God that it brings me such peace, comfort, and happiness into my life. I know this is the true church of God with everything restored to give us everything that God has to offer.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday, and I honestly love it. I meet friends and make new ones. I do home teaching, which is going with a friend to visit assigned people in our ward that our leader has asked to to see every month; to check up on them and give help where ever it is needed and just to be a friend.
