Hi I'm Jared

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a wonderful wife and four beautiful children. My number one hobby is spending time with my family, especially laughing together and enjoying each other's company. I love the simple things in life - playing with my children, family time, and being outdoors. I love playing sports, good books, and the mountains.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I felt a deep and abiding witness, from an early age, in Jesus Christ and the truthfulness of His restored gospel. As I studied and prayed, this witness grew to a conviction that has shaped the direction of my life. During my college years, I spent two years as a missionary in Hungary. It was a special part of my life, and sharing my faith and the gospel with others further strengthened my conviction. I especially cherished seeing people experience a mighty change of heart in their conversion to Christ and His church. As an adult, life's experiences haven't changed my testimony much over the years. It's still remarkably the same as when I was young. I know that Jesus Christ lives and has restored His gospel. I know that there is a prophet on the earth, just as in the Bible. I know the Book of Mormon is true - it has been a powerful source of inspiration in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to serve others, mindful of Jesus' example when He was on the earth. I try to teach my children and help instill in them faith in Jesus Christ. I try to share my enthusiasm for the gospel with others as I consider the wonderful blessings it has brought me. I serve as a clerk a home teacher in my ward.
