Hi I'm Jordan

I am from Utah. I am a college student pursuing a career in Civil and Structual Engineering and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of four children. I enjoy playing video games and watching movies, especially Star Wars. I also enjoy reading, learning, drawing, and playing soccer and basketball. Currently, I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Upon my return I plan on continuing my studies in Civil and Structual Engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the church. Most of my family has been members for several generations. I learned to love going to church as it helped my family to stay united and close to one another. No matter the trials that have come into my life, I have seen that as I have diligently applied and lived the teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ, I have been greatly blessed with peace and happiness Knowing that these things were true was not something that happend all at one moment for me. It was a gradual process. One of the biggest things that has helped me to know that this is Christ's church, is the Book of Mormon. As I have studied from it daily, I have felt the calm assurance that God lives and that Jesus is the Christ. I have seen miracles as God has answered my prayers and continued to guide me throughout my life by helping me to make correct decisions.

How I live my faith

I simply try to be my best self. Our perfect example is Christ and I try to model life after his. I try to be patient and kind with my family, friends, and all whom I come in contact with. I am obedient to the commandments that God has given to us as His children. I seek learning from the scriptures daily to find ways that I can improve. When I am faced with a tough decision in my life, I turn to my Father in Heaven to give me the answer and help me to know the way. I seek to serve others and try to help them to become their best selves. In the church I am currently serving as a missionary which means for two years, I try to help people to better their lives and follow the perfect example of Christ.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joseph Smith was a young boy who was seeking for answers from God about which of all the churches he should join. As a boy he learned of the importance of reading the Bible and praying. He then applied what he learned to seek for an answer from God to his question. Joseph prayed and asked God which church he should join. God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ appeared unto him and answered that he should join none of the churches and that their church was no longer upon the earth. Later he was called to be a prophet and was taught and given the authority necessary to bring back Christ's church. I know that Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet because I have prayed and asked God myself to know. Show more Show less
