Hi I'm Jared

I grew up in Hawaii and Arizona. My wife and I have five children. I am a partner at a law firm and speak Czech. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the father of five wonderful children. My wife and I have been married for 14 years. We have fun traveling and spending time together as a family. I am a partner at a law firm and enjoy my profession. Prior to law school, I lived in the Czech Republic for two years as a missionary and was able to become fluent in the Czech language. I currently serve as a bishop in an LDS ward. In our free time, we run children to and from scouts, piano, football, basketball, and gymnastics. Life is very busy and a lot of fun!

Why I am a Mormon

I have a very personal conviction that Jesus Christ lives. I want to live my life in a way that qualifies me to be called His disciple. If I do, and if I help my wife and children do the same, we will be able to return to our Father in Heaven together as a family and remain together forever.

How I live my faith

I am trying to live in a way that qualifies me to be called a disciple of Jesus Christ. Naturally, to become more like Jesus Christ is the journey of a lifetime. I want to gain more of His attributes. He loved others, He was patient and kind, He made and kept sacred covenants, He was faithful to the end. I believe if I strive to do the same, that His grace will compensate where I fall short.
