Hi I'm Jared

I'm a Mormon baptized in the church in 2007. I work in pest control and have a great love for the outdoors.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful woman that intoduced me to the gosple. We have five beautiful children ( two girls and three boys) ranging from 10 years old to 3 years of age. I work in pest control and enjoy having pets, we have a rabbit, turtle and a lizard. Getting out doors with friends to target shoot, hike and hunt are my favorite past times when ever that might be :).

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I grew up in the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.I had my eyes open to the fullness of the gospel when I learned about the LDS church and their teachings. I always new Joseph Smith was a true prophet and felt like I wasn't getting all the answers that I needed. After taking the discussions with the Elders (missionaries) it answers a lot of questions. But, I guess I had a lot more quesions because I took the lessons 5 or 6 times. I did what I needed to do and what I was challanged to do. I got down on my knees and asked (for myself) if this is what I should do and asked if the church was true. I had to want to know the truth and needed to be willing to accept what ever the answer was. After humbling myself ,I received an answer from the spirit. It testified to me the truth of the gosple and his prophet Thomas S Monson. I knew I didn't need to wonder about where to look anymore, I didn't feel lost or left behind. I knew the path I was taking would lead me back to Heavenly Father and the kingdom of heaven.

How I live my faith

My life is full of challanges both at home and on the street. When I find myself doing something wrong I have the Holy Ghost to help me to make a conscience decission. But when I still chose wrong, it doesn't take long for me to need to repent. In my prayers I ask for strenth, forgiveness and to have my eyes open to the things that I might be deceived by. I hold the preisthood in my family as an Elder in the church and teach sunday school to the 12-13 year old children. I love the church and the gospel. I know the church is Christ's true church and that he came to this Earth to start it. I know that the church has been restored through Joseph Smith. Although the people of the church are not perfect, I know the gospel of the church is. I can count on the Lord for anything, anytime and I know it is done in his time.
