Hi I'm Jordan Gerig

I grew up in thousand oaks CA, live in Mesa AZ, out on a mission in tennessee and I'm a mormon

About Me

I lived the first 14 years of my life in Thousand Oaks, California. My father has passed away and then we moved to Arizona. I am now serving as a full-time missionary in Tennessee. I am 19 years old and loving life. I have 3 sisters and 1 brother. I started playing the drums when I was in middle school band. I've been playing ever since. I am a very happy person. People always see my smile no matter where I go. My nick name on the marching band field was Big Joe. All of my friends know that I am proud to be a mormon and will always share what I love.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon in the first place because of my parents. When I was in high school and attended seminary, I gained a testimony for myself. I have truly chosen to be part of this church for many reasons. The people at church are always helpful and are there for me. The gospel teaches us to serve one another. I love to help and love being there for people.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always having a helping hand and open arms for people. Always smiling and welcoming people. I am never in a bad mood, and I am always willing to help. In my youth group, we help people with things that they are unable to do and it always puts a smile on their face. I would rather help some one else first before helping myself.
