Hi I'm Jordan

I grew up in New Mexico. I love camping and hiking. I'm a father of 3 boys. I'm a watchmaker, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

While I was on my mission I was mugged and I lost my wristwatch. It was torn right off my wrist while I waited for the bus. After some searching, I replaced my watch with a hand-wound Longines pocket watch from the 1910s. I discovered I love mechanical things and now I'm a watchmaker. Everyday at work I start with broken machines and at the end of the day I have a working timepiece to return to the customer. When I'm not at work I try and get outside with my 3 boys. We run and play and hike and geocache. Fun stuff!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon, but there came a time when I had to choose for myself and continue the path of a Latter-day Saint. With the help of the Holy Ghost my personal testimony of Jesus Christ has grown and I continue to follow his commandments, not because my parents have taught me to, but because I know he is my Savior and Redeemer. I have so many blessings in my life as a result of my membership in God's church. Everyday I am blessed with a knowledge that my Heavenly Father loves me. Life seems so much easier with a knowledge of our Heavenly Father's plan. I don't have to ask, "why am I here?" "Why is this so hard?" or any thing else. I know why I am here.

How I live my faith

As a father my most important role in this life is to be a leader and example to my wife and children. As I follow God's plan for me, I hope they will follow my example. At church I serve in the scouting organization. The skills that scouting develops in our young men's lives will help them throughout their lives. Being outdoors with them brings us closer together and provides us with opportunities to discuss the blessings that the Gospel brings to our lives. In all that I do I try to be honest and true.
