Hi I'm Jeremy

I'm a cyclist and Iike to climb mountains. I also like to serve and help others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a cyclist and work in the technology industry. In my late teens I raced bikes on a regular basis and was a member of a team (swimmer, runner & cyclist) that won the Triathlon National Short Course Championship. While today I do not race as often, I still find time to ride each week and occasional participate in a race. You can always find me climbing the biggest mountains wherever I am at during the summer and enjoy weekly group rides with friends. However, the greatest joy in my life comes from spending time with my wife and kids. Whether that is a school or athletic activity or a weekly date with my wife, it is the thing that I look forward to each week.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints over 15 years ago. A friend gave me a copy of The Book of Mormon and I learned how it worked with the Bible to teach of the importance of Jesus Christ. I have many friends that took the time to teach me about the plan that Heavenly Father has for all us. It was at that time that I prayed and received confirmation from the Holy Spirit that God does answer prayers. God knows each of us and still does send the Holy Spirit to testify and give us answers to our prayers. Since that time I served as a full-time missionary for two years and my understanding and belief of the gospel of Jesus Christ continues to grow. I am grateful that the church is led by a prophet and 12 apostles and that we can find so much hope as we live the teachings of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I serve and help others in many different ways. Sometimes that is helping someone with a project at their home or it is just being there for someone in a time of need. Being part of a local congregation, called a ward, is like being part of a larger family. As the Savior was the example of serving others, so should we serve others and help out. I have often thought that my personal motto should be, "I serve and I am fortunate enough to be able to."
