Hi I'm Jared Noorlander

I live in Grand Island, NE with my wife Ralae and three young children. I work as a nurse anesthetist.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Utah. I have 5 brothers and 5 sisters. I married my sweet wife Ralae. We have three young children 8, 5, and 2. We attended school in Cleveland, OH where I graduated with Master's of Science degree in Nursing in Nurse Anesthesia. We moved to Grand Island, NE where I work. I enjoy fishing and the outdoors and spending time with my children.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were converts to the church. I grew up having always attended the church. When I was 19 years old, I made the decision to serve a mission for 2 years. I was asked to serve in Recife, Brazil. While I was in the Missionary Training Center to learn the language, I learned for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was the true church. I prayed and received a confirmation. The teachings of the gospel teach me to be a better person. It teaches me to be a better husband and father. More importantly, it teaches me what I need to do to live and return with my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I try to be the best person I can. I try to be the best husband and father I can and try to be a good example. I try to be a good neighbor and friend.
