Hi I'm Jeremy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a married father of four doing the best I can to raise a good family and be a good neighbor in the community where I live. I enjoy playing games of basketball, I like working in my yard with my kids, and I love watching college football! I attended both Brigham Young University and the Ohio State University and appreciate the religious and secular instruction I gained at both institutions. I'm a dad. I'm a Cougar. I'm a Buckeye. I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for several reasons. First and foremost among the reasons is that I have prayed and asked God if this church is true. I have received the confirmation from the Holy Ghost that it is indeed true and this is the religion that I should follow. I am far from a perfect person but I have learned that as I try to follow the teachings of the Savior I am at peace and I recognize the blessings of the Lord in my life. I look forward to attending church each Sunday and finding strength in associating with other imperfect people attempting to follow the perfect example of Jesus Christ. Following the principles taught in church have caused me to be a better person.

How I live my faith

I friend I grew up with once told me, "One day for heaven. Six days for fun. Odds of going to heaven....6 to 1!". I am comfortable in saying that being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints provides me several opportunities apart from Sundays to provide service and practice Christian principles. I like to think that fulfilling assignments to serve within the church has ingrained service as a part of my character - just a piece of what makes up "Jeremy". I've had the pleasure over the years of being asked to teach teenagers, care for young toddlers, provide support for young couples, and take a lead in caring for the widows in the congregation. Each assignment has brought new challenges and provided opportunities for personal growth. One of the unique aspects of participating in the church is that sometimes you are the one providing service and sometimes you are the one in need of service. Regardless of what side of the coin you happen to be on at any given time you can be sure that at some point your circumstances will be reversed. That's just life. But I've seen that people are neither held in high esteem nor looked down upon for their circumstances - people just follow the example of the Savior and love their neighbors. This is one of the reasons I love this church.
