Hi I'm Jordan

I'm a Arizona boy, I love all sports, learning, and singing, I'm a student at BYU, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Grew up my whole life in Arizona and my amazing parents taught me when I was young about how to chose the right. I wasn't always obedient and learned a lot of lessons "the hard way" or through experience, but I am eternally grateful for their great influence and example in my life. My 2 brothers and 2 sisters are like my best friends even though we didn't always get along when we where younger. My competitive spirit always drove me to work hard in school to prove that I was as smart as my siblings. I loved school and always tried to do my best. As a youth I pretty much did every sport my time would allow including: tennis, racquetball, frizbee, cross country, track and field (high jump), wrestling, and volleyball. In high school I finally joined choir to learn more about music. Before choir I played the saxophone for 5 years. I lived in Mexico (Jalisco/Michoacan area) for 2 years as a missionary serving and teaching the wonderful people that live there. I had to learn Spanish and adjust to a different culture, but it taught me many life lessons and now I see the world a little differently. Currently I'm studying at Brigham Young University trying to figure out exactly where I need to be studying...

Why I am a Mormon

I was privileged to learn the gospel of Jesus Christ practically from birth in my family and while faithfully attending church every week. I've had many great examples in my life from my friends and youth leaders in the church who gave of their time to be our friends and to help us make good choices. I never doubted that what my parents taught be was true because I saw the happiness and righteousness that filled their lives and I knew it was because they lived the gospel. When I was 14, I decided to ask God if everything that I had been taught and that I had lived was true. One weekend when I was camping with friends and family in the northern mountains of Arizona, I went off by myself in the woods and received the warm comforting feeling of the Holy Ghost that testified that the gospel really is true and that I was on the right path. Since that moment in my youth I've had many confirmations of the truths of the gospel and every day I keep looking to learn and apply more truths about life.

How I live my faith

I believe that you must base your life of correct principles. I have learned many many things from attending church and reading the Holy Scriptures and I simply try and live them day to day, as hard as that may be at times.
