Hi I'm Jerry

I'm a convert. I'm an athlete. I'm an artist. I'm a rapper. My name is Jerry Reidhead and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19, I love to laugh and make people laugh, i love to draw, and i love to rap, Dese Saints! look us up on the book of faces!(facebook);] i am currently serving in the Oregon Portland Mission. My life hasn't been a Kodak picture perfect moment and I wouldn't want it any other way! My parents were never married and were separated before I was born, and both struggled with drugs while I was growing up. When I was younger I was very angry and bitter towards my life, but something clicked inside me and it was time to change! I was raised catholic, but hardly went and I didn't have an understanding of God or religion really at all. I started going to the LDS church with my grandma when I was about 14 and really felt every time i went that it was true, i started to gain a better love and understanding of the gospel and wanted to change my life. I had the missionary lessons and was baptized April 6th, 2008 when i was 15 and 11 months, by my best friend and cousin Tyler! My life has been progressing ever since. The missionaries brought a purpose to my life that i did not have before, and i was thankful beyond measure for that and what the savior did for me and each and every one of us. I know with every fiber of my being I am where I'm supposed to be and I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing I hope i can bring this happiness and purpose into another person's life!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I know with every fiber in my body that the book of Mormon is true, that its teachings can guide me back to my heavenly father, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of god, that he restored the church that Christ established on the earth. I know that Jesus Christ lives and is my savior. I know that he felt EVERYTHING I feel, he bled, and he died for me, and for each of us individually I know where I came from, I know why I'm here, and I know where I'm going because I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith
