Hi I'm Jordan

I'm energetic and love my friends! I am going on my mission to Piracicaba Brazil and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Jordan and I love to hang around people and friends, they are my source of happiness and fun. I was involved with Student government at school and love to meet new friends at my school in rainy Washington. I love all sports but mainly soccer, basketball, and Ultimate Frisbee! I have loving parents who never stop to amaze me. They do everything for me and help me with everything I do. I have older brothers who are incredibly talented and who I love a lot. I have little sisters who are so crazy and pretty that they just make me smile, and then a crazy little brother who I light saber duel all the time!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because to me everything falls into place perfectly. Many questions I once had have been answered through personal study. Being a Mormon makes it possible for people to question principles and then find out for themselves why it is true. Many principles are questioned by my friends but I know that they are here to help us be happy in this life. I also know this church is true because of the chance that it gives to all people. I dislike the idea that if someone says they don't believe in God they automatically will go to hell. So many people I know don't believe in god but are so caring and kind, making sure that others are alright before themselves. The gospel gives the chance that everyone will have the chance even if they turn away Jesus in this mortal life. Also people who have died and never heard the gospel get a chance and that gives me hope. I can see how the principles of being Mormon helps form men and women with strong moral values and great courage. These values lead to happiness and a better future. Many people believe we can't enjoy life with rules and restrictions like these but actually I know for a fact that these "rules" help us so that we aren't restricted in what we do later in life. This gospel brings happiness to everyone who is needed and comfort to those who need it. I have found out for myself that this church is true and it has brought comfort to my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a friend to others. I serve others and make sure that they are happy and content. I believe that somebody who is a role model is somebody who puts others in front of himself. When I am completely serving others and forgetting about myself it gives you complete satisfaction and peace. I visited an elderly lady every single week before college and performed service for her so that her needs may be filled. I am a friend at school who does my best to somehow make others smile. I am an Eagle scout who has performed much service for my community and still strive to make it a better place. I also try to live what I believe without angering others. Sometimes the subject of politics arise and though I am set in my belief on many subjects I will not argue and fight over who is right. I strive to make sure that everyone is happy and will make sure that peace is set around me. I mainly just strive to be around friends and to make sure that they are happy and that there is peace around. I am currently serving a mission in the church to help others receive the blessings of this wonderful gospel. I am currently in Wilmington, North Carolina while I wait for my Visa so that I can go serve in Piracicaba, Brazil. I am loving being here and helping serve others.
