Hi I'm Jared

I grew up in Texas, but now I live in Colorado. I love to ski, so where else would I live? I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a happily married man that has a beautiful two year old daughter. I love playing and watching all sports. Although, I do less of both of those hobbies now that I'm married and have a daughter to help raise.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that it is true. Plain and simple. I have come to know for myself through prayer and reading the scriptures. This may sound simple enough and it truly is. If you have a desire to know the truth, Heavenly Father will give you an answer through the Holy Ghost. This is how I came to know that God lives. Jesus is the Christ. We are led by a prophet, President Monson, that is God's mouthpiece here on Earth. I have an opportunity to return to live with my Heavenly Father again by following Gospel principles. What is also wonderful is that I know I can be with my family forever. I love this church and the happiness and freedom that it provides me by following its principles.

How I live my faith

I currently participate in my ward by helping to maintain the building and keeping it clean and secure. Having the opportunity to provide service is rewarding and gratifying. I also visit a few families each month and have opportunities to share messages and provide service for them. In fact, one of my most gratifying experiences was helping a family remember some of the experiences they had when they were active years before. The Spirit was able to remind this family of the joy they used to have attending church and participating in church services. Seeing the Spirit touch families firsthand reaffirms my commitment to this Gospel.
