Hi I'm Jordan

I'm a sports lover, I can speak Japanese, love Call of Duty, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a die hard athlete, and huge BYU fan. I've been playing sports since i can remember. I've been blessed with opportunities to play sports in other countries besides the United States. I want to see the world, be a father, and a good husband. I am currently serving a mission In Fukuoka Japan. I`m a patriot, huge military supporter, and love everything about my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but really didn't have a testimony of my own. It wasn't till years later when i would realize other peoples testimonies and spiritual experiences wouldn't keep me in the church. I have felt what it is like to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life and what its like not to. Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way, but I'm thankful that God let me go through various tough things because it it helped me turn my life around. I'm grateful for the atonement of Jesus Christ. That through him, we may become clean from sin and return Home to our Heavenly Father. How sick is that!? That no matter what we have done or will do; if we sincerely change our hearts and repent we can become clean again. I know with every fiber in my being, that I would not feel the joy and happiness I feel now, if it wasn't for this church and its divinely called leaders.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day by day, second for second. I've come to realize through personal experience that each day requires my full attention and strength. It is easy to fall and get caught up in the enticements of the world; to become someone that others want. We tend to forget what is really important and live as the world would, not as God would. It is the little things in life that make all the difference. Little choices do determine our destiny in this life. Where our treasures are, so is our heart and attention. I try to live my life in accordance to Gods law, and strive to become like him.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Jordan
A testimony is a personal witness that what you believe is true. This confirmation comes through the Holy Ghost, the third member of the god head. A testimony is the knowledge that God loves us, that he sent his only begotten Son Jesus Christ to come to the earth and take upon the sins of the world. So we can be saved and return to live with God. We know that these truths and many others make up our beliefs and our testimonies. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Jordan
The family is important because the organization of the family is eternal. Before we came to this earth we lived in a family with God. Here on earth we have a family and we believe that in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that families, sealed in the Holy Temple of God, can live together forever after we die and into the next life. It has always, and always will be, a means which Heavenly Father will institute to bless and enrich the lives of his children. In families we learn and grow, acquire correct and righteous principles, gain a proper education. We develop physical, emotional, and spiritual bonds that are essential in gaining and living a successful life. With perspective, close families, and spiritual guidance from Heavenly Father and His divinely called church; families can be together for time and eternity...... If we live worthy of it!!!
