Hi I'm Jordan

I was born and raised in Arizona. I'm the youngest of five brothers and sisters. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love history, music, and science, and I can never decide between the three. Going to college, I am trying to juggle it all and find out which one I love the most. The result is a rather exciting, if a bit scatterbrained, life. Whether it's fencing, singing, playing sports, or studying the wonders of our existence, I love to just experience life. I have been called to a mission in Boise, ID where I will teach the children of the Lord in both English and Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

Having been born in the church, it wasn't until I was older that I asked why I was there. My parents have always been very supportive of my own choices, and I felt free to ask if I really believed that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is God's church on earth. After reading the Book of Mormon and praying endlessly, my answer came. I honestly don't remember when I knew for sure. In fact I don't think it happened all at once, but I know that my answer came. I know that Christ lives, and that he has built his church here on earth. This is it. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

There are many ways to live one's faith, the key is that you live it. Right now, I am serving a mission for the Lord, inviting others to come unto Christ. If I follow his example I know that I will not be led astray.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Jordan
I believe that the Bible is the word of God. Both the Old and New Testaments are precious. The Old testament holds a precious record of prophesy from men who were called of God to lead his children on the path of Righteousness as well as a record of how the Children of Israel were blessed when they followed the will of the Lord. The New Testament contains a record of the earthly ministry of Christ, testifies that he is the Son of God, and shows the organization of the church led by his Apostles. Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Jordan
Somebody once told me that a cult is what the big group calls the little group. Granted, the church is not so small anymore, but it is by no means a part of the big group. Jesus is the Christ, he stands out. So do we. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jordan
No, we do not. I think of Joseph Smith on the same level as Moses or Elijah: He is a prophet of God, a servant of Jesus Christ. These men worshiped Christ and so do I. Show more Show less
