Hi I'm Jared

I'm a father of two, a software engineer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work as a software engineer, so I spend a lot of time with computers. I like to read books and play games. I'm married and have two little girls, who are truly entertaining and keep me busy most of the time. I was born in Vermont, grew up in Nebraska, went to college in Utah and now live in the Seattle area.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been members of the Mormon church for a very long time, so I grew up with this faith. It's not the tradition of my family that keeps me here though. I'm Mormon because being a Mormon and living according to the teachings of the church brings me happiness. I've learned through experience that being a Mormon makes me a better person, and I've felt the Spirit of God in my heart that confirms to me that this is what God wants for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every week and reading from the scriptures (the Bible or Book of Mormon) and praying daily. I try to follow the teaching of Jesus Christ in my life and try to teach my children to do the same.
