Hi I'm Jarom

I grew up in Indiana; currently I work at Sam's Club. I am also working to through school with an English degree. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am currently in school. My major is English. I find joy in reading the classics; and also in writing poetry. I can really connect with the time periods I read about. I am naturally curious about certain time periods; so literature helps me understand how people used to live, and what life was like for them. Also, I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Jamaica. It is an amazing island! I learned a great many things there. One thing I developed there was a love to teach. It is a great feeling to help people understand principles they have questions about.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because when I was younger I was searching for true happiness. I thought a life of excessive living could bring that kind of joy. However, when some missionaries came and reminded me of what I had learned when I was younger; and truly helped me find the joy I sought it was not a hard choice for me to come back to activity. Some would say I have been a member my whole life. However, I had my own conversion at the age of 21. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's true church restored once again to the earth by a prophet. Joseph Smith is the prophet of the restoration. God the Father and Jesus Christ did in reality appear to him. I know Thomas S. Monson is God's living prophet on the earth today; and he leads and guides the Lord's work.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being and example to others in word and action. I will admit it is not always easy; but it feels the harder that I strive to do what is right the more I receives heavens help. Another big way I live my faith is by serving others. I am the kind of person if I see someone broke down on the side of the road I will stop and give them aid. Also, I am assistant ward mission leader. I have the opportunity to go out with the elders and help teach people the principles I hold so dear and know to be true.
