Hi I'm Jeremy

I'm a person who likes to read and play games. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to build computers, read science fiction books and I pretend to be a gardener while living in Arizona. My wife and I bike and hike during Arizona's cool winter months. I am a Arizona State University graduate. I am married but we are unable to have children.

Why I am a Mormon

My Dad is a convert while my mother joined the church while she was a child. At 19 years old, I had to decide if I was going to serve a mission for the church or if I was going to "move on" with my life. I spent some time staying at my grandmothers who lived in the county so I could decide what to do. I spent a lot of time reading the Book of Mormon and praying, asking God if the things I was reading true. After a couple of months of intense studying and praying, I received my answer that left no doubt to the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. Even after serving a mission, I have experienced trials in my life that would have moved me far away from God and his plan if not for my testimony. I know Christ lives, I know he loves each one of us and cares for us personally. I know the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know all of this because I received an answer from God. I don't live this way because it is easy and simple. I live the gospel because God has answered my prayers and I know this is his will. No matter how the world's view change on what's right, the gospel is constant and will never change.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day by trying my best to be a good example. I try to be kind to those around me and help those in need. I study the scriptures (Bible, Book of Mormon, etc) daily and strive to draw closer to the spirit constantly. I work at making myself a better person so no matter where I am, I will be ready for when the Lord has need of me. I know Heavenly Father loves me, so I try to show my love by service, smiles and listening. I want to be a good friend, husband, role model, and human being. Through daily prayer and having a prayer always in my heart, I strive to listen to the promptings of the Lord's will. I strive to hit100% Hometeaching each month and to be prepared with spiritual lessons. My wife and I are Seminary teachers to a group of the strongest, most spiritual kids I have ever known. This year we are studying the old testament and I can feel myself growing as I dive into the lessons. I am so impressed with our students and their dedication to get up and attend class at 5:45am every weekday. Their dedication inspires me and makes me want to do better each day.
