Hi I'm Jesus Navarro

I'm a college student with the goal to wrestle in college. I'm a friendly guy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! My name is Jesus Navarro. :) I am a college student with the goal to wrestle for college and qualify for the NCAA. I love my family and I love my friends. I am a really friendly guy and tend to make friends pretty quick if I give it a shot. I love music! Anything that sounds good and even classical music. I like to read almost anything! I am developing the habit of reading poetry and quotes almost every day. I consider myself completely loyal to anyone that trust me. The people that have been part of my life helped me grow up and be the person that I am now. I am a person with many goals and ambitions. It is important to me to never give up in doing what you love and never give up on who you love. I like to make people around me feel confident and comfortable. My most important goal would be making a difference that will bring happiness either to someone's life or to many lives! I want to be the best person that I can be and I know that the friends that I have, my family, and the Gospel will help me reach my goals.

Why I am a Mormon

It has not been too long since I joined The Church of Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints. I was lost for quite sometime because I did not believe in anything. I had no faith and no love in my heart. Every time I was about to succeed in something, I gave up at the last minute. My mentality was that I was a tough guy and a did not need anyone to succeed. That I could do whatever I want without the support of anybody. I was so wrong. There were days when I felt lonely and weak. Even though I had my family that loved me, I felt that something was missing. One day I realized what that was. It was faith. I decided to pray to God one night when I was feeling sad and lonely in hopes that He might be able to make me feel better. Nothing happened. I prayed for him to help me be better, to help me take this sadness and loneliness away. I wanted to believe in him and wanted to believe he would help me. I opened my eyes and realized that my friends who are LDS have happy families and never seem to be sad or feeling lonely. I told my best friend how I felt and she advised me to read the Book of Mormon. She later invited me to go to church with her. One day I went on a date with a special friend of mine and my best friend with her date to Temple Square, and we watch the Joseph Smith movie. It was then when I decided to get to know this religion better. The missionaries taught me the lessons and baptized me. The day of my baptism, I felt free and light. There was no more sadness in me and I didn't feel lonely anymore. I felt only love and compassion. I realized that our Heavenly Father gave me three special blessings that helped me get close to him. My best friend, the special girl that went on that date with me, and my friend that helped me find that special girl. Thanks to them and for what they did, I feel in peace with myself and I have faith again. I have the desire to never give up and the desire to live the commandments of the Lord. I love God, Jesus Christ and the true church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday with the excitement to feel the Spirit. I try to participate in Priesthood and learn about the church. I pray to God everyday now and read my scriptures. I pass the sacrament once in a while and I will get a little more involved as I brow in the Gospel.
