Hi I'm Jordan

I'm a chemist, a book-worm, a hiker, a trumpet player, an athlete, and a Mormon.

About Me

Although I was born in Utah, I did most of my growing up in the frozen tundras of Minnesota, where ice was invented. I love skating and playing hockey in the winter, and soccer and frisbee in the summer. When it comes to music, my whole heart and soul belong to the trumpet (but you might occasionally catch me singing). I've played for 10 years and don't plan on stopping there. I am also a big science nerd and an aspiring doctor -- I study chemistry at BYU and plan on attending medical school. And if you can't find me doing any of these other things, I'm probably curled up somewhere with either a good sci-fi novel or the scriptures.

Why I am a Mormon

John 6:66-68 "From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life." I feel much like Peter did on that occasion. Where else would I go? I believe that this church really is Christ's church. The words that the modern prophets teach are His words. I cannot leave because there's nowhere else for me to go. I receive guidance here. I have peace here. I've tried the unbelieving route and all it did was give me more questions and less answers. But I do find answers here! I am sure that Jesus is the Son of God, and that he lived and died entirely to give us an example to follow and a way back home to heaven. That same Jesus, resurrected and glorified, called a boy to be a prophet in the early 1800s. Through that boy, the greatest church in history was reestablished, the church of Jesus Christ himself. It continues today and its doors are open to all who search for truth and understanding. Once you know these things, being a Mormon is the only thing that makes sense!

How I live my faith

For me, being a Mormon means being a good example. It means trying a little harder to be a little better each day. Christ said that serving and loving others is the same as serving and loving Him, so I always try to smile at people and lend a helping hand. I serve in the community and in the Church. Also, being Mormon means always seeking light and knowledge. That's why I love being a student, because my only job is to learn everything I can! I also read the Bible and the Book of Mormon daily, and I go to church on Sundays. That way, I never stop learning about my faith either.
