Hi I'm Jordan Jewkes

I'm an attorney, a father of two, a running enthusiast, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the proud father of a 3 year old boy and 3 month old girl. I am happily married to my college sweetheart, Amanda. We currently live in Sharpsburg, Georgia, but also recently lived in South Florida. I practice law in Peachtree City, Georgia, a city famous for the widespread use of golf carts. Recently, I fell in love with running and completed my first marathon and hope to finish many more. In my free time I enjoy coaching my son's soccer team, playing softball with other members of my congregation, and fishing. I also enjoy a good book and a good movie.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon faith but continue to maintain a strong belief of Mormon doctrine and principles because I have found through my own experiences that the teachings of the church are those taught by Christ when he ministered on Earth. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and have been fortunate to receive a confirmation by the Holy Ghost that it is true, and when I study the Book of Mormon and the Bible I feel closer to Jesus Christ and our Father in Heaven. I believe that Christ's true gospel has been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith and that we have living prophet today who receives revelation from Heavenly Father. Perhaps most importantly, I know that by living the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ I can live with my family eternally. This knowledge brings me great joy.

How I live my faith

Not one to "wear my religion on my sleeve," I goal is to live my faith by being a quiet but steady example of Christ. I believe that to be a member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is to truly be a "saint," by all definitions of the word, including service to others and sacrificing of my own wants and needs. I spend time with local youth and help share with them those things that have helped me become who I am. I am honest in my professional endeavors and treat others the way I hope to be treated. Mormonism is not just a Sunday-only church, but a seven day a week, 24 hour a day faith.
