Hi I'm Jared.

I'm a Utah native. I'm studying to become a college music teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have been married for 2 years. We struggle to get by, but we're finding that God is looking out for us. I am a trumpet player. I hope that one day, when I am qualified to teach in a college or university, I'll be able to support my family and enjoy what I do; teaching and playing music. I also enjoy swimming, hiking, and playing basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God loves His children. I know He loves me and my family. I can see the evidence of His love in His restored church and gospel, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was raised by a family who are all Mormons, and I am grateful that they taught me and gave me an opportunity to gain a testimony of this Church. Without their examples and teachings, I likely wouldn't be a member of this church. I truly started to believe when I moved away to college 6 years ago. I began to be active in the church not because I was forced to, but because I wanted to. The Lord blessed me with faith as I kept the commandments with a willing heart. Since then, my belief has grown as I've lived the gospel in my daily life and as I've shared the truths I know with others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. That is what Christ did. I currently serve the young men in our ward. I try my best to help the 12 and 13 year boys learn how to keep the commandments. I hope that when I am called to serve someone else, that they will be better young men then they were when I first started to serve them. I also try my best to live my faith by serving others who aren't members of the church. I do this by greeting them cheerfully, seeking to help them if it seems that they are having a hard day, or seeking to be a blessing in their life rather than a burden. I hope that others will be happier and will see the Savior when they interact with me.
