Hi I'm Jeramy Plumb

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college graduate and hold a B.S. and M.S degree in Agriculture Education from the University of Arizona. I began my Career in 1997 teaching Agriculture Education and the FFA. I have a strong background in Agriculture Mechanics, Greenhouse Operation, and Aquaculture and Fisheries Management. During my tenure teaching Agriculture I also spent a great deal of time working with young men and women to develop their future career goals and leadership skills through the State and National FFA organizations. In 2004 I completed a second M.S. degree in Education Leadership and shifted my career to focus on Leadership and Advocacy of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. I currently work as the Program Director for a Joint Technical Education District which enhances the CTE opportunities to over 5000 high school aged youth in the area. In my spare time I love spend time with my beautiful wife and three children. I enjoy spending time in the outdoors either hunting, fishing, or camping. My greatest joys in life are my faith in the Jesus Christ, my family, and the great outdoors!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a non-active Mormon family in a very strong Mormon community. Throughout most of my youth I was not active in the Church. Upon graduation, I set out on my own to discover who I was as an individual, and to learn more about life and this great world in which we live. Over the course of that time, I had a strong desire to learn more about religion and whether there was a GOD and if the things I had heard and read about Jesus Christ were true. I spent weeks attending a variety of religions and praying for answers to many questions. Over the next few years I searched, however my questions were never clearly answered. Soon I met the love of my life, who had also grown up in an inactive Mormon family and shared many of the same questions that I did. After College, we began to take the Missionary Lessons to learn more about the Mormon Church and the LDS faith. It was at this time that I finally realized that the truth I had been searching for all along, was contained in the very gospel that so many of my friends and family testified of throughout my youth. It was from here that I began to build my own testimony as I studied the scriptures (Old Testament, New Testament, and Book of Mormon) and prayed to my father in heaven, asking earnestly if the things that I read were true. Over and over I have received answers to these prayers through the Holy Ghost. I now know without a shadow of a doubt that the Mormon Church is the true church. I also have gained a testimony of Jesus Christ, my savior and redeemer. I have a testimony of the Holy Ghost, and I know that if I live the commandments which I have been given, that the Holy Ghost may always be with me and my family. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ, and is responsible for bringing about the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, AMEN.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service to family, in my work, my community, and the Mormon Church. Since becoming an active member of the church I have served in many capacities including serving as a father, teacher, and a friend. As a home teacher to many families in my ward, I have developed many long lasting friendships, while teaching the gospel and providing assistance to those who are in need. In addition to home teaching, I have also served in many youth callings and well as serving along side the other men in my ward administering to the sick and to those in need. Being a member of the Mormon Faith allows me to not only receive personal blessings in my life, but also bring joy and happiness in knowing that I have helped serve those who stand in need. Throughout my life I have enjoyed the opportunities and blessings received through meaningful service to others. This love has spread to my professional work and my community. I actively use my faith outside of the church by living my life according to the principles of the gospel, and strive hard to set a positive example for those whom I come into contact with in my local community. The most important way that I live my faith however, is in service to my family. As a Mormon, I have grown my knowledge and understanding of my role and father and as a husband. My faith has taught me how to love as Jesus Christ loved, and to provide for and bless the lives of each member of my family. My role as a father and husband is to love and care for family, and to teach them the gospel in my home. I cherish the time that I spend with my family and for the spirit that we feel in our home as we study the scriptures, pray both individually and as a family, and as we bear our testimonies to one another. The heart and soul of the Mormon Church is built and strengthened in the family.
