Hi I'm Jared

I was born and raised in Idaho Falls. I am a Addictions Counselor. I enjoy running and spending time with family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 25 years old, married and have a small family. I love being a dad and spending time with my family. I am a student in a Social Work Masters program and will graduate very soon. I enjoy running and have done one marathon and want to try training for a half iron man soon. I like doing anything to do with the outdoors (camping hiking rafting etc). I am an addiction counselor in Boise Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church so naturally that had some influence. However I continue to be a member because I have seen the love that Jesus has for me and how he directs me in my life. He has made it know to me that this is His church on earth and He directs it still. I know that Jesus Christ is our only hope of salvation and He loves each one of us. He has more words than just the Bible and we can know Him more through reading testimonies of Him. I have sought through prayer and life's experiences and know that this church is the best way to have joy and contentment in life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by my actions in my daily life. On sunday however, I attend church and teach the young men. I strive to be an example in what I do. I live my faith like so many others. I don't just attend church on Sunday and leave I make it a lifestyle. I want others to know that I am a member of the church and see that in my actions and how I live my life. I want them to see that I am happy.
