Hi I'm Jared

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm working on a PhD in Epidemiology. Most of my life is consumed with studying now, but when I get a moment or two, I search out the local crag for some rock climbing, maybe I'll find a nice trail through the woods for run, or if the wind is right I'll go sailing. I find that life is an adventure, and I love to live adventurosuly. I've been married for a little over 10 years now to the most amazing women who has traveled all over with me. We don't have any children just a big ol black lab.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member, but I didnt' become a Mormon until I took the challenge given by the prophet Moroni in the Book of Mormon, to read, ponder, and pray with a sincere heart about the truths that were contained in the scriptures. This simple but honest prayer was answered through the promptings of the Holy Spirit which filled my heart, soul, mind, and body with a warmeth that felt so familure, almost like I'd known this before and was now remembering it oppoesed to learning if for the first time. I've found that the closer I align my life with the principles taught by the prophets of old and our prophets today the happier I am.

How I live my faith

I live each day knowing that I'm a son of my Heavenly Father. This knowledge inspires me to serve others regardles of who they are; because we are all God's children. I've spent many years teaching teens and youth about both the gospel of Jesus Christ and the outdoors. Through this I've begun to understand that the Lord teaches each of us individually and will respond to us in times of need if we simply petition His help.
