Hi I'm Jordan Koford

I'm the California boy, the piano man, the Salt Lake City South missionary, and the Mormon.

About Me

I have been born and raised in California, and live in a city called Temecula, right by San Diego. I am the oldest sibling, with three little sisters. Let's just say there never is a dull moment in our house! I have been raised by two wonderful parents, who have taught me the ways of the Lord. I can't forget my doggy, Max! I love music. Ever since I was young I have always had a love for music, especially the piano. I have been playing for around ten years, and I am so grateful to the Lord for this amazing talent. I love Journey, Michael Buble, John Mayer, and of course, the Foo Fighters! I love jamming out with friends and listening to good music. Every time I hear a good tune I usually rush towards the piano to play it! My Heavenly Father has blessed me so much with a good ear. Currently I am serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Utah Salt Lake City South Mission. I have learned so much here, and have seen the Lord's hand so many times in my life and in the lives of others. I know how happy we can all be if we accept God in our lives. He wants us to be happy, and He knows perfectly how we can be the happiest- so let's trust in Him and do what He says! I love my life. I love my family. I love all of my friends. I love serving God. I love my Savior Jesus Christ. My name is Jordan Scott Koford, and I'm a Mormon! JK: This...Is Serious

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons. 1. The Book of Mormon. It is the word of God. If you haven't read it, read it. Don't just read it. Pray and sincerely ask God if it is true. I have, and I know. 2. Prophets and Apostles. One of the blessings in the Church is to have a prophet today, as well as apostles. Just as in times of old, we have the same organization as the primitive church of Christ, with the foundation of prophets and apostles (Eph 2:20). I have been so blessed by their counsel and I hope all will listen to their voices! 3. Joseph Smith. Without Joseph Smith and the restoration of the gospel, I would not be as close to my Savior. Joseph has restored all of the truths of the gospel in it's fullness, and was called by God to open up the dispensation of the fulness of times. I know he saw God and His son, Jesus Christ. I know that. 4. Jesus Christ. He is my Savior, and I know this is His church. This is not the "Mormon" church, nor the church of Joseph Smith. This is truly the church of Jesus Christ, and I know He is happy with the restoration of His church in these latter-days.

How I live my faith

"But be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12 That is how I live my faith.
