Hi I'm Jeremy

I am a guitarrero, a Political Science major, a husband, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love music! I play both acoustic and electric guitar, and it takes up all my time if I let it :) I'm the 7th of 8 children in my family. My father works in the U.S. Military, and this has given me the opportunity to live a lot of my life outside of my homeland, mainly in various places in the Middle East. I've gotten to see how vast the world can be, and I've gotten to learn a lot about other cultures. I am currently preparing to go on a mission for my church, to spread the good news that Christ does indeed live and continues to love and care for us all.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of this church since I was young, it being the religion of my parents. It might be argued that I stay with this church because I'm comfortable with it, and my being surrounded by great friends both young and old. However, the older I grow with this gospel, I see more and more how absolutely vital it is to my life. If nothing else, I am 100% sure my life would be completely different without being a member of this church, but I know so much of Jesus Christ and our Heavenly as two very real people who love and care for us very much. My Heavenly Father wants me to grow and progress in this church, and all around me are signs of it's simple truths.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by preparing myself to serve a mission for the church. My mission will allow me to spread the good news that this gospel has to offer, and I'm getting ready both physically and spiritually to be able to go on my mission.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Jeremy
There are basic principles that this church teaches. One of these is to read the scriptures. I've read both the Book of Mormon and the Holy Bible, and they are very intimidating books for sure. It's taken educated men for 2000 years of history to be able to interpret the bible, a lot of times getting nowhere because it can be so hard to understand. But when I read these books, it sometimes is just fun to read the inspiring stories that it has to offer. When I read it to enjoy stories of real people living in ancient times, the principles that these stories try to teach becomes easier to understand. When I can understand these principles, I have gained a knowledge for myself of what that particular doctrine means to me. This is a testimony. After which, I can testify that what I have read is true, and I know that even though the scriptures come from ancient times, they apply to me all the way in the 21st-century. Show more Show less
