Hi I'm Jeremy Wise

I love skateboarding. I play the ukulele. I love to make others laugh. I served a mission in Hawaii. and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm currently going to school at Utah Valley University. I live in Provo Utah. I absolutely love skateboarding. I'd do it all day every day if i could. I recently returned from a lds mission in Hawaii. It was the greatest two years for my life. There is an extreme joy that i was able to enjoy as i helped the people of Hawaii come to know their savior. The church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints is the most important thing in my life. I want everyone to know understand it. Without it, my life would be a mess. I come from a family of five. I've lived in Utah my whole life. In my spare time i like to write comedy and occasionally perform stand up. I love to make people laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because by living the standards and reading from the book of mormon, it has made me the happiest i've ever been. It's given me the knowledge that I will be with those i love again in the next life. It's given me the knowledge that no matter what happens the savior will always be there to lift me up. The main reason i am a Mormon is because of happiness. It’s a feeling that consumes your entire being. It’s not something simply given, but achieved. It’s the feeling that everything is going to be ok, no matter what. It’s the knowledge of god. It’s the result of obtaining the spirit. It’s what drives each of us to be our best. It’s the ultimate reward. It’s the force behind good deeds. . It’s a favor given without the desire of a reward, a constant smile that is impossible to remove, the understanding that you are a child of god, this is happiness. All my life I have laughed and enjoyed life but it wasn’t until I gained a testimony of the lord Jesus Christ that I truly understood what happiness was. We all come from different backgrounds, different circumstances, but there is one thing we all have in common, we are children of a loving heavenly father. God’s happiness comes from our happiness and our happiness comes from obeying and doing His will. We are literally god’s children. This means we have been given divine qualities. We have the potential to become like him. Knowing that god is our heavenly father, we also know that he will always be there for us. We can get down on our knees at any time and talk to him about anything we need. He wants to help us. I am very grateful to be a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. I am grateful to have the knowledge that I am a child of god. I enjoy being truly happy. I want all others to experience the same thing. I have the capacity and the divine ability to accomplish anything I desire and I know that the lord will be there by my side every step of the way.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the things that are taught in the scriptures. I try to help others whenever i can. I love to teach and i try my best to share this great gospel with anyone that i can. I go to church each Sunday and read from the scriptures as often as i can. I have a lot of people close to me that aren't members of the lds faith and i try to show them by my example the blessings of having the savior in your life. When you life the standards of the church, others notice and will ask questions. Nothing brings me greater happiness.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Jeremy Wise
We can come to know our heavenly father by talking with him through prayer. He is always there and always willing to listen. The way i came to know my father in heaven was through prayer but also through living his commandments. When you follow what he says you are able to see the blessings that come from it and it helps you understand that He is there and that He does love you. If you are skeptical or aren't sure if he is really there, just try an experiment by keeping his commandments and you will come to know your heavenly father and you will experience true happiness.
