Hi I'm Jared

I'm an oldest sibling. I'm a UPSer. I'm a Missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 7 children. I had a new sister born in Feb. 2012. I love my family and am striving to be a good example and help them all to have peace and joy in this life. I worked at UPS for nearly 7 years. I was a supervisor for over 3 of those years. I was born and raised in Mormon Church, but I fell away when I was 12. I didn't become active until 2010, at the age of 23. From the time that I received conversion, my only dream has been to serve the Lord as a Missionary. I am now serving in the Texas Dallas Mission! I am so excited to meet all the people who I will be serving. I love America.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because God has affirmed to me that He exists and that Jesus Christ did live and die for me so that I could repent of my sins, and have peace in this life and the chance to live with my Father in heaven after this life. The Book of Mormon is a brilliant book. I read it often and treasure the contents on its pages. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God and that by reading and praying about it, I have drawn nearer to God than by any other means. I know where I came from, why I'm here, and where I am going. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet called by God in these latter-days. I know that the Mormon Church contains a fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I desire to share the happiness I have received with everyone I meet. Most of all, my own family. I know that through the ordinances of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, performed by the Priesthood authority of God, I can be united with my family for all of eternity. Being a Latter-day Saint is the best way for me to live.

How I live my faith

I view the whole human race as one large family. I try and keep that in mind as I get to know people. I try my best to smile at everyone I see. I am living my faith right now by dedicating 100% of my time to the Lord as a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I try to forgive quickly. I spend time with my family.
