Hi I'm Jared

I was a military brat who traveled the world/lost my mother at age 8 to cancer. I am a National Guardsman, a fiance..& I'm Mormon~

About Me

I am considered as a interesting guy, who always has a life story to tell. It's hard for some people to understand me, but then again it's hard to understand me too. For those who loose somebody close at young ages..for those who have step parents/..half brother or sisters and/or have people in your immediate family who isn't a blood relative..or of different races (I can relate). For those who move from state to state or out of the country..I understand the trials.

Why I am a Mormon

I wouldn't have it any other way. Seriously. I was born and raised in this church, but I still had to come to a conclusion that this church was exactly what it taught. I was baptized at age 8 by my father who joined in his 20s in the Army. The truth of the things taught inside the doors of this church never clicked to me till age 12, when I went to see a televised church conference and saw our current prophet give a talk. I was filled with the Holy Spirit, and felt deep down that he was truly a prophet, like a Moses of our day. I then prayed and asked God if this was the only 100% true church on the earth, and I knew that God had answered my prayers..hence why I continue in this church. The teachings, the doctrine, the humanitarian aid, the overall organization, being able to go from Korea, to Japan, to Texas, to Utah..etc and to find that the SAME teachings are taught is a truth to me. If you agree with these teachings or not, this church is one of the friendliest, most compassionate, and caring places you'll find out there. I was one of the only Mormons going to school growing up, and by living by the things I was taught, I became a great source of strength for others. I did the whole 2 year Mormon mission, too. I sacrificed a big opportunity for a cross country scholarship; leaving behind friends, family, and a girl who later went on to be Miss National US. I served diligently and was able to bring people closer to Christ. It was a challenge to learn Spanish, but I know that God helped me out by giving me the gift of tongues. Miracles are real, and are evident even in our day.

How I live my faith
