Hi I'm Jordan

I'm an avid photographer, a son, a brother, and a Mormon.

About Me

To start off, I want to tell you that I love my life! Until moving to Virginia for my two year church mission, I lived in a small Utah town my whole life. I couldn't have asked for a better area to grow up in. I am the older brother of three younger siblings, and I have two caring parents. I love reading. A day spent reading is a day well deserved. I especially love church based books. I also love spending times outdoors, especially in a canoe. But I must admit, when the opportunity is there, a good hour nap on the couch is the best. I love to watch uplifting movies, listen to music, sing, and spend time with happy people. Life is great!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I know for myself that the Book of Mormon is true. Because I know that, I know that Jesus Christ has commissioned Prophets and Apostles on the earth today to show us how to know God and be happy. Jesus Christ is that truth and his teachings, when applied, are our source to spiritual power. When it comes down to it I know that God can help us change and find peace and hope in any situation. It starts with wanting to take charge of your life, in the areas that really matter, and realizing you can't do it without Christ. I believe that the only lasting peace comes from knowing who you are and liking what you are becoming, that's the kind of peace that cannot be taken away. I want to be good, and I know that it is through our Redeemer Jesus Christ that we can gain the strength to rid ourselves of all that is not good. I know this Church is Christ's church restored. I KNOW that God lives. I have felt the love of my Savior time and time again. I know that there is no other way to live with God again, unless we take advantage of the Atonement that is at our fingertips. I have felt the power of the Atonement. I know how much it can help every individual. I am so truly happy when I live the gospel, and I want to share it with everyone I come in contact with! I have been so blessed to be born and raised in the time and place that I have been. Again, I know that Christ's church is restored, and I am happy to be a member of it.

How I live my faith

I try my best to have a positive outlook on things around me and try to be an example to any and all that I see or associate with. I am always willing to listen to people and help them through trials however I can. I show respect to those around me, seeing them as children of God and treating them as such. I am willing to do my part in serving and helping others. I attend church every Sunday that I am able and go to other church functions as well. I study the scriptures daily and ponder on how they can relate to me or my family and our life situations. I pray for assistance in all these things and live every day to the best, so I can be there for those who need me. I strive to live my life as Jesus Christ did.
