Hi I'm Jordan

I'm an artist. I'm a magician. I'm a thinker. I'm a creator. I love my family. I love to have a good time. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

So, the life of being an artist has it's ups and downs. Blank pages are the worst. Always being asked: "How are you going to buy food?" All the "starving artist" stereotypes. But, the power of creating something beautiful. Using the talents that God has given me, in combination with the creations around me. The arts are a beautiful thing. The power of expression that comes with singing, dancing, painting, theatre, writing; its wonderful to be a part of. I am also a semi-experienced contact juggler. The flow and motion of contact juggling is a wonderful feeling, and the awe and amazement of the different tricks on kids and adults alike are just so fun to experience. In the path of higher learning, making my understanding of life, school, the world, better; there are many paths that can be chosen. It is a blessing to be able to pray to God, to have guidance it what paths are the best, which will lead to true happiness. Often those paths are not walked alone. Having a wonderful family is a huge blessing. I am thankful for have parents that love me, and a sister that I have a strong friendship with. Life is just so grand and marvelous, the intelligence of God is evident by the simple complexities that are all around us. That makes life so amazing.

Why I am a Mormon

I mentioned earlier "simple complexities". The foundation of my belief is the principles of Christ's gospel. Those principles being: Faith in Christ, Repentance, Baptism, Recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. The simplicity of all those things, believing in Christ, saying sorry for what I do wrong, being Baptized, allowing to Holy Ghost to enter into my life, and never giving up; they are amazing. But they can be extremely complex! Using Faith as a power to do all things in regards to gaining lasting happiness. Changing my life to be in line with the will of God, changing my views of my life and the world. Following Christ example and making promises with God to take upon myself Christ's name and being born again in Christ. Allowing the Holy Ghost to direct me in all that I do, to be my constant companion on my path back to God. And then, never giving up, never taking my eyes off of the goal, the eternal goal, to live with my family in a state of never-ending happiness, to have to love of the Great and Eternal God, my Heavenly Father, to be with forever. The simple complexities. Why am I a Mormon, because ther is more. More purpose, more knowledge, more path, more understanding, more blessings. We learn one step at a time. Line upon line. But, there is no top, there is always more to learn. There is always more to be found. And that is the great thing. There isn't just and end. Eternity is forever. Life doesn't just stop, there is always more!

How I live my faith

As I have grown up, in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have had many experiences in learning, in serving, and in building a relationship with my Savior. Right now I am in the service of God, as a missionary to spread truth, the Restored Gospel. I started off with a loving family that taught me truth, that built me up. I served in leardership postitions throughout my life, in youth groups, in scouts. It has helped be learn how to be a representative. In my hometown, where I grew up, I was one of six in my highschool that were Mormon. I could go one of two ways, I could hide what I believe and put my candle under a basket, or I could stand proud of my faith, my belief in Christ and the truth of the restored gospel and hold my light up so that all could see. Not always was it easy. High School can be a very sad place for someone to stand up for themselves. But, it strengthened me, made me who I am today. That challenge of holding up one's light for others to see is one that continues throughout life. Now as a missionary, it is my job to spread that light, to tell others of restored truth. Truth not distorted by the long nights of darkness. Sharing with others the love that God wants all to recieve is the greatest thing I can do with my life right now. And what is more, is that it affects me, changes me, makes me a better person, brings me closer to my Savior, and builds that relationship to a greater extent. I love it!
