Hi I'm Jordan

I'm from Southern California. I'm a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love enjoying life and spending time with my friends and family. I am a college student. I love listening and playing music. I'm so grateful for the gospel in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint my whole life. I was baptized by my father when I was 8 years old. I came to know for myself that everything I had been taught was true when I was 16. I read the Book of Mormon and then prayed to God to know if it was true, and my prayer was answered. My faith and love for Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ has continued to grow. I know that we are all children of God and that He loves us so much. I know that Heavenly Father and Christ have a body like us. I know that through Christ's sacrifice that we may be free from our guilt and burdens. I know that we can live with our families forever. I know that Joesph Smith is a true prophet. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and teaches us about our Savior. The Book of Mormon has helped me so much in my life with helping me understand better God's plan. I continue to follow the gospel because I know this is where true happiness is. My life would not as good as it is if I were not living the gospel. I know by following the gospel of Jesus Christ we will have a happy and hopeful future.

How I live my faith

I had the privilege of serving as a missionary for two years in Brazil. I am so glad I had the opportunity to teach people about the teachings of Jesus Christ. I continue to help out by visiting members of our congregation monthly. I enjoy doing community service to help those in need. I also love to go out and teach with the local missionaries.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Baptism by proper authority is essential to return to God's presence. Those who have died without being baptized by the proper authority can receive this through proxy baptisms. They can then choose to accept of decline the baptism that was done on their behalf. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that families are essential to Heavenly Father's Plan of Happiness. Through accepting Christ's Atonement we can live together as a family forever. Show more Show less
