Hi I'm Jarod

I was born in Guam. I love Life! I'm a Mormom

About Me

I am attending Utah Valley University. I completed one year and I am Currently called to serve a mission, where i will share the gospel for two years in Phoenix Arizona. I love sports! Mainly wrestling. I enjoy boating, cliff jumping, and chasing roosters. My family is awesome. I have three older brothers that I look up to. We have had crazy adventures like floor hockey in the basement, sled races down the stairs and many other crazy things that 4 brothers do in their youth. I also have two younger siblings that I love so very much and are so fun! Obviously, My mother is a very patient women being able to raise a Zoo like my family! She is the greatest Mom anyone can have. My dad is one of the hardest working men I Know. I do not recall him ever missing a day of work, or missing a game or performance of one of his 6 kids. Ya I've had some trials in my life like everyone does, but I can honestly say my life has been truly blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I mormon??? well like Matt Damon in the movie "We Bought a Zoo" says, "Why not!" Why not be as happy as humanly possible? Why not have hope and faith that death is not the end. Why not know that through Jesus Christ our Redemer our sins and guilt can be washed away. Why not know that we have a current prophet on the earth who leads and guides the church today like Moses and Abraham of old. Why not know that we are the children of a loving heavenly father who knows and loves each and everyone one of us. Why not know that our purpose on this earth is to recieve a body, to learn, progress, and prepare to return to live with our Heavenly father. Why not know that we can pray to our heavenly father and he hears us and comforts us and blesses us. Why not know that my family will be together for all eternity? How do I know these things? I have read the Book of Mormon and I prayed about it to know if it is true and if this church is true. I recieved an answer and I have had confimation after confimation prove to me why this church is true. For those of you who are reading this who aren't members of our chuch I say to you read the Book of Mormon...... Why not! who knows, it may be what you have been waiting for your whole life!!!!

How I live my faith

I am going on a two year mission like the majority of 19 year old young men do in our church. I will be preaching the gospel and helping others come to Christ. I am exicted to be able to serve the people of Phoenix Arizona!
