Hi I'm Jared Johnson

I am just an average kid. I love sports, music and my family. I am a Mormon

About Me

I enjoy playing sports, I love music and just like any teenage boy i love to eat. I recently graduated from High School where i served as the Senior Class President. I am An Eagle Scout. I love the outdoors and go camping often.

Why I am a Mormon

If i were to tell you why i am a Mormon it would take more time than you would wish to hear me talk. but the most important reason of why i am a Mormon is because of the Spirit of the lord. When i turned 8 i chose to be baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was simply following the example of my family and friends. Something happened one Saturday morning in early October of 2002 that would change my life forever. I was given a gift. A gift that was unlike any other gift that i had been given before. It wasn't in a fancy box with a bow on top, it wasn't something bought in a store with i price tag on it. I was a gift from my Father in Heaven. He gave me the Gift of His Spirit to be with me every day of my life. I treasure this gift above anything else that i poses. The spirit has helped me gain my testimony and help me mold my heart. The spirit has born witness to me that the LDS is Gods Church on earth and that as head of his church are prophets and apostles who are the same as those that we read about in the Bible and Book of Mormon. When it gets Right down to it, the reason why I am a Mormon is Because of The Spirit of the Lord.

How I live my faith

The way that i live my faith is by striving to live my life the way that Christ would have me. Let me tell you. Its not easy to live your life in the footsteps of Christ; after all Christ was killed because of who he was and what he did. Through experience i can tell you that it is hard to strive to be like Christ. Some will Laugh at you. Some will avoid you. Its hard to try and do what is right and be laughed at. Its just hard. And because of those hard times i am hesitant to do the things that i know is right; and alot of times i didn't do what i should have because i was afraid of getting hurt. But let me tell you something. After those times that i failed to do what is right i felt like i had missed an opportunity and wished that i had been made fun of because i felt so bad. I have made mistakes and i will continue to make mistakes but i know that Jesus Doesn't care how many times you fall in this life, he only cares how many times you pick your self up after you fall and if you keep going. I Was Recently Called to Serve a Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am so Excited and i cant wait to dedicated every day of the next two years to serving the Lord. Serving a mission is something that i must do. I know that by serving a mission i will be showing the lord that i am willing to stand up for what i believe in and live my Faith.
