Hi I'm Jordan Stowell
I'm a songwriter, athlete, I have Tourette's, I'm an ultimate frisbee player, and I'm a Mormon!
I love writing songs! I love music! Piano and Ukelele are my favorite instruments, besides singing. I've had Tourette's since 5 yrs old, and it hasn't been the easiet thing. But I found music to be a God-given tool in my life for a very specific reason. I've really connected with music. I kinda look at it as a temporary "cure" for my Tourette's. At the end of long stressful days and endless minutes of twitching out, with my body all tense, I can always find a piano to sit at to "play out" my stresses. I've always loved staying active too! Ultimate frisbee is one of my favorites! Me and my friends used to get together all the time to play, until they all left for college and church missions. No biggie though, I play pretty much any sport with anyone! Everyday, I try to see what I can do to help brighten someone else's day. When people around me are happy, so am I. It's that simple. Ever since I was a kid, my biggest dream has been to become a songwriter and to put fun, good, uplifting music out in the world! I'm still persuing that dream. I know God wants me to take this gift He has given me and use it for good in some way. In all my life, I just love makin' a difference in whatever way I can! If ya wanna know more about me, 'bout Mormons, my family, etc. or anything! I'd love to talk to ya and get to know you better!
Why I am a Mormon
Even though I was born into the gospel, I had to gain a testimony of my own. I eventually had to have my own conversion story. Bit by bit, little by little throughout my life so far, my testimony has grown into the strong immovable foundation it is now. The happiness this gospel brings, and the joy I receive from living the gospel, which comes from me having a testimony, is what makes me love being Mormon! I have this great knowledge of where I came from, where I'm headed, and how to get there. Everything I learn in this gospel feels complete. So why would I ever stray away from this TRUE and AMAZING gospel?!?
How I live my faith
WITH COURAGE! I stand up for my standards no matter what the situation is. I know God is always watching and because I love Him, I don't ever wanna disappoint Him. Everyday I choose to make it a GOOD day. As long as I say my prayers, read my scriptures, and do something selfless its a GOOD day. I also write songs that have a good spiritual message behind them. Music is very influential, and I think the world needs more music that encourages us to do better things. I tell my family I love them all the time because, well, they are my family and I love them! All that I do in my life feels COMPLETE. one of my favorite quotes is: “Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.” -St. Francis of Assisi
