Hi I'm Jared

I was born and raised in Louisiana. I love being a member of this church! I love doing service and helping others.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful woman and have an awesome son. I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with a bachelors degree in Sociology in 2009. I love the outdoors and participating in outdoor activities. I am a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and anything having to do with his works. I love to read and play video games. I am a big fan of the New Orleans Saints football team. I don't watch much television, but my favorite TV shows are Duck Dynasty, and Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a family that were members of this church. I stayed in the church because the gospel helps me to lead a happy, fulfilled life.

How I live my faith

I take every opportunity to do service and help others out. I live by the standards of my church and try to be the best example I can be to others. As a leader in the youth program of my ward, I have the opportunity to teach the young men about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I encourage them to live the standards of the church and use their agency to do good things. As a leader, I have done my best to involve the boys in service opportunities. We have done many things to help the elderly members and single sisters in our ward. I go out to visit the families I am responsible for home teaching. I share a gospel message and look for ways to help them. As a father and husband, I make sure that we hold family prayers each day, as well as reading from the scriptures. We have a weekly family home evening, where we share a gospel message with our family. I do my best to regularly attend the temple to do work there.
