Hi I'm Jared Peterson

I'm a writer, a singer, a reader, and I've been a librarian page. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in one small town after another, all north of Las Vegas. I kind of lived a boring life, but it got slightly better the more I figured out what I was supposed to do in the world. After I wrote my first book and published it, I got my mission letter and I felt excited that maybe I'm going down the right path. I am currently serving my mission out in the DC area, in Fredericksburg. The area in which I currently serve is the White Oak area.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, so I have never really known anything else. I've heard of other churches and such, but it always seemed to me that they always get a few things wrong with how they worship the Lord. Though I really gained a testimony after going on a trip back east. We visited the grove where Joseph Smith prayed. I felt that because of his sacrifice, we can learn the truth about the Lord and his Son.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through music. I directed the music for the Singles at our church, and I love to see so many people share the power of music with the Hymns we sing. I also live my faith through my writing, which I love more than anything in the world. Without the power of words, almost everything would be meaningless.
