Hi I'm Jarin

I grew up just outside of Brigham City Utah on a small farm surrounded by nature and my family. I love to play sports!

About Me

I grew up always being involved in sports. I played baseball, soccer, football, and basketball. I have always enjoyed being active and competitive. I also loved to work with my dad and my grandpa on the farm. Whether it be irrigating, chopping corn, hauling rocks, feeding the cows, or digging post holes I loved spending time with them. I am the middle child of 5. I have an older sister and brother that are both happily married. I have a younger sister and a younger brother also. I love my mom and dad and my siblings very much.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have read, pondered, and prayed about the Book of Mormon, asking Heavenly Father if its all true and if Joseph Smith is a true prophet. I have felt God answer my prayers and I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith is a prophet. I look at the fruit that has come since the boy Joseph prayed seeking answers from God. Truth was restored as God called Joseph to be a prophet in these latter days. I know that we have a living prophet today, Thomas S. Monson. As I strive daily to live the principles taught in the church and to read, study, pray and serve others my life is filled with the love of God and I am happy. There are many more reasons why I am a Mormon but one of the main reasons I continue to live the way I do is because I love Jesus Christ. He has done so much for me personally and being a part of His restored church has given me an opportunity to give back to him. I have experienced the greatest joy in my life as I have done my best to live the gospel and share it with others. Although I am not perfect I know that God loves me and that Jesus Christ is full of grace and mercy towards all of us.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I live my faith every day by doing my best to be obedient to the commandments. I live my faith by reading the scriptures everyday and by praying to Heavenly Father frequently. As missionaries we get to teach others about the things that we believe. Everything we do as missionaries is focused on helping others. We teach and serve others, helping them to grow their faith in Jesus Christ. As a missionary I try to live my faith by helping others to develop and grow theirs.
