Hi I'm Jared Hartman

I grew up in Utah and California. I live in Pleasant Grove Utah. I am now serving my mission in the great Portugal Lisbon Mission!

About Me

My name is Jared, i live in Utah and i love it here. I am the oldest of 4 children and i am serving my mission in Lisbon Portugal. I love basketball, it is my favorite sport and favorite thing to do. I also enjoy other sports such as baseball and football. I like to be outside and be with my friends. When i return from my mission i plan to attend college and eventually medical school to become an Anesthesiologist. Family is everything to me, I don't know where i'd be without them. I am a die hard Los Angeles Lakers basketball fan! I also enjoy sleeping in, Disneyland and the beach. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my father was converted as a young boy so i was born into it. So growing up I went to Church for my parents. About the age of 17 I could not say that I knew the Church was true. I was confused and i had no clue where I was going in life. I turned my life around in the Gospel and I relied on the Atonement of Jesus Christ to get me to where i am now, serving as a missionary. I know that the Lord has a plan for each of his children, we just have to humble and search for it. I am a Mormon because I know this Church is true because I prayed about it and I personally received an answer. I am a Mormon or, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter - Day Saints because this is the only way we can find true happiness in this life and be with our families for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simple means. I live my life in a way im not ashamed of. I am kind to everyone. I do my best to attend all my meetings and church. I am currently serving a mission in Portugal for 2 years spreading the gospel.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jared Hartman
The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. It is the witness of Jesus that he really lived and that he is God's Son. It contains ancient accounts of the Prophets of old. The Book of Mormon goes hand in hand with the Bible. It compliments the other. The Book of Mormon has a Promise in it, (Moroni 10:4) that if you read the whole book and pray about it, you can know that it is true. Show more Show less
