Hi I'm Jarith

I grew up in Tonasket Wa. I have gone through school graduating high school with an AA degree. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the middle child in our family of five. I have been working towards going on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and have raised some money to get myself prepared for this. i will be leaving my family on Jan. 30 2013 to serve the lord for two years. i am going to becoming home to become an engineer i will be going to school for a double major in electrical and mechanical engineering. i love tinkering with things and i love to be with my friends. My life has been centered around church and doing good for others and showing them the joy that comes from a knowledge of the savior. i cannot wait to show unto all the people in tempe that they have a loving Heavenly father and that they can find joy in this life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the atonement of Jesus Christ and the great roll that it plays in this church. The whole church is centered around families and the atonement. But what differs from other religions and ours is that we need to do our part to be forgiven. Christ suffered for our sins he has done his part it is time that we do ours we must confess, and forsake to be forgiven and the church knows that we are not perfect but that we are striving to become perfect. and i feel love and peace when at church. I would like to bear my testimony to all who read this that i know my redeemer lives and that he loves each and every one of us. I know that we are all children of a loving Father in Heaven and that God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are all seperate beings with one purpose which is to bring to pass the imortality and eternal life and joy of man. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that he did see God the father and his son Jesus Christ. I know that through Joseph God restored his church upon the earth. I know The Book of Mormon to be the word of God and also the Bible to be the word of God that through the two records the truth is made known unto us. I know that as God is the same yesterday today and forever that he has ordained a Prophet, and Apostles to lead his church even as in the days of old. I know that the Savior Jesus Christ suffered and Atoned for the sins of the world that trough him we might be able to find our way back to our Father in Heaven. I know that the Temple is truly the House of the Lord and that the things that take place there are not secret but sacred that all who bow before God and become worthy may enter and find everlasting joy and happiness. I know that this Church is lead by God for the spirit pierces the hearts of all who are willing to sincerely search for his truth and that through this church you will find the joy of everlasting life and happiness. In The Holy Name Of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I try hard to help with things in the community. I have worked with my father on county vehicles and helped with serving through service projects. I have had a great example set through my parents who have lived the gospel principles. i love to teach others of the joy and peace that they can find by coming unto Jesus Christ and become clean through his eternal sacrifice the atonement. I love to work with the youth in my small branch i am a young mens councilor and i have loved seeing them grow and mature. I just love the gospel and its sweet and simple lifestyles and joys.
