Hi I'm Jared Barney

I grew up in Mesa Arizona, I love to Long board, and I love to talk to people.

About Me

I am a long board loving, beach cruising, swimming pool jumping, and a camping kind of guy. Pretty much any thing that can be long boarded too, I am there! My favorite types of food are Chinese, and Hispanic. Something about tortilla, beans and rice bettered this world. I like to stay active, and play outside. I am doing my best to pick up the Spanish language, and am excited for the ever changing word we call life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know it is the true Church! My whole life I was trying to live the way I wanted too, but I soon realized, that was not the plan God had for me. I first gained a Testimony of my Savior Jesus Christ, and tried my best to understand what he really did for all of us. I soon started feeling so much more love for all my Brothers and Sisters around me in the world. Through my Testimony in Jesus Christ, I built more Testimonies about the Church, The Book of Mormon, Tithing, and just about everything we know to be true. I will be the first one to say I am not Perfect, and never have been, and I made my fair share of mistakes in the past, but I do know that Jesus Christ, our Elder Brother, died for us. I also know, that through his sacrifice we can all be changed to be a little more like him! If I could bare testimony on why I am a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, it would be because I came to the knowledge of the Atonement, and all the love that is found there. I felt that love from every member and leader of this Church, and I know that if I do my best, I can hopefully spread that love to others as well. This is the right place to be if you are looking for happiness, and love. This is the Savior's Church!

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving my 2 year mission in the great state of Texas. I have loved being part of many service projects, and helping anyone in the ward with what they need. I live my Faith by trying to be a good example like my Elder Brother Jesus Christ. I know that if we all acted a little more like him, we would be living in happier place!
