Hi I'm Jared

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently working to save money for my mission. I enjoy sports and spending time with family and friends. I have been called to serve in the Mexico Monterrey East Mission and leave on March 6th, 2013.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the knowledge and power that I receive from being a member of this church. I love having such a close relationship to my Heavenly Father. I can communicate with him whenever I need to and I know that he will ALWAYS have an answer for me. It may not be the answer that I want to hear, but he knows what is best for me. I know that my Savior Jesus Christ died for my sins and made it possible for me to be forgiven of any mistakes that I make. I love that I can feel the warmth, comfort, and guidance of the Holy Ghost as he prompts me what I should and should not do. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who restored this gospel to the earth and translated the Book of Mormom. It has been given to us in these challenging times as a guide. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the only true and living prophet on this earth. Most of all, I am a Mormon because of the happiness that this church brings to not only my life but also to the people around me. I have prayed to my Heavenly Father many times and through the Holy Ghost, I have had a confirmation that this is the true church.

How I live my faith

I am a leader in the boy scouts organization and work with boys who are 11 years old. I also visit a few of my neighbors every month to share a spiritual lesson with them and check how they are doing.
