Hi I'm Jordan Wesemann

I'm from Colorado, USA! I'm a runner, and an outdoorsman. I'm a musician, and a juggler! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello from Taiwan! I am currently serving as a missionary on the beautiful "Ila Formosa". Before my missionary service, I studied for one year at the U.S. Air Force Academy in the also very beautiful state of Colorado. I have every intention of returning to military service following my mission, but I do love my current service in "The Lord's Army" (go Air Force!). My family is way close. I have 3 brothers- one older, a younger, and a twin! We have always loved doing things together; watching movies, playing games, sports, going out to eat, even shopping for mom we would all go together. We have since all grown up and moved out (except for lil' dude, finishing up high school), so our time together is few and far between. But we continue to support each other and do what we can. We are all very close in age, interests, even height! Except lil' dude, who has several inches on all of us! We're always there for each other, willing to sacrifice for each other. Their examples mean so much to me, probably more than they know! They are all way smarter than me, too. I always look forward to our reunions, which seem to be very seldom in recent years with our rather "around the world" circumstances. Things I love include the outdoors, music, random talents/hobbies, being above-ground-level, traveling, learning, and being with family and friends. I live an "on-the-go" lifestyle, making the most of every opportunity that comes my way, but always ready to stop for a sec to enjoy the view!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents built a family on a foundation of gospel principles, the teachings of Jesus Christ. And the farther I am from home (in time, and distance!) I have a greater appreciation for everything they did for me. I was able to see my dad's sacrifices as he deployed around the world for months at a time to defend his faith, family, and freedom. I saw my mom's equally great sacrifices at home to raise us 4 boys, attending to all our many activities and pursuits. What truly held it all together was the gospel of Jesus Christ. This foundation brought us much comfort and success, despite challenges that may come our way. Both of their sacrifices and examples are their living testimonies to not only the work required for success in and out of the home, but also how we can find the most joy in this life! My most fond memories of home are of the simple things: family dinners, movies, and activities we would do together. The gospel teaches us of the eternal significance of families, which emphasizes family fun! I love Homemade-Pizza Family-Movie Night!! When I left home for the next chapter of my life at the U.S. Air Force Academy, I never forgot the importance this church played in my family and in my life growing up. Through some experience, I came to know that the things I grew up wanting to believe were true actually were true, and that I wanted to dedicate my life to living the principles taught here. I knew that they would help me become the man I wanted to become-a man of God!

How I live my faith

An important part of faith is our personal relationship with Father in Heaven. This is why we invite everyone to read and pray and study so they can each gain a personal testimony that He lives and loves each one of His children (that's us!). We can each truly know for ourselves that it's true! For me, as I have studied the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have learned of the amazing blessings that come through service. I personally have not done anything miraculous like healing a blind man, but I have seen some great miracles through small simple deeds. It can be a simple as holding a door, offering a smile. Maybe it's a little deeper, such as military service or being a good friend. A special spirit is felt as we minister and administer to the needs of others. And this is how I live my faith! Through service. We have countless opportunities to serve using our various talents, gifts, and abilities. When we start looking for opportunities to serve, we find that they come more often! We may not be able to see Heavenly Father right now, but as sure as he loves and wants to help us, he often will do so through our service towards others. He has blessed each one of us with a unique set of gifts and abilities so that we live, love and serve like no one else. Christ set the perfect example. I am far from perfect, but I live everyday with faith that I can become more like him by studying His life and doing the things he did! And that's how I LIVE my faith!
