Hi I'm Jared Teeples

I love this Gospel! I love my family. I play guitar. I am a servant of the Lord in the California Ventura Mission, & I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was baptized when I was 8 years old. I am the oldest of 7 children and I love it! I am currently a servant of our Lord in the Great California Ventura Mission. I have lived in Utah my whole life, living mostly in Richfield and Elk Ridge. I have been blessed to have wonderful family members and friends in my life to help me keep on the straight and narrow path. I love my Savior for everything he did for me. God has given me all that I have; my family, friends, and all my talents and abilities.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church, and I love it. My parents have both been members all of their lives, and I can't tell you how great of a blessing that has been in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best person I can be. I try to keep the commandments as much as I possibly can. I love serving others, and I love the happiness it brings to people.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Jared Teeples
A testimony is an individuals personal testament of what they believe or know. There is no right or wrong testimony, it is just your own personal witness of what you know. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Jared Teeples
There are an endless number of things that show that there is a God. For example, the human body; it is so complex and precise that it is kind of crazy to believe it all happened just by chance. The beauty of this world is another manifest of Him. Some scenery and parts of this earth are simply incredible. His holy houses are also manifests of His living. Even just being around the Temple grounds you can feel the spirit and the peacefulness making it almost undeniable that He lives. Show more Show less
