Hi I'm Jeremy

I love the outdoors. I love baseball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Some of the activities I enjoy doing are hunting for waterfowl, fishing, camping and just about anything in the outdoors. I also enjoy playing and watching sports, I love athletics. Spending time with my many brothers and sister is always a top priority. We are always up for a fun trip to the mountains or a favorite fishing spot. I am currently serving a mission in the Washington Vancouver Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the happiness it brings my family and I cannot be explained. The truths and doctrine we have learn and come to know bring such a warm feeling to my heart. The gift of the Holy Ghost is a gift I would never give up. His companionship has warned me and prompted me to do things in urgency and in love, and they continue to guide me in these tumultuous times we live in today. I will always live my life in such a way that I may be worthy of his influence. I grew up in the Church, but have truly been converted after the countless witnesses I've had of its truthfulness. I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know that he is our Savior and Redeemer and loves all of us on the Earth no matter of age, health condition, or race. I know that this Church can bring more happiness to my life than any other influence. I know that I may one day live in the eternities alongside our Savior with my family and my future eternal companion and children. I look forward to the days that I may raise a family in this Church and bring happiness into their lives. I'm grateful for the opportunity I have to serve a mission for Him. For I know he cares about every man and woman alive and wants them to spend eternity in His presence.

How I live my faith

In my community I have had the opportunity to spend large amounts of time with other Mormons my age. Whether we went bowling, made knives, or went on scenic hikes in the grandeur of the Tetons, we always enjoyed each others company. I became an Eagle Scout along with many other young men. Our great leaders were focused on helping us to accomplish our goals and we became a very tightly knit group. We also had the opportunity to provide service for those in need and performed many projects such as laying sod for a widow, filling sandbags for possible flooding, and raking leaves for the elderly. I was able to be a sort of youth leader for our group and in doing so I relished the time I spent with such great young men and leaders. It was great to work alongside a band of brothers who had the same goals, values, and standards and to witness the great potential each one of us had. Although we were all unique in our own way with different hobbies, we came together and supported one another's interests. The Church not only kept us out of trouble, it helped us to create great friendships and taught us the importance of every person. We learned to settle differences and get along with those we might not have.
