Hi I'm Forrest Jensen

I grew up in Elk Grove, CA. I love sports. I'm a missionary in the Omaha Nebraska Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Elk Grove, CA all of my life. I love to play sports and my two favorite sports teams are the San Francisco 49ers and the San Francisco Giants. I love to chill with friends, laugh and have a good time. The outdoors are where I love to be, whether I am swimming or hiking, it doesn't matter I am in the sun! I am currently serving a mission Spanish speaking in the Nebraska Omaha Mission and I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

Im a Mormon not because I have extensive knowledge of the scriptures or of their doctrine but because I know what I have felt is true. I can't always put my finger on it but the warm comforting and reassuring feeling of being at church seems too right to be wrong. I look around at my peers and see their worldly problems and it reaffirms my beliefs and strengthens my testimony that what the world views as restricting rules that bind me from having fun, are actually what allows me to live a happier lifestyle. The road isn't always smooth but I know that if I try to be like Jesus and build my foundation on the rock of our redeemer, that I will be able to live with him someday.

How I live my faith

As a missionary I live my faith everyday by going out and teaching people. Before my mission though, I tried to lead by example and show people that it is possible to be cool and be a Mormon. You don't have to compromise your values in order to be liked by people. Know that people do respect your values and that you practice what you preach. The gospel brings such happiness to my life and by being happy all the time eventually people will want to know why in the world you are so happy.
