Hi I'm Jeremy

I have lived in Eastern Idaho my whole life. I am a farm boy; and I enjoy the work. And I am a Mormon! Boooyah!!

About Me

I am the youngest of five kids. I live in a farming community, and have worked for local farmers and the county. I enjoy the work, yes even though it can get tedious. When I was fourteen I became an eagle scout. I went to small high school Amazingly they let me graduate and with high honors and have attended college to become a mechanical engineer with aerospace emphasis. I love to see how to improve and innovate stuff. It is awesome!!! Out of all the things I have done and accomplished, being part of my family is far my favorite. What I learned from my family enables me to apply new ideas.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I am a Mormon is because of what I know about my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that his teachings are true both in the past and now. He suffered all the pains beyond imaginable. I know he wants be as He is and to have me live with Him in happiness. Since I know Christ loves me and does everything he can for me, I do what I can for Him. I also know that He didn't Suffer the Atonement just for his church to be lost after His death. We NEED modern revelation and ordinances to be saved. Through His grace, He is aware of this need, so He has given the prophet Joseph Smith the priesthood, the answer to our need. If we come to know Christ in heart and serve Him , never try to dishonor His name, He will provide a way, a church, for us to worship Him and live with him. He does this because He always has and He cares. I know if we are deeply concerned which church is true He will answer us. It doesn't matter which ones we pray about, but the Church of Latter Day Saints is the true church. It is directed by our Heavenly Father. I know this church is true because I know who Christ is, not perfectly but little by little everyday. And I know who He wants me to be. He wants me to be as He his someday. And His Church is how we learn, worship, and become like Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by honoring my Lord. We learn that we emulate those who we honor. Everyday I try to become more like our Eternal Father and Christ. It always is easier when you are around those who have the same goals as you do. Then you can help each other to live righteously. Our surroundings influence who we become. Service is an outward way to honor Christ. Then reading the scriptures and praying is an inward way to strengthen my soul. I have served as a priesthood holder and as president. These callings gave me more opportunities to serve and grow. As I honor Him and emulate Him I get to now who Christ truely is.
