Hi I'm Jared Michael Hollingsworth

I grew up in Ohio. I have dual citizenship with the United States and Canada.

About Me

My name is Jared Hollingsworth. I'm 19 years old and have recently been called to serve a 2 year mission In Daejeon Korea. I enter the MTC on January 23rd. My pre-mission life consisted of a variety of things. I attended River Valley High School during my junior and senior year of high school. My freshmen and sophomore year I actually attended The University of Rio grande after testing into college classes.During all four I attended early morning seminary. I ran HS XC & track. I was a co-captain for my senior year in Track and my Favorite event was the 800m run.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. My whole family is currently active in the church, so it has always been a part of my life. However, growing up I always had questions. I knew that you could not live your life after another person's beliefs, nor did I want to. When i was in the 6th grade I decided to read The Book of Mormon for myself in pray about it. In Moroni Chapter 10 verse 4, there is a promise that if you read it and ask with sincere intent about it's truth that you will receive an answer. i did this and i could no longer doubt the truth of this Book. To this day I have strong testimony that The Book of Mormon was translated by Joseph Smith through revelation from God and his Only Begotten son Jesus Christ. I also testify that there are prophets on this Earth today who testify of a loving Heavenly Father and our redeemer and savior, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have always been active in church service projects. I love to get out into my community and serve my fellow neighbors. Service has always been and will always be a big part of my faith. I attended four years of early morning seminary throughout High School. Essentially what this ,means is that i would get up every morning before school and attend a Sunday school class.
