Hi I'm Jeremiah Van Dyke

I love God, my family, I enjoy witty humor, I'm a stereotypical Utah Mormon.

About Me

I am a 20 year old fellow who loves God. What brings me the most joy and satisfaction is helping people become better in their own lives. I have spent a lot of time in the service of others and I have learned that the greatest joy comes not in focusing on oneself, but on others. Apart from that, I always like putting smiles on people's faces and I love to have a good clean fun time!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into the church and it is where my parents took me every Sunday. However, I am still a Mormon because I have studied it out on my own and have asked God if what I was taught growing up is the truth. Through the feelings of the Holy Ghost in my heart I have come to know for myself that it is true. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness, as taught in this church, can bless everyone; so I in turn do all I can to share it with others.

How I live my faith

Jesus Christ taught, "If ye love me, keep my commandments." I do my best each day to follow the example of Jesus Christ and help others to be more like him. I know that I fall short all the time, but the great thing is that I can change and do better next time. My favorite thing about living the commandment is that I can have fun doing it. I am a fun person and in turn, I like to help others see that it is possible to keep the commandments and still have fun!

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Jeremiah Van Dyke
Although the church does a lot to help and assist those of our faith, a good deal of the efforts of the church are used to help those who are not of our faith. With a missionary force of over 83,000, the church does much to bring about good to all of Heavenly Father's children. Over 1 billion dollars have been donated to humanitarian causes by the church in the last 30 years. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Jeremiah Van Dyke
There are so many ways that we can increase our faith. I believe that no one can ever be close enough to God. There are always steps we can take, and things we can change to help us do that. God has given us so many things to help us develop faith in Jesus Christ. Some of those things include the Book of Mormon, the Bible, church, our families, prophets in these days, the list could go on and on. As we do these things, our faith in Jesus Christ increases. As we keep the commandments, more light and truth is given to us, and it grows brighter and brighter. I constantly look for things that I can change that will help me build faith in my Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
