Hi I'm Jason Allred

I grew up in Virginia, and am currently attending Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of six children. I love cars, home design, and my friends and family. I'm currently attending Brigham Young University, following in the footsteps of my five older siblings. In high school, I was in marching band on the Alto Sax, and played Oboe in concert band. I also participated in both Chamber and Jazz Choirs.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, because I've received my own witness of the gospel's truth. When I was seven years old, my father passed away. It was hard for me to understand why, but I eventually learned to accept God's plan and His timing. I know that through the power of the restored Priesthood, families can be together forever through the sealing ordinance performed in His holy temples. Being a member of this church has brought me so much joy, comfort and peace. I know that through obedience to God's commandments and through the power of the Atonement, we can all return to our Father in Heaven once again.

How I live my faith

As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I've had countless opportunities to serve my community and fellow church members. Boy Scouts of America is the Church's Young Men's program, and I was an active participant, and eventually received my Eagle Scout award. In Boy Scouts, I had many opportunities to give back to our community with beautification projects and meaningful service to the less fortunate. I also teach a gospel doctrine class at church for young men my age. Through this class, I help others relate gospel principles to their own lives, and invite others to come closer to Christ. Currently, I am serving a full-time mission for the Church in Curitiba Brazil from June 2013 - June 2015. I love this gospel, and love sharing the joy that it has brought to my life with others.
