Hi I'm Jeremy

I'm a computer programmer. I'm a father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost I am a husband and a father. I spend most of my time caring for my children and helping them with their needs. Although this can be very tiring, I know that it's the most important thing I can do. Watching these kids grow up, I realize how much the small things I do affect their whole lives. I want my kids to grow up happy, and develop into well centered, good adults. I work as a computer programmer. For many years, I was trained in mathematics and science -- both the physical and social sciences. I have continued to study these disciplines since finishing school. This has affected the way I look at all problems -- at work and in life. In what spare time I have, I read books of all kinds (history, science, science fiction, kids fiction, religion), I watch TV and movies, etc. I love best long distance running and swimming, but rarely get the chance.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I studied, lived it, and prayed for an answer. As Jesus said, "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." Through personal experience, I have seen that living Jesus's teachings (as found in the Bible, Book of Mormon, and through His living prophets) brings lasting happiness and peace -- even through trials. I have felt the Holy Ghost answer my prayers many times, and know these feelings come from God.

How I live my faith

I try in all actions to follow Jesus's example. I try to look at coworkers, friends, neighbors, church associates, and strangers on the street as children of God. I try to feel the Savior's love for them. I try to remember these things in my interactions with others. Of course I make mistakes in this. At times, I lose my temper. I sometimes find my own hurrying the most important thing. This is why I am grateful for Jesus's sacrifice: It can make up for my failings as long as I continue to try. I try to become like Jesus -- not that I will ever be perfect as He was, but because I can become better than I would have been. In doing so, I hope to bless my family, and those around me.
