Hi I'm jared

I'm a father of six, I'm a mechanic, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I currently live in Dundee Scotland but I have lived in England and America when I was younger but I finally settled down in Scotland which is where I met my beautiful wife Charlie (Charlene) and we have six wonderful children 2 boys and 4 girls, my family bring me so much joy and happiness and I couldn't imagine my life without them. I currently work as a mechanic for the biggest company in Scotland and have done since I was 17. Everyone I work with knows I go to church, the conversation usually starts with why I don't drink alcohol or tea or coffee, to which the answer usually comes from a colleague " cause he's a Mormon" I enjoy working out at the gym, where I used to go with a friend who is also a member, unfortunately I haven't been able to go recently due to a shoulder injury that has taken quite a long time to heal, but I look forward to getting back to it soon.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member for my whole life, but as a teenage boy made some bad choices and speed coming to Church, through the help and love of friends I came back shortly after and I will never forget how they helped me. My testimony came shortly after I came back to church, I was on holiday with the same friend that helped me return back to Church, my leg got stuck under a big American style caravan and I couldn't move at alll. I thought I would lose my leg when my grandfather ran to help me. I don't know how he did it but he managed to lift this caravan off of my leg. I was want hurt badly just a big bruise. The next day my friend, my grandfather and I tried to move this caravan but it wouldn't Budge not even an inch. At that point I knew someone was looking out for me. That's when I started to really believe and take it more seriously. I know this Church is true with every piece of my heart, I love it, I feel it burning inside every time I read through the scriptures, or when I go to church and hear the words of our leaders, I know we have a prophet on the earth that receives revelation from our heavenly father.

How I live my faith

Right now in the Church I hold a very big calling. I serve as a secretary to the man that runs our stake for the whole of the Dundee area, it keeps me very busy, that's how I like it. As members of the Church we all do our part to run the Church and do it voluntarily, the blessings I receive are amazing, I know it's because of my service to my heavenly father.
