Hi I'm Jared

I am a proponent of spontaneous adventures, I love sports and the outdoors, and I am a future business man!

About Me

I grew up in West Jordan, Utah. I graduated from Southern Utah University in Accounting and am now serving an LDS Mission in Utica, New York! I love sports, the outdoors, and most of all sharing the gospel and inviting others to come unto Christ! I plan on continuing my education when I return from my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I fell away from the LDS church after graduating from High School. A few years into my education at SUU in Cedar City, Utah I met some great Mormon friends. These friends never asked me to go to church or talked about religion around me but it was by their mere great nature which I wanted to reflect myself. I started attending church again and formed a strong testimony for the first time. I used the Atonement to become clean and free from my sins and have never been more happy in my life. I know that this happiness is everlasting rather than temporary and it has truly changed my life. I am very grateful for other blessings I know I can receive such an eternal family and the opportunity to reach exaltation. I want to extend blessings, everlasting happiness, and eternal families unto others and in doing so have chosen to serve an LDS Mission. I am now serving in the New York, Utica mission and love inviting others to come unto Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be the best example I can be to my family, friends, and those around me. I do this by implementing gospel principles into my life and adhering to the word of God and His prophets. One of my favorite scriptures regarding this is, "Therefore let your light so shine before this people, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven" - 3 Nephi 12:16. I also look for ways to serve everyone around me. To help people have a better day and come closer to Christ. I am currently a missionary serving in the New York, Utica Mission!
