Hi I'm Jared Lake Knudson

I am serving Full-time as an Missionary in the Minneapolis, Minnesota Mission. (May 2013 - May 2015)

About Me

I am 20 years old. I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was raised into the LDS church and have been a member since I was 8. I love playing sports, hiking, running, swimming, biking (mountain biking), river rafting, skiing, snowboarding and really anything that can be done in a mountain or outdoors. :) I am currently serving as an lds missionary in the Minnesota, Minneapolis mission. I started serving on May 15th 2013 and will continue to serve until May 13th 2015. I love the Gospel!!! Jesus Christ is my savior and redeemer. My family is all mormon. We are very kind, fun-loving people. My brother returned from his mission in Oslo Norway in June 2013. My parents both served missions. My dad served in Australia, Melbourne...and my mom served in Italy, Milan. I am grateful for the blessings that I've received from being a part of this church! I love Life and the many adventures within!

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon brings meaning into my life. I love living a happy, joyful life, built upon the Rock of My Redeemer. The Gospel of Christ has been restored to the earth in its fullness. By living the teachings of His Gospel, I know that I will be happy and I will gain eternal life and be able to live with my family, Heavenly Father and elder brother, Jesus Christ, once again... for time and all eternity!!! That is why I am a Mormon! :D

How I live my faith

I strive to follow the example of Jesus Christ each day. I am a steadfast, faithful young man. I love serving everybody!! As a missionary, I am acting in God's name. I work to improve myself each and everyday. There is nothing I'd rather be doing at this time in my life. I love sharing the gospel with others. The blessings I've received and the happiness and joys of this glorious gospel compel me to share it with others!
