Hi I'm Jordan

I attend Brigham Young University-Idaho. I love the outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission. I have been called to serve in the Brasília Brazil Mission. I am excited to spread the gospel with the people of Brasília for the next two years. I have two older brothers and two younger sisters, yes being the middle child is always interesting. I love being outdoors and doing things like camping, mountain biking, rock climbing, and other such activities.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents grew up being members so naturally I grew up as a member as well but that is not why I'm a Mormon. Going to church every Sunday when I was growing up seemed like the right thing to do. When I was eight years old, I decided to get baptized. As I got older, I noticed the peace that the gospel brought to the home. I gained my testimony of the church gradually over time through living its teachings and reading the Book of Mormon. I have read the Book of Mormon and have prayed to know of its truth. Every time I prayed asking to know if I were true, I received the same answer that it is true. Because I know that the Book of Mormon is true, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and restored Christ's church back to the earth. I know that God speaks to us today through a living prophet and gives us guidance through him. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that through Him I can be with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to those around me. I am currently serving a full time mission. I have chosen to do so because this gospel has brought joy into my life that I otherwise would not have and I want to share that with the people I will be serving.
