Hi I'm Jarett

I am the middle child of step brothers and half sisters. I am swimmer, a student, and a husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family with many marriages that have provided many step and half siblings. Through this experience I have been able to see many views on life. The collection of views have provided me direction in life and has shaped me into who I am. I have become a student of many subjects, but as of now I am studying marketing.

Why I am a Mormon

Why not? A few years ago I followed a girl from my home state half way across the United States! I thought I was in love, but when arriving to my new home I found true love. True love stems from our Heavenly Father. As I began to experience Heavenly Father's love I began to discover who I am and what I can become. My perspective and goals were transformed and I discovered a new sense of belonging. I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) because I came to know God through His teachings that are shared through the church.

How I live my faith

Living my faith extends beyond volunteering a few hours here and there in the community. Living my faith takes place not only in the community, but also in my home. I try to be a supporting husband. Through following Christ's example in behavior, I try to exemplify love and help others reach their potential, including my wife. My behavior in my home extends outside of its doors. I work as a teacher to young adults in helping them grow in confidence and reliance upon the Lord. I help them understand their role as a child of God so they can help others experience similar realizations.

In whom should we have faith?

Jesus Christ is my Savior. I put my faith in Christ. Through the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I have come to know Jesus. I have come to rely upon Him and through Him I have been able to face trials and hardships. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Just a few years ago I did not know or understand who and what God is. Through reading scriptures such as the Book of Mormon I was able to understand who God is. I then began to pray. Prayer is communication with God. God answered my prayers through people, scriptures, and through His messenger the Spirit. I was also able to learn and receive answers through His messengers on earth, apostles and prophets. Show more Show less
