Hi I'm Jordan

I'm from Utah. I'm a jazz saxophone player, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I served a mission in Cochabamba, Bolivia. I love the people, the food, the music, the culture, and everything about Bolivia. I'm also a musician. I study saxophone in college, and play with small groups at weddings, parties, and restaurants. I play a little piano and guitar on the side. I also enjoy working with cars. Its a fun, but expensive hobby.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, it started with my parents (and their parents, and theirs, and theirs, etc. It goes back a while....) I grew up in the church, like a lot of people, but realized at one point that my parents' testimony wasn't enough. I had a lot of doubts for a long time, and decided for a while that maybe the "Mormon" thing wasn't for me. I realized after living that way for a while that I wasn't as happy as I was before. I remember deciding that I needed to know whether or not this Church was for me, and more importantly; whether it was true. By studying the Book of Mormon, and most importantly, through prayer, the Lord confirmed to me that this church is true. I then got to take the next 2 years telling people in Bolivia about it. I'm a Mormon because I have learned for myself that this is God's true church

How I live my faith

I work in the temple, which is a huge blessing. There is such a peaceful feeling in the Lord's house. I also teach classes on Sunday. I teach a class that helps people prepare to serve missions, and teach all the men in the ward about once a month. I am also a ward missionary, and work visiting members of the ward trying to help the missionaries find new people to teach. I'm a firm believer in the principle of "lifting where you stand" or, in other words, simply doing the simple things assigned to you. You don't have to try and do anything big or world-changing. You just have to simply do your duty with the few things that the Lord has asked you to do.
