Hi I'm Jeremy

I've grown up in Salt Lake City. I love to create! I illustrate. I play the guitar. I write music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in SLC, UT all my life. School has never been my thing, but I love to learn. It's weird, I know. I have lots of random talents, but I'm not a highly motivated person. One of these days I will do something amazing... I hope. I don't care about fame or money. I just want to use my talents and abilities to help spread the gospel and be a vessel for inspiration.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints(Mormons). I was baptized at the age of 8 and have always attended church meetings with my family. Not too long ago, I turned 19. At the time, this was the minimum age when young men could go on missions. Most young men raised in "The Church" turn in their paperwork for their mission as soon as possible. This way they can leave soon after their 19th birthday. I, however, was not so quick about it. I had always been a practicing member of my church. My parents taught me well. But... something was holding me back. I wanted to go on my mission because my family and friends expected me to. However, I wasn't sure If I truly believed what I was going to be teaching. I kept this to myself for about a year. Finally, in a one-on-one meeting with my Bishop, I told him how I felt. He responded like any pastor or church leader should. With patience, understanding, and wisdom. He told me to read the Book of Mormon and to pray and ask if it was true. I knew right away that what he had told me was the right thing to do. I couldn't deny that. I tried to put it off at first, but the Holy Spirit kept pushing me. One day, I finally sat down on a chair in my room where I would normally play my guitar for hours and forget about my responsibilities. I truly studied the book of Mormon then. When I felt I had read enough, I knelt on the carpet and began to pray. After an hour, the words of Elder Jeffery R. Holland came to me, "You know more than you think you know." I began to realize again what I already knew. God lives and loves me. God hears my prayers and answers them. Living the teachings of the prophets and The Book of Mormon is the right thing to do. It wasn't much, but It was enough. It was a good foundation. I want to give others the chance to know that God loves them and has a plan for them. That's why will go on a mission. And that's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am preparing myself to serve a mission and to teach the word of God.
