Hi I'm Jentry Diederich

I'm Alaska Grown and living in Utah, I'm an Athlete, I'm a future father maybe... I'm a Missionary in England, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in the church since birth. I have both my parents John and Sharee, and a younger bro named Jed. When I was about 14 years old I stopped attending church. About the time I was 17 my family decided to move to Utah to be closer to family. Once we were in Utah my family started to attend church again. It was one of the best things I've ever done. I love to play sports. My favorite sports are football, basketball and wrestling. I also enjoy wake boarding and surfing even though I'm not the best at it. I will pretty much play any sport known to man. My favorite sports teams are the Denver Broncos and the Miami Heat. My favorite thing to do in the world though would have to be hanging out with my family and friends. I like to have a laugh and just a great time with people who enjoy my company. There is something special that you get from being around people you sincerely love and it is one of the greatest feelings ever. I am currently serving my mission in Manchester England. I am so excited to be in England for 2 years to share what I believe to others. I have served so far in Blackburn, Barrow-In-Furness, Chorley, Stockport, Chester, Moreton and I am currently serving in Manchester YSA! After I am done serving my mission in Manchester England, I would like to attend university and eventually become a Physical Therapist. My life long dream is to be a Physical Therapist or Athletic Trainer for a Professional Sports team. I love being around sports if you can't tell.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church with my family. I found out that it was the true church on the earth by searching the scriptures and praying to know that it is true. There is no doubt in my mind that the things that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the commandments that Heavenly Father gave us. Even though it may be tough at times, I just have to remember that I need to do my best to do what my Heavenly Father wants of me and repent when I make a mistake. That way he can reward me by me living with him and the rest of my family for all of eternity and not just this life on Earth. I love the idea of my family being together forever for all eternity. I'm so glad that I'm serving a mission in England so I can share those same messages with them. I also attend church as much as possible, do scripture study regularly and say my prayers daily. I feel that if you do those things you will be better prepared for life and be able to grow closer to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
