Hi I'm Jordan Kocherhans

I write songs. I make movies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

From a very young age, I exhibited a very overactive imagination. I've always been writing stories, specifically with a film format in mind. I plan to study film starting at UVU when I return from my mission. I started learning guitar when I was in seventh grade so I could form a band with my friends, and I've enjoyed writing songs, singing, and playing the guitar ever since then. I also like acting in a musical format. I've starred as Captain Von Trapp in Sound of Music, Javert in Les Mis, and General Genghis Khan Shmitz in Seussical. I am a big fan of the shows Avatar: The Last Airbender, Top Gear (UK), and Star Trek. I'm also a very passionate Beatles fan, as well as other classic rock bands, including Rush, Styx, and Led Zeppelin.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a very personal, tailored-to-me witness of this Church's truth through the Holy Spirit which I cannot deny. I know we all lived as a spiritual family before this life, and chose to come down to this earth, inhabiting physical bodies, that we might gain experience, and become as our Father one day. We knew this journey would be difficult. We knew there would be opposition at every corner, and that people would not come flocking to the truth. We knew that the truth would be something we had to search, ponder, and pray about, inquiring whether it was the right way. There are many mysteries which we do not know the answers to, but we do know that a life lived like Christs is a life to strive for. I testify that the Book of Mormon is an additional witness of Christ, and should be read with the Bible as a complement and continuation of knowledge. We all too often embrace wickedness as necessary for happiness, and are constantly taught through the media and other sources that we should indulge these appetites. I testify to you that wickedness never was happiness. I testify that we can all be saved by our weakness through Jesus Christs Atonement, and that through our humility and faith, He can make weak things become strong unto us. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be like Christ every day, with a constant prayer in my heart. I go to Church every Sunday to partake of the Sacrament and renew the covenants I have made with God and and his Son. I participate in the weekly Young Men's and Scouting programs the church administers. The lessons I have learned in these programs, and the mentors I have befriended, have been essential to my testimony being strengthened and my motivation to developing a personal testimony. I've held the priesthood worthily, and it has blessed my life. I will be serving a two year mission to teach those of the world that have not heard the restored truth yet, and to give them the opportunity to accept it.
