Hi I'm Jarom

I grew up in lots of different places. I have lots of friends. I love my life. I`m a Mormon.

About Me

Man, it`s hard to say how much I like music. Classic rock and alternative are my favorites. I like going camping and adventuring as long as I`m with someone. I like being someone`s reason to smile. I enjoy working hard and having something productive to do.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I grew up in the church and for lots of people, that could be taken to mean that I`m only here because it`s where I started. But, that`s not how it is. We are always encouraged to ask and seek a response from God as to which church we should be a part of so, that`s what I did. Funny thing is that, after learning that and hearing it my whole life, I had never done it. I just sort of accepted it and was here because that`s what I grew up with. So, one day, I did just that. I asked God, if I was in the right place and more specifically about The Book of Mormon (which is where the nick-name "Mormons" comes from anyway) and it took a real desire to know and work on my part but I came to know in about a week that I was in the right place. The answer(s) that Heavenly Father gave me came lots of different ways but I always felt something different and special in my heart. I felt tingles kind of. Like, my hair stood on end and I got excited and then that feeling would go away just as quickly as it came. It always came though, when i was thinking, talking or reading about some aspect of the church. I know that good things come from God. All good things. Those feeling that I had at that time were good and I know that they were given to me by the Holt Ghost who testifies and teaches of the things that are of God. I`m still learning and will learn much more but the facts, I can`t deny. I know that, through those feelings of love and individual attention directly from a loving father in heaven were real and they will always be there to support me. Pretty awesome. There is a God and He loves me. He loves you too.

How I live my faith

I served a mission for my church in Brazil and it was then that I realized that when I`m learning about Christ or our Heavenly Father that I`m my happiest. It`s in them, that i find true joy. Something that lasts you know? I like being asked about it even if they may be crazy questions because I enjoy sharing what I know.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Jarom
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He is our Savior and Redeemer. Without His sacrifice and example, we would not be able to receive forgiveness for our sins. We believe that He suffered and died for us and that this great expression of love and charity is called the atonement. We believe that he resurrected after 3 days of being crucified and that through Him, all men can repent and return to Him and our Father in Heaven after this life. Show more Show less
