Hi I'm Jay Shepherd

HELLO I’M JAY I’M A GOLFER(duffer), A READER, GRANDFATHER, AND I’M A MORMON

About Me

I AM A GRANDFATHER, EVEN A GREAT GRANDFATHER WITH MANY SPECIAL AND EXCITING CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN. I AM STILL TRYING TO PARTICIPATE IN SPORTS AND ANYTHING ELSE THAT WILL HELP TO KEEP ME YOUNG AND ABLE TO KEEP UP. I AM ALSO AN AVID READER AND COIN COLLECTOR AND HAVE SPREAD THOSE ADVENTURES TO MANY OF MY FAMILY. I HAVE TRAVELLED TO MANY EXCITING PARTS OF THE WORLD AND HAVE HELPED MY FAMILY TO HAVE THAT SAME TRAVEL BUG. I LOVE TO TELL STORIES COMING FROM MY TRAVELS, SPORT EXPERIENCES , FAMILY OUTINGS AND MY OWN VERY VIVID IMAGINATION.

Why I am a Mormon

I HAVE BEEN A MORMON MY ENTIRE LIFE. I KNOW THAT MY HEAVENLY FATHER HAS TAUGHT AND GUIDED ME AS FAR BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER. IT HAS BEEN A VERY SWEET EXPERIENCE BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT I GET MYSELF INTO(GOOD AND NOT SO) HE IS ALWAYS THERE TO LIFT ME AND GUIDE ME. I KNOW THE CHURCH IS TRUE AND THAT WE ARE LED MY INSPIRED AND SPIRITUAL BROTHERS AND SISTERS. THE BOOK OF MORMON HAS BEEN THE BOOK I TREASURE READING MORE THAN ANY OTHER. I HAVE LEARNED MANY HELPFUL AND INSPIRING MESSAGES AND EXPERIENCES THAT HAVE HELPED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND PUTS ME IN MINDSET TO RECEIVE OTHER MESSAGES THAT I NEED AT THAT TIME. BEING A MORMON HAS HELPED ME TO ACCOMPLISH SO MANY THINGS IN MY LIFE THAT NOT ONLY HAVE HELPED ME, BUT MY FAMILY AND MANY OTHERS THAT I HAVE COME IN CONTACT WITH THROUGHOUT MY ENTIRE LIFE. I LOVE THE CHURCH AND ITS PEOPLE.

How I live my faith

I HAVE SERVED IN MANY CALLINGS AND AM NOW SERVING IN A VERY SPECIAL CALLING. I HAVE COME TO KNOW THAT SERVING IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT. I HAVE BEEN SERVED AND KNOW THE BLESSINGS THAT HAS BROUGHT TO ME AND SO I WANT TO SERVE OTHERS SO I CAN SHARE THOSE BLESSINGS WITH OTHERS. FAMILIES ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF OUR CHURCH. I TRY TO LOVE AND SERVE MY FAMILY MEMBERS AND WE IN TURN REACH OUT TO SERVE OUR FRIENDS, NEIGHBORS AND THOSE WE MEET IN OUR DAILY ACTIVITIES. I TRY TO LIVE THE GOSPEL, AS I HAVE BEEN TAUGHT, ON A CONSTANT AND DAILY BASIS. WHEN I DO THAT, I FEEL MORE CARING FOR ALL THOSE AROUND ME, NO MATTER WHO THEY ARE. WHEN THAT HAPPENS I AM HAPPY AND I WANT TO HELP THOSE AROUND BE HAPPY TOO. THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST IS MY LIFE.
