Hi I'm Jordan

I grew up in California in the small town of Exeter. I'm currently pursuing my dream as a filmmaker. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey there, I'm Jordan. I'm currently a freshman at BYU, trying to find out what direction I should take my life in. I love art, especially filmmaking, so I'm thinking about studying film and trying to make it as a director or screenwriter. I have been Mormon my entire life, and it's always been my goal to come to BYU, as all of my four brothers and sisters did before me. I'm currently involved in volunteer work that involves giving private music lessons to middle school aged kids who can't afford private lessons; I teach them to play guitar and sing.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe it helps us become better people. through both the teachings of Christ in the Bible, as well as the writings in the Book of Mormon. The atonement is everlasting, and it gives me comfort to know that whenever I mess up, I can be forgiven just by asking and repenting. Heavenly Father has immense power and love for us, His children, and being a Mormon has really taught me that. It's taught me to see the best in others, to give up a day or two of my time rather than spending that time doing something that would only benefit me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through maximizing my calling. I live my faith through bearing my testimony to others, especially those I am assigned to home teach. Home teaching has blessed me because it is an act of service that teaches you to love people you might not have had the chance to meet. I also live my faith through the volunteer work that I do. I have had many years of professional training in both guitar playing and singing, and could probably charge for private lessons, but I choose to give to those less fortunate, who have a dream of making music but can't afford private lessons. More important than just teaching these kids music though, is the relationship that develops. I am my student's mentor, he looks up to me, both as a teacher and a friend, so I strive to make myself available to whatever he might need, first as a friend, then as a teacher.
