Hi I'm Jeremy

I've lived in Provo my whole life. For the next two years I'll be serving a mission in Costa Rica. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports, music, and food. If there's a sport out there there that I haven't played, I want to try it. I grew up playing soccer, then I started playing football, then I played basketball on a junior league. I played football through all of high school, and my sophomore year I started playing volleyball, and my junior year I joined the track team. I love going on drives and listening to music. I got my first job my sophomore year and have been saving my money for the important stuff like college, an LDS mission, and hopefully marriage. I love meeting and getting to know new people. I am on my school's student government and the president of the Key Club and a board member to the Interact Club and Anti-Bully Club. I'm currently preparing to serve a mission in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been Mormon. Not till my freshman year in high school did I truly start living the gospel though. I went to seminary and through hearing others share their testimonies I found out that we all have our own difficulties and problems that are tailored for us individually. I realized that we all have the ability to help each other through these dark times in our lives. I remember sitting in class one day and listening to others their share experiences and I began to feel a calm that I had never felt before. I knew that no matter how bleak the situation may seem, we will always make it through with our Saviors help. Having the assurance and knowing for myself that Jesus Christ lives and wants all of us to be the happiest we can be is an amazing knowledge. I know that this gospel is true and it just takes a simple act of faith to find out for yourself. Faith turns into action and by acting on Christ's will you will come to know that this gospel is very true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be an example to others. One of my favorite quotes is, "Don't shine so others can see you. Shine so that through you, others can see Him." - C.S. Lewis. I try to be a leader to others as well as a friend so if anyone is ever feeling down I can help pick them up. As a younger kid, my parents never forced my to go to church but I still went anyway. I knew I always wanted to serve a mission but I never really knew why. I am now starting to understand the reasons. I have been blessed with faith and to have the courage to stand still when others walk away.
