Hi I'm Jared

I'm a track and cross country athlete, I love biological sciences, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jared and I love to learn about anything I can. I am especially interested in natural sciences, and read and research the living world as much as I can. I also love to run, it is one of my other great passions and I plan on pursuing a college running career when I return from my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have never felt anything but happiness and love from members I have known and because I see how much easier following the gospel of Jesus Christ makes people's lives. Just as following the laws of the land keeps us free from physical bondage, following the laws set forth by the Savior keeps us free from spiritual bondage, and helps us avoid heartache and sorrow on our journey through mortality. I have never been able to find, in any of the teachings of this church, an illogical or loop-holed doctrine. I know that the Savior Jesus Christ lives and that he died to ransom the souls of men. I know that as we repent of past mistakes, with real intent to improve ourselves and with true sorrow, we can obtain a remission of our sins, and that we can be washed clean again. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is our Heavenly Father's true and living church on the earth today, and I know that it's members and authorities hold the same authority and priesthood that Jesus conferred upon his apostles during his mortal ministry. I know that as God's children follow the gospel, they will be blessed with happiness in this life and for eternity. I have seen the happiness that this gospel has brought to me and others. the trials of our mortal experience are so much easier to face when we rely on the atonement of Christ. i know these things are true, and I bear this testimony in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I am an assistant leader for the 11 year old scouts in our ward, and I help teach sunday school lessons for that same group of boys. I always look for opportunities to share what I know with these boys and with others I interact with frequently.
