Hi I'm Jared Mackie

I am a husband, college student, and athlete and I'm Mormon.

About Me

I am a outdoors persons, i love camping, hiking, outdoor games including horseshoes, bocce ball, Crockett, and bad-mitten. What i love more than these activities are sports in which I pretty much love all sports but if i had to choose three it would be soccer, volleyball and water polo. When I'm not doing any our door activity i am inside programming in which i am going to school for and playing boardgames. I am currently going to the school Brigham young university Idaho and my major is computer science wanting to become a computer programmer. I have an amazing wife and we have been married for a month and a half and it has been the best time of my life being with her.

Why I am a Mormon

it is hard to begin to express my emotions of how I feel towards my beliefs and why I'm a Mormon. the first reason that makes me always want to be a Mormon is the joy i have in finding my true potential and identity here on this earth. I know exactly who i need to become, what i need to do for others and most importantly the things that i need to avoid to return back to my heavenly father. the second reason why I'm a Mormon is for the the joy of knowing that i am living the way god wants me to live and that by doing so i see blessings in my life everyday. I know these blessings will continue to come if i keep all of the lords commandments the way he wants me to live them and not how men want me to keep them. Third i know that i am part of the same church that was established when Christ was on the earth with the same priesthood that he had to heal the sick and raise the dead. being a Mormon has been the greatest blessing of my life and i wouldn't want to be anywhere else in my life for i am truly happy and know i wouldn't have the same life or be the same person if it wasn't for being a Mormon. Mormonism is the key to true happiness the the way to return to be with our families, husbands, wives once again for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday for I am always trying to be come more faithful to god and to what i know is true. Some of the ways i do this is having the opportunity to teach a class to all the men in my church once a month in which i get to let them know of our duties as men and how we can become better disciples of our lord Jesus Christ but also better brothers, sons and husbands to those who care about us most. becoming better followers of our savior is one of the best things we can do for we will make our lives happier and i have seen that time and time again. Another way I live my faith is by letting people know and never turning back to what i know is right for i know the lord is watching me. It doesn't matter where i am i let people know of my beliefs and try to show it through my acts of kindness that i earnestly look for.
