Hi I'm Jeremy

I love sports. I love the outdoors. I am a missionary for Jesus Christ.

About Me

I love playing just about any kind of sport but baseball and basketball are my favorite. If I'm not doing one of those you will find me at the lake either fishing or wakeboarding. At the moment I am serving a full time mission in St. George, Utah. I love meeting new people and hearing their life story. I just want to be a good person in front of and behind close doors. I strive to follow the example of our Savior Jesus Christ everyday and serve everyone around me. I want to look back at life one day and say I accomplished all I set out to do, I don't want to feel like sat back and took the easy way not growing any.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the true gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored exactly like it was when He was on earth. Jesus set the example for us and I want to follow Him to the best of my ability. I enjoy going to church and the activities because it is like we are one big family helping each other along this path back to our Heavenly Father. Everyone has ups and down but this gospel helps me forget about the tough times and give me the strength that I need to press forward in faith. Our Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us and He is always there for us through prayer. I know that the Holy Spirit speaks to us through prayer and makes known of those things which are right to our hearts. He wants all of His children to return to live with Him and have happiness and our church centered around Jesus Christ makes that possible for everyone to return and live with Him. I know this gospel is true because the first time I actually humbled myself and knelt down to pray for an answer I felt God's love for me. I knew this is the path He wanted me to follow without a doubt. I know He is there for us at all times, but first we must put forth the effort.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always trying to live in the moment not worry about the past and don't get too caught up in looking to the future. I try to focus on the present and what can I do to make my life and those around me better. While serving a mission I get to do that every day leave everything back at home and just study the gospel and help bring it to those who are searching for it. I know that every one has a divine potential they can reach it just takes the right mind set to reach that goal our Heavenly Father has planned for us. I am not perfect by no means but I strive to always represent our Savior in all that I do. He provided the Atonement for us because we are not perfect, and I know that through Him we can be forgiven and our hearts can be changed and that guilt can be washed away. So I always strive to keep the commandments and repent daily for my shortcomings. I know that is only possible through Jesus Christ.
