Hi I'm Jeremy

I love math, I'm an amateur numismatist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really enjoy collecting coins, and am an amateur numismatist. I focus mostly on US pennies, but also collect various other denominations. I love math. I could eat, drink, sleep, and do math all day long. I especially enjoy number theory, and have participated in some math competitions. I also enjoy computers. I am a beginning programmer in a couple different languages, and look forward to being able to learn more.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I grew up as a member of the Church, and so developed a solid foundation for my testimony. But just relying on others testimonies wasn't enough. I had to find out for myself that these things are true. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I have read and studied it, and after much pondering and prayer, have gained a knowledge that it is true. That knowledge came through the power of the Holy Ghost, and came after I put in the effort to know. Because the Book of Mormon is true, Joseph Smith must have been a prophet. I know that he saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, and that the gospel that was restored through Joseph Smith is true. I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's church. All that is taught here is from God. Because I have know this, I want to do all that I can to help others come to find for themselves that it is true. There is so much happiness and joy that comes from living the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ, and everyone deserves that in their life.

How I live my faith

As a missionary, living my faith was pretty simple. I spent all day, every day with the Lord. I got to study, teach, and testify about the word of God. I was actively involved in helping others to build their faith in Christ, and in this process, my own faith grew stronger. After my mission, it is a little different. Not everything is mapped out, but I still continue to study, share, and live the gospel. I actively participate in all activities and my callings in the Church, including visiting those members that I have been asked to watch over and assist when needed. Basically, I live my faith with how I treat those around me: as my brothers and sisters because we are all God's children.
