Hi I'm Jordan

I grew up in California. I am a student at BYU. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at BYU. I have family here, as well as in Seattle. I used to live in California, and I enjoy going to the beach. I like building things.

Why I am a Mormon

Living the gospel yields many great blessings, and I can not count the number of ways it has blessed my life. Some of the standards we adhere to may seem a bit extreme, but they are to help and protect us.

How I live my faith

At BYU there are many great religion classes. I am taking a couple this semester. I home-teach a few people, which means visiting them and sharing a short message with them. I am also going to serve a mission for two years in Australia.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Joseph Smith was chosen by God to restore the church to the earth after the great apostasy. He was acting as a prophet through the power of God. Show more Show less

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

The Lord has organized the church so only Men hold the priesthood, but women also have a tremendous place in his church. The women have an organization called the Relief Society. It is called the relief society because it was established to help those in need. Show more Show less
