Hi I'm Jared Butler

I enjoy music, playing drums, skateboarding, working on cars and riding dirt bikes with my family and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have had an interest in figuring things out for as long as I can remember so I enjoy finding out what is wrong with a radio or remote. Most of the time as a child I ended up taking the remote apart and having my dad help me. As I have gone through high school I have met people who have helped me become comfortable working on cars and in doing so I've discovered how relaxing it is to fix a car because its an accomplishment that makes me feel good. I don't read books because why read a story when you can have your own adventure or do something that makes a positive impact on other people? I am preparing to leave on a LDS mission, I have been called to serve for 24 months in Richmond, Virginia!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised into the LDS church but when I was in junior high I started asking myself questions and didn't know where to find the answer by the time I was in high school I just didn't want to go to church or do anything church related unless there was food. So near the middle of seventh grade my mom, grandma and grandpa talked me into going to education week at BYU to listen to motivational speakers. At education week they had a daily dance class for kids my age so I went and met a young lady and I talked to her and her sisters for a while and i just noticed something so amazing about them and how happy they were and ever since I lost the desire to go to church I had not felt that kind of happiness so ever since then I had started loving church and felt so happy. This is why I want to go on a mission is because I have so much love for others and I want them to be able to feel such a strong feeling of love and happiness.

How I live my faith

I have attended four wonderful years of seminary that allowed me to learn with my friends and grow. I attend church regularly and the temple often.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Jared Butler
The mother and father in a family are there to teach and love the children so they feel loved and can have someone to look up to and being a father or a mother means that you need to know that your children are always watching and learning things from you so make sure that your doing your best at being a good example to them.
