Hi I'm Jared Nilson

I grew up in northern Utah. I am 19 years old and like to play golf. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in northern Utah. I love spending time with my family, studying the gospel, and helping anyone who is placed in my path. I love playing sports and learning about new things! I also love different languages and cultures.I am currently serving as a missionary in the Canada Montréal Mission speaking French.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the happiness His gospel brings to me. My family grew up in the church as did I, but I had to find the truth for myself by praying and searching for the answer I needed. The message that this gospel brings is true and I know that with all my heart. I would do anything for this gospel. Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ we can live with our family forever, that is such a huge blessing to me and it brings me a lot of happiness. The Book of Mormon is the word of God and by reading it we can receive answers and we will be blessed. The Book of Mormon contains the plenitude of the gospel and I have grown to not just love, but live the teachings that I have learned.

How I live my faith

I love doing all that I can to live my faith. To me that means every moment of everyday doing what I can to be a disciple and example of Jesus Christ. As a missionary I have given my life for two years to serve our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I enjoy studying the gospel and finding how I can better live my life in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. I also live my faith by always being ready to serve others.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Jared Nilson
For me personally, I always feel the confirmation that God exists whenever I am in nature. I am surrounded by incredible scenery and I feel the spirit testify to me that God exists. When I look into the night sky my breath is taken away because of all of God's creations. Through these experience I feel closer to my Heavenly Father. All things testify of God and Christ.
