Hi I'm Jared

I grew up in Utah and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am almost 19 years old and about to leave on a mission. I am going to Fiji, Suva as a missionary for the church and I am so excited! I graduated from High School three months ago. I love to play sports especially soccer. I love to give service to others and I love to laugh and talk with people.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the church and I am so lucky that I grew up in the gospel. I love the gospel and what it helps me to be. It keeps me strong and it helps me when I am feeling weak. There is nothing else I would rather be doing than getting ready to teach others about this true church that I am a part of. I know that this church is true and that we have a prophet of God on this Earth today and that it is Thomas Monson. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and I love to read it and learn from it. I know that the Savior is Jesus Christ and that he loves each and every one of us.

How I live my faith

I love going to church every Sunday. It is one of the highlights of my week. Going to church has helped me makes choices in my life, like to go on a mission.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jared
No we do not worship Joseph Smith but we do look up to him and respect him. He was the first modern day prophet and through him, the Church of Jesus Christ was restored on the Earth. He saw our Heavenly Father and the Savior Jesus Christ as well as many other heavenly beings. He translated the Book of Mormon. We respect him a great deal and I love him for what he did for this church. Show more Show less
