Hi I'm Jared

I was born in Tooele County, Utah. I am a Representative of Jesus Christ in the Missouri Independence Mission. I'm A Mormon.

About Me

I spent 10 years in the art of Percussion, and Marching. I love talking with people, and learning new things. I have a soft spot in my heart when it comes to people with emotional problems, I know and understand their struggle, and I strive to help them through it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was Baptized in Grantsville, Utah on October 19th, 2002. I entered into this 1st covenant with God, because I love my Heavenly Father. I knew that this covenant would enable me to be worthy of the companionship of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is an important part of my life. It has saved my bacon more times than I care to count. On the day of my Baptism, my Grandpa would ask me from time to time "can you feel it yet?" Me being the innocent 8 year old I was, would reply: "Yeah, Grandpa. I'm pretty hungry". Eventually I got the message implying that the Holy Ghost was with me. The point he was attempting to make was this: The Holy Ghost can't help you, if you never really learn how to recognize it. That simple message has stuck with me throughout my life. I reflect back on it often, and remember that the Lord is with me, if I choose to exercise Faith in Him, and always be worthy to feel his presence. Now here is the reason for why I am Mormon: it is *The Book of Mormon*. The power and divinity of the Book of Mormon has changed my life. It puts forth the doctrines of the gospel, outlines the plan of salvation, and tells men what they must do to gain peace in this life and eternal salvation in the life to come. There is a peace that is felt whenever I read, that the world could never give me. I know that it is the word of God, I know that God is all powerful and all knowing, and that His son even Jesus Christ, is the redeemer of the world. I am a Mormon, because the fullness of the Gospel has been Restored to the Prophet Joseph Smith, and that there is a Prophet on earth today, just like in times of old. I know who I am, I know Gods plan, my Future is secure, and my Mission is Clear. I love this Gospel and this church, and Invite all to turn to God and ask simply, if the Book of Mormon is true. Those who do this with real intent, will come to know that The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints is the Lords Kingdom established her on the earth.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time Missionary in the Missouri Independence Mission. My purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ, by helping them receive Restored Gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and to Endure to the end.
