Hi I'm Jett

I grew up in a very small town. I love my family. I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and I am preparing to serve a mission. In fact I leave for my mission in 22 days. I am very excited for the opportunity I have to serve the Lord, it will bless me in many ways I do not even know. I am very interested and involved in athletics. My favorite sport is basketball. I have also played rugby, baseball, soccer, hockey, and have participated in track. Water sports are another thing I enjoy. I love traveling with my family, we have been everywhere together. I really enjoy going on dates and hanging out with all my friends. I have made many awesome memory's with them and my family that will last a life time. After my mission I plan on coming home and attending school somewhere. I am interested in taking sports medicine where I can help people and athletes with their athletics and everyday life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love it. I do not know where or what I would be doing with my life if I was not a member of the church. Living the gospel has kept me safe and has made me many great life time friends. That is why I choose and love to keep the commandments we have been commanded to keep. I think often people will say things like, "How do you have any fun?" Or, "Don't you feel restricted living by those standards?" For me I think that living the commandments has given me more freedom and kept me very safe. It takes the worry away from my parents too! They know when I go out I will make smart decisions. They know that I will not go out drinking or doing anything like that, as I know its not up to the covenants I have made with Heavenly Father. Another reason I love this church is because there are so many great people. All of my friends have the same standards as me and we all have generally the same interests. I love this church and it makes me happy!

How I live my faith

The community I live in is mostly Mormon, so there are always fun activities that are put on for the whole town. I am often involved in these activities. I have had many callings in the church, one of my favorites was when I was called to the youth committee. During the time I was in that calling I was involved in planning many fun activities for the youth. The most fun ones were the dances. I got to help pick the themes for them and them help decorate. Right now I have been called as a home teacher. Once a month me and a companion go visit two family's. We sit and talk with them, give them a spiritual lesson, and then ask if there is anything we can do to help them. Often times the children say we can bring them cookies.
