Hi I'm Jared

I am from North Carolina. I am a hunter, fisher, video game player, and an archer. I am from North Carolina. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in San Jose, CA from September of 2014 to September of 2016. When i return i plan on attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, for Psychology. My hobbies include model railroading as well as playing World of Warcraft. Through my ward Boy Scout troop i made Eagle Scout and was in Martial Arts for 3 years.

Why I am a Mormon

Why any of us are members is out of an individual choice. My own personal choice has come through events that have shaped me to be who i am and for my testimony. My mother in 2012 was diagnosed with breast cancer and although these years have passed and she has overcome it and chemotherapy, it was at these times i needed a place to turn or something to turn to rather. It was then that i realized how much my Heavenly Father truly loved me and those stories of struggle in the Book of Mormon had become close to home, and i saw the value of those teachings. I am a Mormon not because i was raised in the church, but because through my life God has shown me the truth in the teachings of the church.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in the San Jose, California mission. I live my faith by looking for the good in this world, and by helping all those around me that i can. I love to do service, and to me it is everything. From helping a homeless person, to Micheal Jordan i serve. For is not that the greatest act of love we can do? When we are in the service of our fellow man, we are only in the service of our God. I do my best, and although i am not perfect, to love everyone. No matter who they are or what they do.
