Hi I'm Jeremy Olmstead

I'm from Gilbert Arizona, I wish I could play the piano, I'm serving a mission in South Carolina. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

While I was attending High School I was in choir all four years and always loved it! I was also able to meet many people and create friendships with others my age who have greatly influenced who I am today. I was greatly invested in scouting and am an eagle scout so of course I have come to love camping, hiking, rock climbing, repelling, and all traditional things outdoors. I have four brothers and two sisters who are the best! I also have two amazing sister in laws, a niece, and 3 nephews and they are all adorable! I like to watch television shows and play video games and I love Disney! So ya I'm kinda nerdy. Currently I am serving a full time mission in South Carolina. I grew up in the dry heat of Arizona my whole life and so the humid air and green tall trees here in the South are quite different for me, but I love them! I also enjoy long walks on the beach, singing in the rain, and all of those stereotypical things you could think of.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church and went to church every Sunday but never really understood what the gospel of Jesus Christ was or why it was important for me to follow it. But as I grew in age and gained a little bit of knowledge I came to realize the importance of it in my life. I saw how everything around me was tied to God and his plan for me. I have a testimony of the power of Jesus Christs atonement and how through Him all things were and are made possible for us and how we can receive the blessings that are awaiting if we simply live righteously. I know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ and that through modern day prophets and reading the word's of the lord we are able to better know the will of God for us in these modern days. I love the lord and I love this life he has given me!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and telling others about Jesus Christ's message for each of us. I read my scriptures daily and I try to follow all of God's laws and commandments to the best of my ability because that is what he has asked me to do and I know that when I do I can receive blessings that would otherwise be unobtainable by me. I am not nearly close to perfect at it but that is why God gave us his son, so that we could repent and move forward in life finding happiness. I know its what he wants for us so I am glad to be out sharing his message with his children!
