Hi I'm Jordan

I'm Jordan. I love to laugh, sleep, and eat. I'm just a typical teenager and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from high school not too long ago. I played soccer throughout school and during my senior year, I was chosen to be soccer team captain. I love film making and photography. I worked as a salesman alongside my dad at our family's RV dealership. I love my family more than anything! Currently, I am serving as a full-time missionary in the Washington DC South Mission. Leaving home was, by far, the hardest thing I've ever done. But I am SO glad that I decided to serve.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS church. However, I wan't always an active member in the church. I fell away from the gospel for a very long time. Instead of focusing on God, I focused on myself. I became extremely selfish. I started to become someone that I knew i didn't want to be. I didn't feel like myself. I did things that weren't in accordance with Christ's teachings that I thought I'd never do. I would often say things and immediately after saying them, I would think to myself, "Why did I say that? That doesn't sound like me." Even though I knew I was on the wrong path, I continued on it for a long time. After a few years, I had fallen so far away that I rarely thought about God and I never prayed to Him. The few times that he did cross my mind, I didn't feel anything special. I knew that I shouldn't be living the way I was, but for some reason, I couldn't get back onto the correct path. I stayed living a life of sin and because of that, I constantly felt lost and distant from my Heavenly Father. Though I was distant from God, I was content with my life. Things were actually going really well for me! Just before I graduated high school, my life came crashing down. All of the things that I loved in my life fell apart. I felt like I lost everything. I was crushed. A few short weeks later, my absolute best friend, who had offered me much comfort and support, left to join the Navy. I became depressed. Finally, I realized what I needed. I needed God. I got on my knees and prayed. Almost immediately, I felt a feeling of love, comfort, and peace that I will never forget. Even though I had forgotten Him, God hadn't forgotten me. Since then, I have kept a close relationship with God. I've focused a lot of my attention towards increasing my knowledge of our savior, Jesus Christ. I know that God loves everyone. I know that Christ loves us. He loves us so much that he died for our sins so that we could be saved. I love my Heavenly Father and I love Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping to explain and to share it with others. I know that this church, Christ's restored church, can greatly bless the lives of God's children. I have seen the Gospel greatly bless my life. I want EVERYONE to experience the same happiness that the gospel has brought me. I decided to serve as a missionary so that I could share my happiness with others. Everyday, I talk with random strangers on their doorsteps or on the street about Jesus Christ. I live my faith by inviting everyone I meet to come closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ
