Hi I'm Jared Brinkerhoff

I love fast cars and freedom, star gazing, a good Texas rain storm. I'm 20 and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the greatest state this side of the Mississippi, Boise Idaho and I didn't grow up on a potato farm contrary to what the world believes. I grew up in a big family (8 kids) it was always a lot of fun and I have 2 amazing parents who taught us about work and The gospel of Jesus Christ. I love America,hunting, fishing, wake boarding, snowboarding, pretty much anything outside and I like to go fast. I love country music and singing along with it, I'm not very good but that doesn't stop me from trying. I currently reside in the greatest Mission either side of the Mississippi, The Texas Fort Worth Mission. I spend my time in the Texas heat teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to anyone who will listen and a lot who won't (Bible Belt) I love my mission it has been a tremendous blessing so far helping others come closer to Christ and growing my testimony of Him stronger each and every day. I truly think one of the greatest parts of a mission is when Heavenly Father lets you feel a portion of love for His Children that you didn't think was possible to feel, and catching a glimpse of people and seeing what our Father in Heaven sees in them. When my mission ends in October of 2016 I will go home and continue to be a witness of our Savior. I also plan on obtaining a degree in business upon my return at LDS Business College.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of this church for a lot of different reasons, but the biggest one is that I know without a doubt that this is Jesus Christ's true church established for the last time on this earth preparatory to His second coming. I have seen the joy that living this gospel brings. Also the beautiful doctrine and simple truths taught in the church such as Families can be together forever God lives The heavens are open God still speaks to us God has called a Prophet Jesus Christ's atonement is real.

How I live my faith

Brigham Young once said "Be ye as perfect as ye can" so every day I try a little harder to be a little better. I try to see others as our Father in Heaven sees them and love them like Jesus does.
