Hi I'm Jorge Beltran

I was born and raised in Carlsbad, California. I'm a student at BYU and love the outdoors. I live, like and love being Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Mormon who was raised by two converts to the LDS church and it has been the greatest blessing in my life having the church throughout my childhood and teenage years. I love to go to the beach and spend time with my family in my free time. I play Lacrosse and love to run. I plan on finishing my undergrad studies at BYU and then going to dental school when i come home from my mission. #ScrubNation #TheyCallMeWillis

Why I am a Mormon

i'm a mormon because i know this church is true. i know that there is NO way, a fourteen year old boy from upstate new york in the 1800's could possibly translate those married treasure to modern day english. i know through the feeling i get from reading the book of mormon and listening to the counsel of the brethren of the church that this is the true church. what helps strengthen my faith of this church is listening to the church hymns. the power of music is something i can't describe but recommend to all to listen to the words and music of the LDS hymns. when I'm doubtful, i listen to the church music and it helps me reasure what i know to be true true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as best as i can. since moving to BYU it's been easier and there's been less temptation. i live my faith by trying to be the best disciple of christ i can be. before i act upon an action, i always try to ask myself; what would jesus do. currently I'm trying to live what i know by acting on it. I'm currently planning and preparing on serving my mission. it's a dream come true. everything i've worked for is now coming true and i'm thankful for everything in my life and it's all thanks to christ my redeemer and savior.
