Hi I'm Jared

I live in Salt Lake. I enjoy all kinds of activities in the Wasatch mountains near me. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a typical college student. I'm studying engineering at the University of Utah. When I'm not swamped with homework, I enjoy mountain biking, climbing, hiking, kayaking, longboarding, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, backpacking, fishing, really anything outside. I play water polo, I enjoy cooking, really just so I can eat, and meeting cute girls ;) I enjoy exploring Utah and the surrounding states. I take my jeep, my climbing harness, my bicycle and my national park pass and explore!

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate enough to be born into the church, and my testimony came through years of seeing the happiness and fulfillment that comes through following the teachings of the gospel. As you bring the gospel into your life, you can find direction, comfort, and purpose. Knowing that my Heavenly Father loves me for who I am gives me the desire and the confidence to share the gospel with everyone willing to receive it.

How I live my faith

I've been called serve as a missionary in the Sweden, Stockholm mission. I've had lots of opportunities in the church to help prepare me for my call, including leadership positions in the young men's and Boy Scout programs and as an instructor for the swimming and lifesaving merit badges. I love working through the gospel to bring opportunities for happiness to others. I volunteer through a program that helps brings outdoor opportunities to youth with special needs, and it's incredible to see the progress and the joy these kids receive.
