Hi I'm Jarom

I grew up in Urbana, Illinois I Love music, people, books I'm serving in The Great California Mission and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am an avid reader, I am currently serving a mission in California, I love to cook, I Have amazing parents and 4 awesome brothers and a way too cool little sister, I want to teach math or science. I also love to play piano and the trumpet and sing.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon not because I was raised in the church. In fact for a little while I was not going to church and not trying to live all the commandments, but as I finally turned to our heavenly Father ant really tried to follow his will I realized the way I was living was not making me truly happy. Though as I started to live the gospel I saw so many blessings that have come with it and now I can't see my self as anything else then a mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary so I go out and serve for two years teaching people and inviting them to come unto Christ. I study the scriptures everyday and I also try my best to live the teachings in the scriptures, by being a good person and also I also use the atonement (or the power of Jesus Christ) to help me change and grow to be a better person.

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

We believe that God is the same yesterday today and for ever as it says in the scriptures "For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and in him there is no variableness neither shadow of changing?" Mormon 9:9 and even in the New Testament after Judas died, the 12 apostles, under the the direction of Peter, choose Matthias as the new apostle to fill the hole that Judas had left. So in our day when we believe that the same church has been organized and so wouldn't it make sense that God would again call 12 men to preach the gospel and help us grow close to him as he did in the time of Christ?
