Hi I'm Jordan

I grew up in Utah. I love to four wheel, boat, and snowboard. I'm a runner and a recreational ballroom dancer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play. This makes sense, based on the fact that I'm still a teenager. I love to boat and go four wheeling by summer, and snowboard and sled in the winter. My family owns 5 four wheelers, and live in a mountainous region, allowing me to see the beauty of God's creation. I love to boat, specifically knee and wakeboard. I am a runner, and ran both cross country and track in high school, and ran a state in cross country my senior year, which taught me I have to work to achieve things I want in life. I have done ballroom dance for about a year, but because of strong work ethic, I had the opportunity to be in 5 of the 6 of my team's numbers this year. The majority of the participants that started with me are in 2. I am about to leave on a mission and I'm very excited and nervous for this opportunity.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and taught the gospel from a very young age. I relied on my parents testimonies until I could build one on my own. I know without a doubt that the Book of Mormon is true and is the word of God. I know that the bible is also the word of God. I know that Joseph Smith was and is a prophet of God and restored the church in this dispensation. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our prophet today and speaks to us for God. I know that God loves me, and I know that God loves you. God loves you more than you could ever imagine. I know that he wants us to return to him more than anything, but he also values our agency and our choices. I love this gospel and it governs how I live my life. I am excited to be able to share this gospel that I love so much with the people in my mission.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in my everyday actions. I choose to live my life in accordance with God's commandments to the best of my ability. I start each morning by saying my prayers, showering, then reading my scriptures. By reading them in the morning before school, it allows me to be able to have a better day, remember the Lord better throughout the day, and to be a better example to others in my personal conduct.
