Hi I'm Jordin

I'm the oldest of five kids. I play rugby for the BYU women's team. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in the Southern region of the United States where I learned to love life and people. Right now my family resides on a farm in the rolling hills of Eastern Tennessee where we raise horses, sheep, and an assortment of other critters. I am currently an undergraduate at Brigham Young University where I am majoring in Middle Eastern Studies and learning the beautiful Arabic language. My freshman year I decided to try something new so I tried out for the BYU women's rugby team. I have since joined the team and traveled with my fellow teammates all over the USA as we aim for the national championship every year. I have decided however to put my education and sports activities on hold as I serve the Lord and his children in the Japan Sendai Mission for the next 18 months. I report in May 2015 and can hardly wait!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents both grew up as active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and transferred their knowledge and love of this Gospel to me. This however did not determine my continuance to believe and my own experiences of faith. I had to seek and act on my own to find out if what my parents believed and taught was true and right for me. After many months of soul-searching and doctrinal research I, through the help of the Lord, came to the decision that this Gospel is true. Since then I have continued to receive small confirmations that my choice was the correct one. I know this gospel is true and that I have a loving and merciful Father in Heaven who loves me and wants what's best for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as I try to follow my Savior's example throughout my daily activities. One of my life goals includes trying to continually find ways to serve my fellow human beings as He did. This desire of mine helped me to decide to serve a mission. While I am a little nervous about moving to a new country without prior knowledge of the Japanese language I know that if I have faith in my Heavenly Father and his Son I can overcome all things and complete the work he has in store for me.
