Hi I'm Jeremiah

I am a beach lover, a sport addict, a easy-going young man and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a wonderful, loving, family-centered home. Through out my young years I have been extremely active in the field of sports. I have a true love for the beach and the ocean. At BYU-Idaho, I am studying political science. I enjoy helping all sorts of people by showing them how to find true joy and happiness. As of right now, I am currently serving a two year mission for this amazing church to share my joy and happiness with the people in the Philippines.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because it sets me apart from the rest of the world. I strive to live a high standard life, because I know that is what the Lord wants and expects from me. Even though I mess up sometimes, I can use his atonement to overcome my weaknesses and become a stronger man every day. You should be a Mormon too!

How I live my faith

I live the gospel of Jesus Christ because it brings true happiness into my life. I live my faith through service and constant personal improvement. Being a member of this church isn't a secret or social club, it is a way of life. It is true commitment to the Savior and His perfect example. I hope to always be a light unto all those that are looking for truth and good in the world. Through serving my brothers and sisters, I show my faith and love for the Savior and His gospel. He uses me as a tool to help his lost sheep and to bring them back to the fold, where eternal happiness and joy can be found.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Jeremiah
God created our bodies. They are one of his greatest gifts to us as his children. To show respect for this gift we can take care of it and keep it in good working order. Sometimes we are confused on what is really good or bad for our bodies, but the Lord, through the Prophet Joseph Smith, has revealed the things that we should and shouldn't do to our bodies, because he loves us and he wants us to be happy and healthy. When I follow this council, I feel happy and free. Addictions can destroy your freedom. My body is healthy and clean. I don't have to worry about being sick from the things that I eat and drink. I don't do drugs because even non-members know that it is bad for you. Heavenly Father promises to bless those who heed to his council and take care of his precious gifts! Show more Show less

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Jeremiah
We can help stop the spread of pornography by first sharing the blessings that come from not watching pornography and second we can share the pain and sorrow that come from viewing and participating in it. As we begin to acknowledge the great blessing and gift our bodies are, we will know that God wants us to be pure in thought and in actions. It is hard to convince people that do not have that moral background and that these things are totally against the will of God, but we can help them realize the conscience they have inside and through respecting others and their bodies, they will see the evil within pornography.
