Hi I'm Jarrett

I'm from Utah, I'm a nationally ranked engineering student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a friendly outgoing person that has a lot of energy. I'm a hard worker and love to see people smile. I was a school officer my senior year as well as a two time national competitor in engineering; one of which I placed third. I also placed third in the world in a high school design competition. I'm going to serve my mission in Samara (Saratov), Russia. It'll be fun stuff

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of the witness I have received confirming the truthfulness of it. I have felt in my heart, and seen miracles with my own eyes that have led me to believe in the teachings of the church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to those around me. I am my wards chorister and I have a firm testimony of the spirit that comes when surrounded by good music

What is the Law of Chastity?

Jarrett
The Lord has given us the law of chastity to promote a better lifestyle for his children. It involves absolutely zero sexual contact with others before marriage, and complete fidelity to your spouse after marriage. It also states that these relationships are reserved for man and woman. When the Savior taught His gospel on the earth, he taught the following principles: Faith, repentance, baptism, the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. How do we endure to the end? By the first two principles, faith and repentance. When we have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ we act accordingly, meaning we obey His commandments and show we our love for him by respecting the eternal laws He has set forth. I speak Russian, and the missionary purpose in Russian differs slightly from the English. In English, a missionaries purpose ends with, "...receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, AND enduring to the end." In Russian the purpose states (translated), "Our purpose is to invite others to come to Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, through repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost IN ORDER TO endure to the end." These different words indicate that we endure to the end by exercising faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We do this by being willing to follow ALL of His commandments, including chastity, which can be very difficult for some people; and repenting when we make mistakes. Show more Show less
