Hi I'm Jared

I go to BYU-I, I grew up in Washington State, and i'm a mormon.

About Me

I love baseball. I attend BYU-I. I ran a mile once upon a time.

Why I am a Mormon

"The Lord’s way is not hard. Life is hard, not the gospel. Life is hard for all of us, but life is also simple. We have only two choices. We can either follow the Lord and be endowed with His power and have peace, light, strength, knowledge, confidence, love, and joy, or we can go some other way, any other way, whatever other way, and go it alone—without His support, without His power, without guidance, in darkness, turmoil, doubt, grief, and despair. And I ask, which way is easier?" - Elder Lawrence Cobridge

How I live my faith

I live my faith imperfectly, but with hard work. I strive to be Christlike but we all have our days. The number one thing to determine what kind of day it will be is by prayer and scripture study. I keep my head buried in my scriptures daily and try to take time throughout my day to stop and pray. The simple things keep your faith in good shape.
