Hi I'm Jared Williams

I was born and raised in Austin, Tx. I'm a music enthusiast and a skateboard lover, basically label me an artist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am16 years old, I play drums, piano, guitar, and sing. I am in my highschool marching band (march the tener drums) and also am in my own band Capri Cinema. I love painting and drawing, and love writing my own songs. One of my favorite hobbies is photography, and my favorite thing in the world is a sunset. I skateboard and ride a Welcome board. I love who I am and I'm not afraid of being who I am. I live by this saying, "Life isn't about what you can get but what you can give."

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon, raised in a home with strong standards and firm beliefs rooted in the church. As I got older however, I ran into some trouble. But after I pushed through some dark times and stressful events I realized that if I turn towards the Lord and follow the commandments, that life is very much a happy and peaceful place. There are many blessings from following the commandments and living the standards we are given, if we continue to do so I promise great things and great happiness are in store for each and every one of us.

How I live my faith

I wish to be a missionary as soon as I can, I prepare daily by going to 5am seminary and a mission prep class every second and fourth Sunday. I love this church and I would do anything for it, even if that means sacrificing the things I love. At school I try to stand out and be different. Just living the gospel and keeping your standards causes you to be different so I don't try too hard. In all the activities I do at school I always get asked questions concerning my church, I always answer to the best of my understandings and I always ask them to ask me anything else they have questions about. Whenever I see someone struggling in life I often go to them and try to be their friend, I try to talk to them about some gospel principles that would greatly help and bless their life. I hate seeing people be down and I will try every way I can to bring others up.
