Hi I'm Jaron

I am a lover of this world, and its people. I am taking every step possible to further the betterment of humanity. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have moved across the United States from Salt Lake, to Las Vegas, to Los Angeles, to Washington D.C. and have lived in 12 different homes in total. I am a lover of the outdoors and any outdoor sports or activities such as mountain biking, snowboarding, longboarding, etc. I am an eagle scout. In high school I was a wrestler and played football. After I graduated high school, I began serving a two year mission in Sao Paulo, Brazil where I teach the gospel of Christ. I have been accepted to Brigham Young University where I will study computer engineering after my mission. I hope to eventually start my own engineering business and grow my entrepreneurship from there.

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate enough to be born into an active LDS family. I have been taught this gospel from the beginning. I have been going to the Mormon church for as long as I can remember. But this doesn't mean I didn't question my faith. It was up to me to gain a testimony of the truth of this gospel. But it wasn't until right before my mission that I made a significant effort to find the answers to my questions and gain my own testimony of the gospel. I began by sitting down and reading the Book of Mormon from start to finish for the first time. This was truly an amazing experience. Just from doing this I gained so much knowledge of this gospel that I had never learned in my 18 years of living as an active Mormon. Some of the doubts that I had before began to disappear and I experienced a miraculous growth in faith.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full-time, two year mission in Sao Paulo Brazil in which I teach others about the LDS, or Mormon church to those who are not members and give them the opportunity to be baptized into our church. It is my job to dedicate all my time and effort to this cause. From the time I wake up at 6:30 am to the time I go to bed, I am doing all that I can to spread our message and help others come unto Christ. My native language is English, therefore it is my responsibility to learn Portuguese, the language of Brazil, so that I can effectively teach. I love this calling and wouldn't rather be doing anything else for these two years.
