Hi I'm Jordan Sitterud

California native. I love sports, art, and nature. I love my family. I am serving a mission in Iowa. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm Jordan! I am currently serving as a missionary in the Iowa, Des Moines Spanish speaking mission. I love all sports but basketball is my favorite, soccer is pretty great too. I love to get outside and get some camp vibes, this world is truly amazing. I love my family! I love my friends. I love to take pictures and make videos. I love to listen to and think about music and other works of art. I love to serve others. I love life! Life is really a beautiful thing and I am so grateful to be alive during this incredible time.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have read and studied the Book of Mormon and know that it is a true word of God and another testament of Jesus Christ. I studied it intently, questioning everything, and with an open heart. Once I had completed the scripture, I prayed and asked my Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was true. I did not get an answer and I started to get scared that my faith was incorrect. However I soon realized that I already knew the answer long before I finished it. Every time I would read from the Book of Mormon I would be so happy afterwards and would feel peace for the remainder of my day. I knew that it was true, there was no way that it couldn't be, it has had way to big an impact on my life to not be true. After this experience, I have completely devoted myself to being Mormon and am so glad that I have obtained this knowledge. There is no other way I would want to live. The church has provided me with so much direction in my life and has shown me the way to be truly happy. The simple Gospel of Jesus Christ has an answer for all of my questions and it all makes sense to me. I am so glad that I put the Book of Mormon to the test, it has changed my life and I am so happy now to be serving and sharing what I know with the people of Iowa!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving the Lord and the people of Iowa as a missionary everyday. I have given two years of my life to serve and to bring about a great and wonderful work. It's a pretty crazy idea that someone like me would do this out of their own free will but I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church and because I know that I have obtained so much happiness in my life. I love the Mormon faith, there is no other way that I would want to live my life because I know that I am most happy when I am obedient to the Lord and follow the teachings of Christ that have been taught to me through His church. I live my faith by trying to be the best person I can be and by trying to be an obedient and a humble servant at all times. Through diligent scripture study and prayer I have come to know that these things are true through the Spirit. As I have reached out to God, He has reached out to me. It's a beautiful thing. He loves us so much and only wants us to be happy and to return to live with him again. When we follow His will we can obtain happiness and be with Him again. I love my faith so much and would be nothing without it.
