Hi I'm Jordan

Born and raised in the Portland Metro Area. Served a Mission in Cuiabá, Brasil. Exercise physiology student. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the Portland Metro Area in a small town called Sherwood. All of my family are members of the church, But I feel like I didn't really gain my own testimony of the Gospel till I was 16 or 17. I am the middle child of 3. I have two sisters. My older sister is 24, and my younger sister is 18. Ever since I was little I've been a huge sports fan. My first love was hockey, but I only played that one for a year. In high School I played football and lacrosse, where some of my greatest memories were created. After high school, I attended college for a year before leaving to serve a 2 year mission for the church in Cuiabá, Brazil. Those were two years I wouldn't trade for the world, and I'm so thankful I had the opportunity to serve. I am currently studying at college again, in hopes of one day becoming a Physical Therapist. I am also engaged to be married August 6th, 2016 in the Columbia River Temple.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is through the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ that we can find the greatest peace, joy, and happiness in this life. I know that Christ has restored his church on the earth once again, through the prophet Joseph Smith. I know the priesthood keys which Christ and his apostles held, have also been restored to this earth. I am a Mormon because I know this is the only religion that teaches that our families can be together forever, through proper priesthood ordinances. Even though this life is full of challenges and trials, it is a foundation built upon the gospel that can help keep our heads afloat.

How I live my faith

Living in today's world is far from easy. The world is forever changing. It's also so easy to get down on ourselves when we realize that we aren't reaching our potential. However, I live my faith one day at a time. As long as we do our best, and try to get a little better each day, God will make up the rest. Through the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows, if we press forward with faith, we will always come out on top. God is a God of promise. If we do our part, he'll do his.
