Hi I'm Jordan

I love medicine, I run and play tennis, I am a Mormon.

About Me

Here's a really, really condensed version of my live. I was born in Hawaii in 1997, then after two months my family moved to Utah. I know, I miss Hawaii. Then after a few months in Utah we moved to a small town in Southern California, where I grew up. Elementary and middle school were pretty uneventful, so I'm going to skip that. High school was where the real action was. My freshman year I joined the tennis team and marching band. I love band, more specifically the music we played. I love music, it's one of the greatest ways of communication without the use of words. I stuck with band and tennis all throughout high school, as well as joining sports medicine my senior year. Sports medicine and athletic training was a great opportunity for my, not only to serve but to figure out what I wanted to do after high school. After joining sports medicine, I soon became an athletic trainer for the girls basketball team and the football team. I absolutely loved it! Then, I graduated high school. I attended Brigham Young University in Idaho studying Exercise physiology to become an athletic trainer and part of sports medicine. After two semesters, I decided to serve a mission for this church. I received my call to the Mexico, Mexico City North mission on March 28, 2016. Here's the basic story of my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church, which is why I'm a Mormon. However, that is not why I am a Mormon. I know that may be confusing, so let me clarify. I'm a Mormon because I was born into the Church, and I was baptized when I was 8. However, my personal conversion to the Gospel didn't happen until I was 16. It's true, I believe in Christ and I had faith and a testimony of Him, and I believed in the Book of Mormon, but I didn't know for a fact yet. At the age of 16 I decided to read the testimony of the three witnesses found on the very first few pages of the Book of Mormon. After reading those words, how could I deny those pure and simple testimonies? How could I deny what I felt, a feeling of truth and understanding? I know the Book of Mormon to be true, and there is no possible denying the feelings that will be received when reading it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. I college I had the great opportunity to become a volunteer tutor for Anatomy and Physiology I and II. Helping others see the magnificent creation of our bodies brought joy to me and them. But you don't need to teach strangers about the different lobes of the brain to serve them. You can do so in small and simple ways, like holding the door open for them, helping them carry groceries, or even something as small as smiling. You never know how you can impact there lives, which is why I try to serve and live my faith through my actions, because as the old saying goes, "actions speak louder than words".
