Hi I'm Jarod

I grew up in a small town just west of salt lake city. I am serving a mission in Utica New York. and i'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Jarod I ran XC, I was a swimmer for my high school swim team and i swam freestyle, and played water polo. That being said I am also a big nerd I love all of the Marvel movies,Star wars , and video games I grew up in a small town with a graduating class of 170 ish i will be serving a full time LDS mission in new York.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the joy and happiness it brings to everyone's even though i grew up in the church didn't mean i was an active member i have been through a few trials in my life my parents are divorced and my dads side of the family is not members where as my moms side is for the most part i have had to fight battles inside of myself the past couple years and eventually i got so caught up in sin that i didn't want to change for the better any more but through the great examples through the people around me and Christ his eternal and everlasting love i changed without knowing it and felt so much better and i know he is in each of our lives and his sacrifice brings the atonement into each of our life's and it sucks having to repent for the same thing over and over again but that's the beauty of it we can use it forever but we should always try not to commit sin because he loves us and knows each one of us personally and he weeps when ever we commit sin and that is why I am a Mormon and a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints

How I live my faith

some of the things i try and do regularly is go to some of the youth activities as well as try and attend the temple as much as possible because of the blessings it brings i also try and participate as much as i can in service projects for people as well as just going out of my way to help someone or even just say hello i have recently started volunteering at the bishops storehouse this is where people who cant afford general necessities can go to pick those items up for free. but i always love serving other people because of the happiness it brings to them and for myself as well.
