Hi I'm Jarom

Grew up in Hong Kong, mission to Taiwan 2016-2018. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in America but lived and grew up in Hong Kong since I was 8 years old. I love Chinese culture, especially the food (Ma Po Tofu, give it a try!) I love spending time during the summers with family and relatives in Utah. I love adventure sports like wake boarding, skiing and surfing! After my church service mission I will be attending BYU-Provo, pursuing an education in business management.

Why I am a Mormon

Born a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) gives me perspective from a very young age of who I want to be and what truly matters. The friends think of me as the optimistic person in the group. How can I not be when I have a knowledge of my purpose here on earth? In a world with so many questions of where we come from, what are we doing here on earth and where are we going after death, it is easy to get lost. Knowing the simple principles that I am a son of a loving Heavenly Father is very empowering to me, and gives me a hopeful perspective on life. I live my faith by trying to share this knowledge with people I come in contact with. I am currently serving a two-year church service mission in Taiwan. I want to teach others about my source of strength and happiness which is rooted in my faith. I want to teach people that a loving God is always there, with open arms, to help us whenever we need help. If we turn to Him, He will bless us. God loves me personally. He has prepared this intricate plan of life, with twists and turns, success and disappointment, that is specifically tailored to me in order to allow me to learn and grow.

How I live my faith

Faith is a huge part of my life. Not a day goes by where my faith does not influence the thoughts I have, the actions I make and the goals I have. I live my faith by sharing my knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ that I know to be true. I try to be a role model in following God's commandments.
