Hi I'm Jed Hansen

I love to read and discuss ideas to improve my way of living. I'm a musician. I'm a youth counselor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I'm Jed. I love martial arts and meditation. Doing things that help me feel close to God keeps the life blood running through me. I have always been interested in science and learning about the natural world. I grew up in Utah and have studied a lot of different world religions. God has always been important to me. As I have grown in experience I learned how I can better follow the plan He has for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God loves me. He answers prayers regardless of who you are even if you're a guy like me. I know this because of an incredible experience I had has I prayed and learned my identity as one of His children. I come from the exact same place as everyone else on this planet and have the same spiritual nature and purpose as you do. The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints is the only church that teaches this doctrine in the complete from of what I have learned and believe me I've searched.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving as a missionary in the Ohio Cleveland Mission. I have been called to teach the gospel in Spanish. Reaching out to others and helping them feel and know of God's plan for us is one of the most amazing experiences. Each day I do my best to be grateful for the miracles all around me. Gratitude keeps things in perspective for me and reminds me of the relationship I have with God. Yes, Life can throw some hard trials at you, sometimes larger than you think you can bear or ever recover from. Remembering that I have a Savior and remembering why he did what he did has given me the strength to make it through the darkness to come out on the other side closer to Christ. I'm still very imperfect but I know who I have put my trust in.
