Hi I'm Jared Hibbert

I grew up in Montana. I love music, video games and movies. I'm on a mission in Fresno California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Montana, I love the cold! Not a huge fan of the heat. I am currently on a Mission in California and I absolutely love it! I love snowboarding, movies, video games and spending time with my family. I love my family to death! They have always been there for me and I cannot explain how much I appreciate and love them.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life but I haven't always followed the teachings of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I grew up going to church, kind of going through the motions and not really going because I believed in the church. I came to a point where I had to choose two paths whether to go down the road I was currently on or decide to take the path of a Member in the church. I visited with my Bishop one day and he asked me if I wanted to go on a mission and I felt this sense of purpose that I had not felt before and I said, "absolutely". I decided to take the path of a member and as I prepared to go on a mission I felt a confirmation that what I was doing was right and I felt very powerfully the spirit also known as the Holy Ghost. The spirit testifies of Jesus Christ and tells us truth. When I felt the spirit I was speechless and I bawled my eyes out. I knew that the church was true without a shadow of a doubt. I still know that the church is true. That's why I went on a mission in a very hot place. I love and know that my Savior lives and that he loves us as well. I know that He leads this church. I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father who hears our prayers and answers them. I know that we can return to live with our Savior and Father in Heaven when we live by the teachings of Jesus Christ, which includes faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. I love this church and I am not ashamed to be a member. I thank God that I chose this path.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary so I live my faith everyday by going out and sharing what I believe in. Mainly trying to spread the good news of Jesus Christ dying for us. I study my scriptures and pray daily and I go to church weekly and that really strengthens my faith and helps me feel closer to Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father. Sometimes I go out as a missionary in 100 degree weather and I love it because I know that I am helping others.
