Hi I'm Jared

I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have a family of 6 including my parents, my brother, two sisters and myself. I love them very much. I will be serving a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Fort Worth, Texas for the next 2 years. When I come home I plan to go to college at Utah State University, and will study finances. I enjoy mountain biking, backpacking, going to the beach, and gaming.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, and it has been a big part of my life for as long as I have been alive. I recently made the decision to leave behind everything I know and serve a mission in Texas. I do it because the Gospel is a blessing in my life and God has asked us to share it with others, so that all his children can be happy. I know that by doing what God asks of us we always come out happy and successful, even if it is difficult at first.

How I live my faith

When I lived at home I went to church with my family every Sunday. I was born into this church, and I was baptized at the age of 8 like most Mormon kids, but it was not until I was 18 that I really learned for myself the truth of the doctrine of this church. We believe that this church is the exact same organization that Jesus created long ago, and that he is at the head of this church today. I had to find out for myself if this was all true by asking God. Now that I know, I make my best effort each day to do what God wants me to do.
