Hi I'm Jamin Miller

I like to consider myself a country boy. I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Most of my life has been spent growing up in California; however, I spent a portion of my life in Idaho, and I fell in love with it from day one. My memories of Idaho include playing with the Tonka trucks in the dirt and riding ATV's in the countryside. Some think of me as a cowboy, but I think that I am far from it, more of just an everyday country boy. The thing that I most enjoy doing is spending time outside. Whenever I am outside, or better yet, in the outdoors, I feel like the world is mine and that I am free to do what I want. I love to go camping and spend a night out under the stars, and spend time in the beautiful world that God has created for me. I recently came back from a 7-day long hiking trip from Mt. Whitney. Although the trail was rough and my feet hated me for doing it, I loved every minute of it, and what made the trip complete was the chance to watch the sunrise from the summit of the mountain. Being 6'3" basketball is my go to sport. I love to play the game and I am always learning more about it and finding different ways to become better. I enjoy spending time with friends and having fun together. Every chance I get to go hang out with my friends I try to find time to do it. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and try my best to share it with everyone I can because I know that it will bring them the same happiness that it has brought me.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that I am not a perfect person and I know that I am not the only person that would say that about myself; however, that is the great thing about the gospel of Jesus Christ, through it I can become better, strong, fast, a hard worker, polite, reverent, patient, humble, kind, perfect. I have been born and raised Mormon. All of my life I have been taught about the gospel of Jesus Christ, but when I was about sixteen I wanted to know for myself if these things that I had been taught were really true. I figured that the one way to find out for myself was to ask God. One day while out jogging in an almond orchard I found a secluded place to kneel down and ask my question. After I had finished my prayer I got off my knees feeling no different than I had before kneeling down. Somewhat disappointed, I resumed my run. While running the thought kept occurring to me, "if only God would show me a sign, then I would know for sure that these things are true". After a few minutes of this thought seriously bothering me I realized that I needed to stop jogging and aloud I said, "Satan leave me, you have no power over me and the only person that I serve is my Father in Heaven". Immediately the negative thoughts and doubts left me and were replaced with peace, comfort and a reassurance that God loves me and cares about me. I knew then and there that God knows me personally by name and that He knows who I am and what my weaknesses and struggles are and that He is always there for me. From then on, whenever I have had a doubt about my faith or beliefs I just remember the time that I became truly converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Because of my faith I am who I am today. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a wonderful blessing that I feel has made me want to be a better person. I am a very kind, lighthearted, patient person, and I feel that I have only become this way because of the faith that I have grown up with. I feel that I do not look at the world the same way that many other people would. Because I am Mormon, I know that my shortcomings are not because I am a failure, but they are put there by God himself so that I can learn and become a better person. I know that as I have strived to live by the principles that I have been taught as a Mormon that I have come closer to Jesus Christ and my Father in Heaven who both love me and want the best for me. I hope that through my outlook on life others will realize that it is through the gospel of Jesus Christ that has made me who I am
