Hi I'm Jarron

I have grown up all over the United States, but spent most of my time in Arizona and New England. I love nature and rock climbing.

About Me

I am an eagle scout in the Boy Scouts of America. I worked at a local scout camp for five summers, where I became interested in climbing, blacksmithing, and water conservation. Since working there, I have built my own forge for blacksmithing and taught my dad how to set up a rock climbing belay line. I also was a part of FIRST robotics. I was lucky enough to have my team earn their way to the world competition each year of high school. I'm currently at Brigham Young University until I leave to serve a mission for the LDS church. I'm studying mechanical engineering and hoping to work in the field of renewable energies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was a member because my family encouraged me to come and I liked the people I was around and who mentored me. With time, I could feel a difference as I stepped into the building and while I served in my church. I wanted to always keep that feeling in my heart. I chose to serve a mission because of my desire to keep my heart centered on Christ and to help others do the same.

How I live my faith

I was typically one of the only boys my age in church. Because of this, I was given a lot of responsibility ensuring the church was clean and the sacrament was set up and distributed properly. While being responsible for these duties, I also was in cross country, band, robotics, and the Boy Scouts. I learned how to prioritize my responsibilities fast to keep up with school and all my activities. I would rarely skip church for my other activities because I was responsible for so much in church. My faith in God increased as I spent more time working to provide a spiritual experience for others.
