Hi I'm Jared

I'm from Provo, Utah. I started a glasses clinic in Guatemala. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love everything sports, both watching and playing them. I also love hiking, biking, fishing, camping, and pretty much anything you can do out in the wilderness. I am a pretty good piano player and absolutely love it. I will be attending Brigham Young University after serving a full time mission. Nothing brings me greater happiness than helping others.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church, but at times have struggled with the truth of it all. However, I have come to know that this is the true church. Prayer is real and God really does answer prayers. I have experienced this first hand. One night after struggling mightily with myself over if this Gospel is true or not, I knelt down and honestly cried out to the Lord, asking for a testimony of the Gospel. Nothing came right away, so I just went to bed. The next day in Sacrament meeting, I had one of the most spiritual experiences of my life. I know that God knows each and every one of us personally, and wants us to return to him. This Gospel is the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Spirit has made that known unto me.

How I live my faith

I am the leader of my youth group in the LDS church, and I play the piano for our weekday and Sunday activities as well. I occasionally teach Sunday school lessons and organize activities. I am also in a home teacher companionship with my father, and we look after 2 families in our ward.
