Hi I'm Jordan

I was born in Boise, Idaho, but have lived the majority of my life in Vernal, Utah. I am proudly a nerd, and I'm also a mormon

About Me

I'm a very nerdy kid, not only do I really love science and engineering, and plan to become a Nanomaterial Engineer, but I also really love to read and write, my favorite authors ranging from Brandon Sanderson and Orson Scott Card, to J.R.R. Tolkein and J.K. Rowling, as well as many others. These authors have inspired me to write my own sci-fi/fantasy stories, though all of those are still in progress. I also really like playing games like Magic The Gathering and Pathfinder the RPG. I was even the Game Master of a 6 year long campaign. I really like playing video games on my Ps3 as well, some of my favorites being Destiny and Darksouls 2 as well as Sid Meiers Civilization Revolution and Dynasty warriors 6: Empires (I really loved the Uncharted and Batman games as well).

Why I am a Mormon

My testimony of the gospel was one forged by fire so to speak. I was raised in the church with the values and messages of the Book of Mormon, even though my family and I were less active members, we strived to keep the lord's commandments. It always struck me how hard it was to do so, so many times in my life where I was tempted to lessen my values , and it was always so much harder to keep them than it was to give in. The greatest tests came after my father passed when I was 12, there was an onslaught of temptations, from friends encouraging me to participate in unwholesome activities and then mocking me for not, to simply resisting the call of activities I knew to be wrong to distract me from my loss. But I was able to hold on to my values throughout (not with out some mistakes, which is one of a multiplicity of reasons I am grateful for the atonement) and so I was able to be sealed to my father and mother in the temple, meaning that in the life to come we'll still be reunited as a family, which is such an important and amazing blessing to me, and so I've learned that sticking to this path, while it may be very difficult at times, is so very worth it. The right path will always be uphill, and that has been my experience, as well as that of many others like me. I've found that living the teachings of the Gospel makes life better and easier, not in the sense that I don't have trials (clearly I have) but I've found that the guidelines of the Gospel help protect me from self inflicted miseries and trials, and make those that I do face into strengthening experiences.

How I live my faith

I am just about to serve a 2 year mission in the Rancho Cucamonga area in California. I will be sharing the Gospel in the Spanish language to all who will listen to me, and I am so excited to give others the opportunity to accept this Gospel which has blessed my life so meaningfully. I also set guidelines early on to help me stay on track and achieve my goals such as serving a full time mission, attending college to create a foundation for my family, and stay worthy so that I may be sealed to my future eternal companion and children.
