Hi I'm Jared

I am from Layton, Utah. I am 19 years old. I am preparing to serve a mission in Guadalajara Mexico. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have many interests and hobbies that keep me busy. My family loves to travel, I have seen many exciting places in the world, and love seeing new places. I am a huge sports fan. Friends and family refer to me as a "walking sports encyclopedia". My favorite sports to watch are the NFL, NBA and MLB. The sport I focused most on playing was basketball, and it is my favorite sport to play. I love spending time outside. I ride both road bikes and mountain bikes. Growing up in Utah, I was fortunate to have so many great places close by to mountain bike and road bike. I also enjoy hiking. In the winter time I enjoy skiing, and again Utah is the perfect place for someone that likes to ski. My favorite thing about all my hobbies and interests is that I get to spend time doing stuff with my family and friends. To me there is nothing better in life than spending time with the people you care about most!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, because living the Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought a happiness and peace to my life, that nothing else can. There is nothing that brings me greater joy, than knowing that there is a plan for me. That I have a Heavenly Father and Savior that love me and know my struggles and challenges personally. That my family can be together forever. That I can repent and be forgiven when I fall short. This gospel truly brings happiness, peace and perspective to life that nothing else can.

How I live my faith

I have had wonderful opportunity to serve in youth leadership positions in the church. I have helped plan and organize regular weekly activities for the young men in my area that are my age, as well as help assist the adult leaders in planning week long camps and other activities in the summer time. I enjoy being able to serve my fellow men through these callings. Currently I am preparing to serve a full time mission in Mexico! This will be my greatest opportunity to live my faith, as I help spread this message of happiness as a missionary.
