Hi I'm Jared

I grew up in Idaho. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy reading, origami, drawing, magic tricks, and spending time with my friends and family. I am studying at BYU-I. I am an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has a very long history of LDS involvement, and I am striving to uphold the legacy my family has. I have a very large family, and all of them have amazing testimonies. I have felt the truth of the Gospel, and I have the desire to share that truth.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission in Nebraska.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

Jared
The Church only allows those who have been baptized to enter the temple. The reason for the exclusivity is because of the sacred nature of the ordinances we perform there. In the temple, we perform baptisms for deceased persons, and bind husband and wife together for eternity, along with their children. Show more Show less
