Hi I'm Jared Vance

I love to play piano, read, and work. And I am a mormon.

About Me

I play piano and enjoy the outdoors. I work at Harkins Theater. I am will be a missionary in a couple months in the Washington DC North area. For my mission I will speak Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because being one brings me happiness. It is something that makes me happy because of the knowledge I have received from the Book of Mormon and modern day prophets. Sharing the Gospel is also something that brings me happiness.

How I live my faith

I attend church every sunday when I can, and attend mutual regularly.

What is the First Vision?

Jared Vance
When Joseph Smith was young, he moved in a new town. In this town, religion was a huge subject. But with all the different churches, he was left confused on which one to join. With that, he was reading the Bible, and came across the verse James 1:5. Here is read," If any lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." When Joseph saw this scripture, he decided he would do exactly what he was told. He found a solitude place and prayed outloud. After his prayer, he was visited by God and his Son, Jesus Christ. He was told that none of the churches were right, and with the power of God would help bring the will of God on Earth. Show more Show less
