Hi I'm Jared Bagley

I am a senior at Logan High School and a future missionary in the Cape Town South Africa Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in North Logan Utah and I'm a senior in high school. I got my mission call to the South Africa Cape Town mission and will leave in a couple of months following graduation. I love sports, particularly basketball, which I've played for my whole life. I love to hang out with my friends, listen to music, and spend time with my family. I enjoy hobbies like chess, watching NBA games, and reading. I have a strong testimony of the gospel and strive to be the best disciple I can be.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church provides joy and hope that no other source can. I'm a Mormon because of my knowledge of a loving Heavenly Father and his loving son Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I've read the Book of Mormon and it has given me hope and direction in life. I'm a Mormon because I know that this is Christ's true church that was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. The happiness and blessings I've seen in my life is what has made me choose to be a member of the church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church weekly and worshipping, learning, and studying the gospel. I read and study from the Book of Mormon as well as other scriptures daily to increase my faith in Jesus Christ. Ultimately, I live my faith by trying to serve others and help others out as Jesus would want me to do. I live my faith by keeping the commandments, and striving to be a good example to others around me. I live my faith by being a friend to someone in need. I live my faith by giving thanks to my Heavenly Father for all the incredible tender mercies in my life and joy I've received.
