Hi I'm Jared

I love the outdoors, I'm athletic, I'm adventurous, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary. I love to snowboard, hunt, fish, hike, camp, run, bike, and play sports; I have no preference which one I play, just as long as I play. I'm the oldest of 4 children, and absolutlely love my parents, my brother, and my two sisters. I enjoy working with computers and enjoy learning.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon simply because God has told me to be. I have been raised in the church but I got to the point I needed to really dig in, study, and find out for myself if this is the truth. Many, many people have told me that they knew that this is the true church but I didn't want to believe them, or their words, I wanted to know for myself. That's exactly what I did. After several months of reading the scriptures, praying, and attending church meetings, I came to the knowledge of the truth of this church. I have felt the Holy Ghost bear testimony of it. I can say without a single doubt in my heart, and with every fiber of my being that God lives, Jesus is the Christ, Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, and this church is God's true church. I know that through Joseph Smith, our loving Heavenly Father has reached out to us and showed us the way to return to live with Him. Because Heavenly Father has told me this is the truth, I will go as far as to say that, if it came down to it, I would rather suffer death than to deny what I know to be true.

How I live my faith

I am not a "Sunday-Morning Christian". I strive my best to live what I've been taught every single day. I strive to obey God's commandments for He has truely taught them to me. As a missionary, I go everyday to talk and teach random people and try to share with them what I know to be true. I continually strive to become better each and everyday because I know Heavenly Father wants me strive to be perfect even as He is perfect.
