Hi I'm Jared

I come from England. I love my family, I love music. I am a missionary serving in Norway and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jared and I grew up in England. England is a beautiful lush green country that I will always love. The church isn't so big over there so it was a struggle to grow up with you being the only Mormon in your school. I am grateful for that though, as the gospel means so much more to me now. I love music and have a natural talent of being able to hear something and play along with it. Almost like it's natural. I could play on my bass for hours just jamming with people. In my last two years of college I took an A-level course of Music Technology. I love pieceing different peices of music together and making one sound, I can definitly feel the music that I create. I am someone who likes to help people. I feel my best when I am helping people. Family means everything to me, that's why I love the plan of Salvation so much. My greatest goal and dream in life is to find an eternal partner, have a family and be with them with Heavonly Father forever. I can think of no greater joy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because everyday I can frequently see the changes in me that it's teachings give me. The Gospel completes me and offers me the greatest desires of my heart. I know this because I have asked those questions of the soul, my soul. I have recieved those answers through The Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ, Our living Prophet and by living the churchs teachings and principles. There is truly nothing else I would rather have in this world. There have been many times where Heavonly Father has answered my prayers that have determined my destiny and the path I take down this life. By being in this church and abiding by it's teachings I feel Heavonly Fathers love for me each day, which desires me to be a better person, which makes me more happy. That is why I am serving a mission, becuase I want to tell people that all is well. They have a Heavonly Father who cares for them and loves them. I want them to feel the joy that I feel, that the world can't offer. Only the joy of the knowledge of Jesus Christ and his Atonement and Heavonly Father, and how we can live with him again, free from the burdens and sorrows that face our lives. I know that my Redeemer lives, how comforting that is. By knowing that provides me with hope and peace that all is well in a confused and scary world. The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints offers that to anyone. I invite you to search and discover this gospel. And when you do, you will come to the knowledge that the joy I feel is most desireable to the soul.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by studying the scriptures each day and trying to be like the Saviour.
