Hi I'm Jared R.

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I are huge college athletics fans. Mostly football. We make it a point during the college football season to watch as many games together as we can. We cheer mainly for our alma maters, but will watch just about any team. I have my law degree so I enjoy keeping up on all things legal. I am a techie and enjoy reading up and playing with the newest technology.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are true. A little over 10 years ago I read the Book of Mormon. When I finished reading the book, I knelt in prayer to know if it was true. When I finished the prayer, I received a strong impression from the Holy Ghost that it was true. That experience has changed my life and has brought joy into my life ever since.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as the Ward Mission Leader in my ward. I assist in coordinating missionary work with our congregation and full-time missionaries. I am also a home teacher. Each month, I have the wonderful opportunity of visiting several families each month to share with them a brief message about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Most importantly, I am a husband who is married to the best wife in the world. I strive each day to be the best husband I can be.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jared R.
The Book of Mormon is a wonderful spiritual asset. While a separate book of scripture from the Holy Bible, it does not take away or contradict. It completely complements the Holy Bible. I have come to know Jesus Christ more fully by reading the Book of Mormon on a regular basis. Show more Show less
