Hi I'm Jared

I am a husband and father and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy fishing, camping, and spending time with my family and friends. I am going to college online in order to get my Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I am currently employed as a Social Service Worker. My family is very important to me and I do my best to make sure that my wife and children take a high priority and are not neglected. I believe strongly that the most important work we can do is within the walls of our home. I look for balance in church, home, work, and school and still struggle finding that balance, but through prayer and help from family and friends I am finding a way to balance everything.

Why I am a Mormon

Many people would assume that I am a Mormon just because that is what I was raised as, but that is not the only reason. I had to come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ and his gospel for myself. I gained my testimony through prayer and faith, and the feeling in my heart and a thought in my mind that all that I have learned is true. I am a Mormon because I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know this Church is the true Church of Jesus Christ here on the earth. I know that this Church was restored by a prophet named Joseph Smith and I know he talked face to face with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it was translated by the gift and power of God. It is meant to be a companion to the Bible and to testify of Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ lives and is the Savior of the World. I know that through him and only him we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. This is my testimony and why I am a Mormon. I hope that anyone that reads this feels of the truthfulness of this gospel.

How I live my faith

I very much enjoy the opportunities to serve others and help others each day. I do my best to live my faith through service and obeying God's commandments. I believe it is important to practice what you preach and be an example. I am not perfect, but I do my best each day to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and be a friend to everyone. I believe that being united is the best way to accomplish everything and a I try to bring that into any situation that my family and I face.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Jared
I really believe that there is a prophet like Moses that is alive today. I believe that he receives revelation for all of us today and that if we heed his teachings we will be happier. Show more Show less

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Jared
By reading these scriptures all together we can all come to a greater knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We can find answers to all of our questions about life and beyond. These books work together to teach us what we need to know to return to our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
