Hi I'm Jared

I live in California but I ride all over. I'm a Mormon

About Me

 I am the youngest of six kids, so I grew up in a busy home, or maybe chaotic is the right word. I'm not very good at telling people about myself, I never have been. I recently got married to my better half, and we are working hard together to bulid a life and start a family. I enjoy reading, writing fiction, and riding motorcycles, or anything with wheels.

Why I am a Mormon

 First I am a mormon because I was born in the church. But I still am a mormon because I found out its truth for myself. I discovered it was true little by little reading the scriptures, listening to my parents and my chuirch leaders, and by serving a mission, I felts adn saw things that proved to me that this is the true church. I cknow from my study of the book of mormon, and the teachings of the prophets, that joseph smith was a true prophet of god, and that his church is restored to the earth today.

How I live my faith

 I try to give my all to my service in the church. by so doing o help others, but i mostly help myself. Shortly before I met my wife, I was in a very lonely and depressed time in my life. I decided that to overcome my depression i needed to forget myself, and throw myself into service in the church. It was not long before i was surrounded by frineds, and loved ones, and it was this devotion that prepared me to be a future husband. Now i continue to strive to be a devoted, loving and caring husband and a faithful active member of God's church.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Jared
 To me, one of the greatest proofs of God's existence is the natural world in which we live. The beauty of nature cannot be explained by science of man. Chaos does not create beauty. Its more than just nature though..... its the overwhelming since of awe I get when i quietly observe God's creations. The breath-taking view from the top of a mountain to being on my motorcycle on a deserted country road, to a sun set, to the way a fog bank flows over the hills where i grew up. If you want to know that God exists, find a calm place outside, sit, and observe. Dont think, just........ feel. Show more Show less
