Hi I'm Jared

I grew up in Idaho. I make videos, web sites, and iOS apps. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small farming and college town in Idaho. I studied broadcast journalism in college, and now I create websites, videos, and iOS apps for a fruit company in California. I love my family, music, my job, and my church.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents taught our family about Jesus Christ and about the church, and I've been a Mormon my entire life. I love the Savior and I love His church. There have been countless times in my life where my testimony (my personal beliefs and understanding of the gospel) have helped me through tough times, and countless others where I have been strengthened, taught, and brought to recognize the love that God has for all of His children. I have a particular love for The Book of Mormon and the many lessons it teaches about families, the Savior, and God's plan of happiness. Now that I have a daughter of my own, I'm enjoying teaching her about prayer, Jesus, and His church.

How I live my faith

I'm involved with activities for our children and youth - and I love spending time with them. It's amazing to work with such incredible young women and young men and see them serving each other and learning about Jesus Christ. I also work closely with our bishop, who leads our local congregation, to help with the administrative affairs of the church.
