Hi I'm Jared

I'm a Mormon. And there is nothing so sweet as knowing that God loves you.

About Me

I am a computer technician. I love being able to help people solve their technology problems. I have completed a certificate and diploma in computing from my local College. I plan on going back to school to get a Bachelors of management. I love watching movies and playing video games. I am 30 and have never been married. I have a very positive outlook on the future.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon. But, as with all raised in the Church, I have had to come to my own conclusions about the truthfulness of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My testimony of this Gospel as come from many different experiences over the course of my life. Each time has been different but I have noticed, for the most part, that certain aspects of my testimony have come through the Holy Ghost testifying of truth to me through Hymns. It has been said that the song of the righteous is a prayer unto the Father. I have also come to know that my Father in Heaven and His Son Jesus Christ live and love everyone on this lovely planet that we inhabit. I know that Jesus Christ sacrificed His life so that everyone of us can return to Him and our Heavenly Father at the end of our lives. All he asks of us is to believe in Him and follow the things that He as taught us. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he translated the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon to be the Word of God.

How I live my faith

I attend my church meetings every Sunday. I am part of the executive council of my particular congregation. I make sure that everyone that attends my congregation is on the record and that their records are up to date. Apart from this assignment I go to a small number of people's homes each month to make sure that all is well with them and to provide a spiritual message. I also try each day to be kind and courteous to my fellow man and attempt to follow the example that Jesus Christ has set for us.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jared
The Book of Mormon is like the Bible. It is a collection of writings from prophets. It testifies of the divinity of Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for us. The major difference is that the events in the Book of Mormon take place in the Americas and it has only be translated once; by Joseph Smith. It tells of a family that is instructed by God to leave Jerusalem (about the same time as Jeremiah in the Old Testament) and are to take another family with them. When the families leave they are directed to a new promised land and there a civilization is started. The record takes place over the course of 1000 years. It includes the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and even includes His visit to these people shortly after His resurrection and ascension into heaven. It is the Word of God and is very sacred to me. Show more Show less
