I just want you all to know that I am The Luckiest. I am the luckiest guy on the face of this earth. I have the most amazing people who surround me. I want all of you who are reading this to know that I love you dearly. You are the reason why my life is so wonderful. Your support has brought me through some of the toughest times of my life. Thank you. Now the real credit goes to the one who made it all possible. The Savior. Jesus Christ literally saved my life. Were it not for the Atonement of the Son of God I would be nothing. My friends, with Heavenly Father I am everything. I stand firm in what I know today. I know that I am worth it. I know that the Lord has forgiven me and I know that I am clean. I am clean! No one can take that away. Those in my past that have judged me, I thank you. You have helped me to be able to stand on my own two feet. You have helped me to become the man that I am now. I did not work as hard as I have for anyone. I did it for me and I did it with the help of the Savior. If you have a similar story to me I congratulate you. I also remind you as I am constantly reminded.. "unto whom much is given, much is required" (D&C 82:3). We owe it all to the Lord. I am pleased to be a servant of my Savior. Though I will never repay my debt, I am having the time of my life trying to pay as much back as possible. To those of you who stand in need of comfort, I am here. I want you to rejoice with me. Let me help you to stand on higher ground. There are blessings that are yours to claim. I want you to have them. My friends, this is a journey that we are all taking together. There isn't a single one of us that is better than the other. You are never too good to reach down to help one in need. The Savior spent his earthly ministry tending to those who made the poorest of choices. Others had difficult situations thrust upon them. Nothing was beyond his reach and that is still the case today. Those who had faith in Christ were healed. Bring your infirmity to the Lord. Whether you chose it or not, He will heal you. You NEED to be healed. Trust in the Lord with all your heart. He never has and never will lead you astray. Please be a friend and if you need a friend, allow someone to be your friend. I am your friend. All glory be to the one who made it all possible. I am The Luckiest.

I feel so much love in my heart. I love the times when I am able to just sit and think about all the awesome things in my life. The Lord has given me so much. I have the most amazing family. I miss them a ton. I especially miss my sisters. Seriously, they are my light. I have never seen anything more beautiful in my life than the beauty that lies in them. Without my sisters I would not be me. I have grown to appreciate their examples in my life. They all have been an example to me in different ways. They have overcome adversity, they have taught me how to laugh, they have shown me what it means to have unconditional love, and best of all they have shown me the divine nature of womanhood. I cannot thank them enough for their love and support. I bear my testimony to the world of "Jaren's Thoughts" fans... It does not matter how old you are. It does not matter how insignificant you think you may be. I testify that you do make a difference. You make a difference in the lives of ALL those around you. I learned this lesson from my sisters. They are true disciples of Jesus Christ... and I want to be just like them.
