Hi I'm Jason
Well, first off I love this earth. I love to hike, bike, camp etc. And I also love music. I served a two year mission for the Mormon church in São Paulo Brazil and from that experience I fell in love with that land, its language, its culture and its food. I also studied in Jerusalem for a semester upon my return. What I took from that experience was that its not about walking where Jesus walked, but rather, walking how He walked. I am now married to the most wonderful woman I have ever meet. I study Commercial Music Composition and trying to make everyday worth remembering.
Why I am a Mormon
Why I am Mormon? Well, because my parents are Mormons. Why am I still a Mormon? Well that's a different question. I owe all that I am to this church. A friend of mine once asked me, 'Well what if you get to heaven and find out Mormonism was wrong? How would you feel?' I looked at him and smiled, 'Well my friend, I wouldn't regret being Mormon. What this church teaches brings me joy. That is good enough for me.' Fortunately for me, I also know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is literally the Church of Jesus Christ. How do I know that? Well I believe I know it by the same way the Apostle Peter knew that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the Living God; "flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto [me], but my Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 16:17) But perhaps the better question is: How can you know this too? Well the answer is likely more simple than you might have imagined. On the top of this page is a link that says "Request Visit." By clicking on this link and providing the requested information you can receive a personal visit from the Mormon Missionaries. As simple as it may seem this simple action will change your life. I know, because it changed mine. You will come to more fully understand your God and your Savior Jesus Christ and by so doing you will be happier and your life will have more meaning. So why not take a leap of faith and see for yourself?
How I live my faith
Jesus taught that "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." (John 7:17) That's one of the ways I know that what I believe in is true -- I do it. I believe that faith without works is dead, and likewise believe that works without faith are dead as well. I live my faith day by day. I try to emulate my Savior by going "about doing good" (Acts 10:38) and living my life in such a way that I can feel close to Him. The reality is that the Good News or Gospel of Jesus Christ is beautifully simple and simply beautiful. There is a cool scripture in the Book of Mormon that sums it up pretty good. It says "all that he [God] requires of you is to keep his commandments; and he has promised you that if ye would keep his commandments ye should prosper in the land; and he never doth vary from that which he hath said; therefore, if ye do keep his commandments he doth bless you and prosper you." (Mosiah 2:22)
