Hi I'm Jason

I love my wife and children and want to live together with them forever. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and a father of six children. I manage a company that builds modular homes. I enjoy sports and fitness activities, and making and fixing things around the house. I have been a volunteer soccer coach for many years and serve on my local school board. I try to be an influence for good in my community by defending strong moral values.

Why I am a Mormon

Missionaries were guided by the Spirit to the door of my parents on Thanksgiving Day over 40 years ago. My father was seeking answers about God and found them. I am a member because I have received answers to my own personal prayers and felt the assurance of the Spirit that it is the restoration of the church that Christ established when he walked the earth. I have seen and felt the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ to heal me physically, emotionally and spiritually. I have been greatly blessed as I have followed the teachings of prophets, both ancient and modern prophets on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live the gospel in my home each day by having prayer and scripture study each day with my family. It is important that I teach my children the importance of following the example of Jesus Christ and being guided by the Spirit in their lives to help them make good decisions and keep them safe. I have found joy in keeping the commandments of God, which provides me with protection from many of the troubles in our society today.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

We need a Savior because we are not able to perfectly keep the commandments our Heavenly Father has given us. In order to receive forgiveness for the human mistakes we make, we need a Savior who has paid the penalty for our sins through his suffering and crucifixion. We do not have power to overcome our sins by ourselves. We require the help of Jesus Christ. He provides us hope that we can return to our Heavenly Father again in spite of the mistakes we make on this earth. Show more Show less
