Hi I'm Jonathan Peter A.

I'm a husband. I'm a Mechanical Engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Mechanical Engineer and my lovely wife is a Licensed Practical Nurse. We have no children, we haven't been able to have any so far. We live in Canada and are loving the challenge life brings. I love music, film, hiking and really have interests in just about everything.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because in this church I have found answers to all life's questions. I am a Mormon because being a member of this church has taught me about how I can communicate to My Father in Heaven and ask Him about whether or not what I do in life is right. He always answers me and lets me know when the path I choose is good or not. Life is full of peace when we can learn to do this, despite how tumultuous the journey can become.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time. Since life can be distracting I place simple essentials first in my life and let the rest fall into place with faith in God. When I pray to Him and read His holy scriptures each day and strive to live His commandments and serve Him, life just works, and is a joy to live. I love to serve along side the Youth. Although my present responsibilities are not directly related to the youth I love every chance I get to have fun with them and help them. Having good leaders as I grew up was such a great thing to have as support, so I hope I can be the same.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Jonathan Peter A.
Equality of men and women is something that is fundamental to Mormon beliefs. Men and women in the plan of our Heavenly Father are equal in worth and in the weight of their roles and responsibilities. Because gender is something we have always had and will continue to always have, our roles and responsibilities indeed are different. This does not mean however that this makes us of any less worth or value compared to the other. This simply means that we have the opportunity to help each other and learn from each other to be as effective as we can as spouses and as mothers and fathers. Since we are all equal in this way knowing who we are can bring us an increased sense of purpose and joy as we come to understand why this is, and move forward to fill the measure of our potential as sons and daughters of God.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Jonathan Peter A.
Mormon temples are places where we can "find our bearings" in this life. It's a place where we make sacred covenants, or promises, with our Heavenly Father that make it possible to return to live with Him. In the temple we also help extend the same blessings to our families who have gone before us, making it possible for them too to make it back to our Father's presence. Show more Show less
