Hi I'm Jonathan Richardson

I love sports, boating, and anything in the outdoors, and Im a Mormon.

About Me

I love to kick back and watch a football or a basketball game. I love to play any sports really and I do so very often. I have never been a perfect guy, but I have always been blessed in my life, to know that my family is always there for me. I have four sisters and no brothers so while growing up I was always outnumbered. I have gone through almost joining the Marine Corps and although that is not a bad thing to do and many of my friends continued that path without me, I am so glad that I was led to serving a mission instead and who knows what will come later on?

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I have felt the trials of faith being shaken and through the Book of Mormon have had my faith Solidified. I think everyday about what my life would be like without the direction that I receive from the Gospel. I used to be a little confused about how to live my life, but once I started to just trust in God, I was comforted with what I needed to do to straighten out my life. I know that you can feel that very power of Gods love for you, if you just seek it out, and keep your heart and mind open!

How I live my faith

I am currently in Houston Texas seving as a full time missionary for the church for the next two years! I have dedicated this time in my life to serving and loving the people of Houston. I have loved sharing the message of the (Gospel) "Christs plan for us." I have seen that in serving others, I have come to learn so much more about the Savior than from just trying to study his life. I know that there are hard challenges that we go through and I myself have gone through some of them, but the faith and strength from the atonement of Christ overcomes all.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Jonathan Richardson
God has asked that the full truth be shared with EVERYONE that no man may say in the last day.... that they didn't know. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Jonathan Richardson
We believe that the Bible is the word of God, given through his Apostles and Prophets in the days of old. Through generations the bible has been translated time and time again, and now it stands with some of the simple truths of Christs teachings being either removed or complicated. That is why there are so many different views on what the scriptures teach, and so many churchs created for those views. We believe that God has restored those simple truths and clarified the complicated view through the Book of Mormon which is a record of the ancient inhabitants of the Americas. Show more Show less
