Hi I'm David Jackson

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being outdoors, playing soccer, being with my family, and enjoying the everyday joys of life. I love a good movie, hanging with friends, and looking for adventures. But most of all, i love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Currently I am serving a mission for the Church in Missouri and sharing with others the same gospel that makes me so happy to be on earth.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it just makes total sense to me. Being a member of Christ's church makes me happier than anything else I've ever experienced. I have done a lot of fun things that make me happy for a moment or maybe for a day, but that happiness always fades after time. Being a member of the church makes me happy permanently. It doesnt mean that i dont have tough times, but it makes them a lot easier to bear knowing that I've got God on my side.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing what i know will make my father in heaven proud of me. It often means sacrificing my time and energy but i am happy to do it because i am blessed 100 times over for it. I love participating in church events and meeting other people. I also know its important to give service to others because its what Christ would spend his time doing if he were here right now. Another way I live my faith is by remembering to pray every day, Read and Study the Bible and Book of Mormon every day and then apply what I have learned into everyday life. What good is knowledge if you dont use it?

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

David Jackson
 Absolutely not! As Mormons, we all do our best to help whoever we can and whenever we can. Jesus Christ didn't just help some and ignore others, he helped as many as he could. As mormons, we all try to do the same. Just ask one of us and you may be surprised at how fast we jump to help you. Show more Show less
