Hi I'm Jace

I’m a student, brother, and friend. I love to sing. I love to write. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I’m that guy who tells the joke that makes you laugh and roll your eyes at the same time. Being the youngest with two older brothers, I have learned to share my love for music without shame (and often by singing in the shower). I am a student trying to pick a major, just like you. I just learned to make my second favorite meal, fettuccini with tomato and basil (I already knew how to dish up ice cream). I love to learn, love, laugh, and live.

Why I am a Mormon

Life’s not always peaches and cream, but through times good and times bad, Jesus Christ “extends his arm of mercy towards them that put their trust in him” (Mosiah 29:20). I am a Mormon because I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. He sent his Son to save me, to make a way for me to become like him and feel true joy, to comfort me when sad, and heal me when broken; this, because he loves me. He restored the gospel of Jesus Christ through the Prophet Joseph Smith, because he wants me to know that families can be together forever; he wants me to know where I am from, why I am here, and where I am going; he wants me to see things as they really are, because he loves me. My Heavenly Father has provided scriptures including the Book of Mormon and has called Prophets and Apostles to lead me through the misty world of confusion and incertitude, and bring me to Christ, the only Savior, because he loves me. I am a Mormon because of the sure and constant witness from the Holy Ghost that these things are true. John 7:17 says “If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” Every day I test the Lord, he comes through. I know he will never let me down.

How I live my faith

I serve in my ward as an assistant ward clerk. This means that I get to crunch the numbers and help organize records so that my leaders can fulfill their callings in the best way possible. I live my faith by fulfilling my various responsibilities, but that is only part of how I live my faith. Another way is by smiling. Some people ask, “What’s happy in this world?” I hope that when people look into my face, they find the answer to that question.
