Hi I'm Jonathan Greenland.

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Missouri. I enjoy playing Boardgames, Cardgames, and Videogames, and spending time with friends and family. I am 22 years old. I have 4 brothers and 1 sister. I am the second youngest. I am going to college at BYU in Provo, UT.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the spirit I've felt in this Church. In the Bible it says, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find..."(Matthew 7:7). And that is what I've done: I've prayed and thought about this church and what it teaches. And I feel the spirit constantly telling me that this is the church I need to be in; this is Jesus Christ's church.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church, I get to do a lot of the same things that Jesus does. I do something called Home Teaching where I go and visit a few members of the church at least once a month and share with them a short spiritual message and offer to help them in anyway I can. And I also have my own home teachers that come and look over me. I have also helped teach some of the gospel classes in church to those who don't know very much about the LDS Church. And whenever I do these kinds of things, I always learn more and more of the gospel and what I can do to improve my own life.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

I was a missionary myself and I just want to say: Don't be afraid of inviting them over. They're not going to force you to read anything or do anything that you don't want to do. They'll just invite you to listen and do those things that will let you know what Mormons really believe. But most importantly, they'll invite you to do things that will help you feel the Spirit of God. Feeling the spirit of God is kinda hard to describe. It can be really subtle and unnoticeable at times. But if you listen and do those things that the missionaries invite you to do, then your ability to feel that spirit will be amplified. And when you feel that wonderful feeling, then you will know that this is what God wants for you. Show more Show less
