Hi I'm Jamison.

I'm a musician, an engineer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music. Everything about it, and every aspect of it. I play the guitar, I sing, and performing is part of who I am. I also really enjoy engineering and mathematics. I go to college and I'm trying to become a teacher or professor. I plan on getting a master's degree and maybehopefully beyond.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I would say I'm a mormon because I know it's true, and I know it's true from a long process of prayer and seeking. It's wasn't like I had some moment I just suddenly knew it was all true. It was a gradual building process. It's taken a lot of faith, prayer, scripture study, and patience, but I do know it's true, and I know it through the confirming witness of the Holy Ghost. 

How I live my faith

I read the scriptures every day, and I try to pray as often as possible. I try to follow the Savior's example. I know I'm not perfect and I mess up, but that's why Heavenly Father sent his son Jesus Christ to the earth. So that when we fall, He can pick us up, and we can keep on going.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Jamison.
For the most part, just about like anyone else. I have an iPod, I watch random youtube videos, I go to college, I go to the movies with friends, I celebrate the 4th of july with fireworks etc. Here's an example of a regular day of mine: I get up, say a prayer, do a quick workout, study the scriptures, get ready for school, head out to school, come home, do homework, hang out with/call my girlfriend, maybe hang out with some friends, say another prayer then go to bed. Basically the only common difference is we try to keep a pretty high standard of living, such as being careful of what kind of entertainment we have in our lives, maintaining our bodies and watching what we put in them, being kind and understanding to others, etc. because we believe the Lord has exemplified the kind of life we should life. I think it can be summed up as, doing our best to follow the commandments that the Lord has given, use wisdom to the best of our ability in all things in life, trusting in the Lord's revealed advice and then repenting when we mess up.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jamison.
We recognize Joseph Smith as a man called by God to restore the Church of Jesus Christ on the earth again. We do not worship Joseph Smith, but he was a very great man and a wonderful prophet. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jamison.
The Book of Mormon is a second witness that Jesus is the Christ. It helps confirm that the Bible is true. It was written by descendants of the house of Israel who, by divine guidance, were led to the american continents about 600 years before Christ's birth. Through the power of the Lord, Joseph Smith obtained and translated it into english in the early 1800's. It's the solidifying keystone of the Doctrine and Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

Jamison.
For me there are a ton of things that tell me there is a God. For example, There is just no way that our solar system could ever have randomly come to such perfect order, that the mass of each of the planets in such perfect organization that each one of them stay in their orbit, and so on. Then I look at this world, it's self maintained ecosystems, and it's natural beauties. A summer sunset after a rainstorm is one of the most fantastically colorful and awe striking sights to see. Just the lightened feeling I get when I think of these things is enough to place the thought in my mind that this was all created for us. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Jamison.
Families are eternal. Relationships within our families are some of the greatest gifts that God can give us, and we can be with our families forever. Show more Show less
