Hi I'm Jayce

I'm a college student, preparing to enter Medical School, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I have been married for about a year and a half, and I am currently finishing up my last undergraduate year of college with my sweet wife. I returned from an LDS mission a few years ago to Africa and fell in love with the African people, as well as the food. Ever heard of Fufu before? It's great! I love my wife, human physiology, emergency medicine, hiking, camping, rollerblading, panda express, and especially being a mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

Why would I not be a Mormon?! Everything in my life which is good and meaningful has come as a result of my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and my faith in Jesus Christ. I have been provided with a strength, happiness, and perspective on life which can not be found anywhere else.

How I live my faith

I try to become more like the Savior everyday.

Why did your church previously practice plural marriage (polygamy)?

Jayce
We believe that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Although many things in life and society do change, He does not. He loves His children and will command what he sees fit to best meet their individual dynamic needs. At certain times in the history of the earth, God has commanded some of His children to practice plural marriage in an effort to further His purposes and work. King Solomon and David were good righteous men who were commanded to practice plural marriage. They only sinned in those wives that they took which were not given them(or commanded) by God. Likewise, in the early history of the church in our day, God commanded certain people to practice plural marriage. When God commanded it, the righteous obeyed. When God commanded that it should be stopped, the righteous also obeyed. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jayce
The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. It testifies of Christ just as the Bible, and contains the fulness of the gospel. The book was written by ancient Prophets who lived on the American Continent during the time of Christ. These are the "other sheep" of which Jesus spoke about in John 10:16. Their writings recount experiences of destruction and despair from sin, and comfort and peace through remembering their Savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
