Hi I'm Jesse

I work hard. I play hard. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to be outside. I love to grab my bike and ride up in the mountains every chance I get. Being outside helps me to relax and see the amazing world that God has given us. Being up on a mountain lets me step out of the stress in my life and gain perspective. I'm a car guy. I enjoy cars of all sorts. I am a fan of classic Japanese, European, and American cars. I love rally cars, race cars of all types, 4x4s, go carts, motorized couches and pretty much anything with an engine. My love of cars inspired me to study Mechanical Engineering. I love being around people and finding out why they think the way they think. People are fascinating and everybody has a story to tell. I like to eat new foods. I like bacon and popsicles (though I've never had a bacon popsicle). I've broken both legs, but not at the same time. I can fit 26 large marshmallows in my mouth at the same time and the only musical instrument I can play is the air guitar. I cook a mean beef stew. I build turbocharged engines for fun and I can't dance.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel gives me balance in my life, reminding me of what is most important and how I can achieve that. The eternal perspective I get from knowing God's plan really does change things. It's so easy for me to get off track with all the distractions life provides, and that's why I'm so grateful God has given modern day prophets to guide and warn us of spiritual dangers.

How I live my faith

Living my faith means that faith is more to me than just a Sunday thing. My faith in God colors all my actions and has an effect on every aspect of my life. It means trying my best every day to be just a little better. Sometimes it means giving up what I think I want right now for what I know God wants for me. In the end It always means being able to have peace of mind and peace of heart.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Jesse
Nope, just one mom for me! It's funny to me that something so obscure gets so much attention and misunderstanding. Polygamy was once a practice for Mormons but was discontinued over 110 years ago. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Jesse
God is our father in a very real sense. While most people's concept of God is that he is a far off being, who we can not relate to. As a Mormon, I know that God is very real and as near to me as I allow. As a son of God, I also have the potential to eventually become like him through the grace of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
