Hi I'm Jason

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college junior studying Mechanical Engineering. My wife and I have been married since May of 2010. I love to play volleyball, racquetball, and ping-pong. I lived in Russia for two years as a missionary for my church, so I speak Russian. I love to cook. My favorite foods include scalloped potatoes, barbecue chicken stir-fry, hawaiian pizza, enchiladas, and pretty much everything else. I like to build and design things. I have an older sister and a younger brother. That's pretty much me.

Why I am a Mormon

In order to answer why I'm a mormon, I would only have to introduce you to some of my friends and family. What Christ said, is true, that "by their fruits ye shall know them." I have been a lot of places, and met a lot of good people, who do good things, who are not members of the LDS Church. However, their is a real difference in the lives of faithful Mormon people. They are good and happy and full of the same feeling that Christ had. I grew up surrounded by people like that, and it wasn't until much later that I realized just how good they were. Of course, that isn't the only reason that I am a Mormon. I asked God for a confirmation of what I thought was true. I studied the teachings of the Mormon church, I read the Book of Mormon and the Bible, and I prayed again. God does answer prayers. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is his church on the earth. The Holy Spirit has confirmed that to me many times. That's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

The church is set up so that you accept callings or assignments from your local leaders through revelation. I have been asked to be the assistant ward clerk in my local ward. That means that I keep track of membership records in the ward and make sure that necessary information and records get where they need to go. I am also a "home teacher" which means that I get to go once a month or so and visit members in my neighborhood. We see if there are any needs (illnesses, upcoming moves, etc.) and we help out wherever we can. I love it.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Mormons are huge into family! Every Monday night is set aside as a family night where you just get together with your family, play games, have a short gospel lesson, and eat treats. We believe that families can be together after this life if they honor and love each other. I am just barely starting to realize how awesome that is, being a newly-wed myself. The church has seriously supported my family a ton! Show more Show less
