Hi I'm Jamon

I'm a Mormon and the father of an addict.

About Me

I am the father of a son that has struggled with addiction. I have seen the Savior work in my life and his life to help me understand what God wants for me and for my son.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life but for the last 12 years I have truly come to know what it means to be a follower of Christ and to be blessed by the great gift of His atoning sacrifice. I have come to know how to wait upon the Lord and trust in His redeeming love. He has shown me that He has the power to save and that He can restore me to serenity and spiritual health. By his grace our sins can be forgiven. Through our weaknesses we can be brought unto Him and He will make us whole.

How I live my faith

I seek daily and hourly to know Gods will for me and to have the power to carry it out. I watch for opportunities to help others find peace and happiness in their lives through coming unto Christ. I attend and help conduct 12 step recovery meetings for those in addiction and for family members.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Jamon
Although I have always believed in God, I have come to understand how real and personal He is. I see this as I become willing to turn my will and my problems over to Him and ask Him what he would have me do. When I am patient and trust that He will show me what to do and what to say, He answers my prayers. Through the power of the Holy Ghost and a peace that comes from Him, I feel in my heart what His will for me is and I receive the power to carry it out. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Jamon
When I think of all of the things I have done or have failed to do and how it has caused so much pain and suffering for others, feelings of remorse and regret can bring me to the depths of despair. The healing power comes to me as I realize that the Savior has taken upon Him all my sins and has suffered all things, even death, that I and all mankind may be forgiven by coming unto Him.
