Hi I'm Jonah

I'm a Mormon. I've done food drives for Thomas J. Pappas School.

About Me

I'm a college student and working part-time to pay the bills. Also, I am an avid writer. I love to put my thoughts about the gospel in my journal. I feel I can understand the scriptures much better that way.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is where I have found the ultimate secret in knowing good from evil. That is, I've found the ultimate sieve and filter for knowing if deceptive ideas are right or wrong. And that filter is Christ himself. He guides this church. In 2nd Nephi it says that we need not suppose that after the Bible that "God will remain silent" for there is no such writing in any book in the Bible. This gospel is the only living and growing gospel on this earth bearing fruits from the one true vine, who is Jesus Christ. I testify these things not of myself but of Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I tell others of the gospel as frequently as possible. I love to go to labor in my current calling as a "Family History Consultant" in my ward. I also participate in something called Home Teaching, where me and a companion go and visit a member of the church and seek opportunities to serve and help them and teach them. We are like a big family in our ward.

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

We are told repeatedly by our prophet to have food storage for us and our families for up to one year. This is a rule kept worldwide. Imagine if we all did this, then in natural disasters we would be much better prepared. Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

My dad was a bishop. He was not paid. It is a simple reason. Christ was not paid either. And yet both are provided for in blessings. I testify to that. If you have any questions, ask me. = Show more Show less
