Hi I'm Jon

I'm a woodworker, I'm a swimmer, I love the Utah Jazz! and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love wood work/carpentry work. I did that in Highschool and have really enjoyed working with my hands and creating things out of wood. Also I love swimming, I was on the swim team in highschool. I am 20 years old, and am currently serving a mission in Georgia for my Savior Jesus Christ. This Mission has blessed my life and other peoples lives in so many ways and has brought me so much closer to God.  

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon all my life. But there was a point in my life where I really needed to find out if this Church and what my parents have always taught me through out my life is really true. I really started to think about it when part of my family left the Church after years of serving diligently in the church and then fell away from it and joining another denomination. I didn't understand how they could leave it when they had such a strong testimony of it before. I realized that they stoped trying to strengthin there testimony, reading the Book Of Mormon, and lost desire to come to church as well as getting offended. They then began to fall away and let there testimony weaken. I started thinking more and more about my own testimony of the savior and our prophet as well as the Book Of Mormon, and if I really even had a testimony. As I was pondering about these things and what my parents have taught me about the Doctrines and principals of the Gospel, I committed myself to read the Book Of Mormon with real intent and then pray about it. I then took it to God and asked him if The Book of Mormon is truly another Testament of Jesus Christ. I recieved that answered by the Holy Ghost. The feelings I got were so strong that they sunk deeply into my heart and then I knew without doubt that the Book Of Mormon was true and that it brought all men closer to God. The Holy Ghost testifies of Truth and I know he is the 3rd member of the Godhead. It was such an overwhelming feeling because now I know why I am here and where I am going after this life. My Testimony strengthens everytime I read the Book Of Mormon.

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith right now in my life is, I am serving the Savior Jesus Christ for 2 years Full-time everyday. I am a minister of Jesus Christ, a servant of the Lord, I am a instrument in Gods hand, and I am inviting people to come unto Jesus Christ by helping them recieve the Restored Gospel that has been brought back to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and through Faith, repentance, Baptism, recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the end. After my 2 years are up as a missionary I will still continue to serve Jesus Christ by sharing this wonderful message and Gospel with family and friends.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?
