Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm a Southern Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, Dad, and Grampa married many years, with children and grandchildren. I try to stay fit, love to run, enjoy hiking, biking, and being outdoors. I am now a retired member of the Army National Guard and counted it a privilege to serve. I'm a morning person, an early riser, and love the quiet and solitude spent alone studying, contemplating, and communing with my Father above before starting my work day.

Why I am a Mormon

In retrospect, through my many years of membership in the church, I have felt feelings and impressions that have stirred my heart. As a result, I have received personal assurance that God lives and, that Jesus is - who the prophets and apostles said He is the Son of God and my Redeemer. This personal relationship with my Creator has helped me through life's trials and, it has given me purpose and happiness.

How I live my faith

 I have served in many different positions in the church helping where I can. I served a Mormon mission many years ago to the country of Chile which began a life of service that has made me a better man. I love spending time with family and friends. I have found out several things while living my life Sometimes things will get better despite all our efforts to improve them. Things in life seldom turn out as expected. Often, it's better to keep my mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt. In this life there is no substitute for experience. Time and chance happens to us all. Love deepens with age. Giving my will to God really is the only surrender that becomes victory. There are many questions in this brief life that will never be answered. The greatest battles in life are fought within the confines of our own soul. Paradoxically, keeping God's commandments does not confine rather, it liberates. Most importantly, the love of my Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ surpasses all understanding.
