Hi I'm Brett Jones

Im from California, I love fishing, playing sports and being a husband.

About Me

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been attending the Mormon church my whole life. I was baptized and confirmed a member when I was 8 years old. I enjoy playing sports, especially basketball. As a young man I participated in martial arts, achieving the rank of black belt. I am a Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts. I love the outdoors! Going camping and fishing with my family and friends is always one of the things I look forward to the most every summer. I was just recently married in the Mesa Arizona Temple on August 2 to my beautiful wife Briana and am now living in Provo Utah, attending school.

Why I am a Mormon

It has been a great blessing to have had the restored gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I really dont think that I would be a very religious person if I was not a member of the Mormon church. Im sure that I would still believe in God and try to live a good life but I am someone who needs to know the answers to everything and I need a detailed explanation of why it is that way. The Gospel truths of the church answer all of my questions and needs, even those that other religions dont have the answers to. It makes sense to me and I am always learning new things that are helping me to better my life. I feel the Spirit and close to God and my Savior Jesus Christ as I do the things the Lord commands and follow the teachings of our living Prophet. It gives me hope and is a comforter to me knowing that there is a living Prophet on earth today that receives revelation from God, to lead and guide his children on the earth. The best part of it all is that you can trust him and know that he will never lie or lead you down the wrong path.

How I live my faith

When I turned 19 years old I stopped all that I was doing in my life and I chose to serve a fulltime mission for the church. I was called to the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission where I just recently completed two years of service to God, my fellowmen and where i learned remarkable life lessons. I enjoy serving and helping others out, it gives meaning to my life and it teaches me to be unselfish. I attend church every sunday where I participate in gospel classes and learning. I regularly study scriptures from the Bible and Book of Mormon which uplift me and help me to better undertsand Gods plan for me in my life.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Brett Jones
The current Prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Thomas S. Monson. He has been called of God to fill this sacred calling as the Lords mouth piece and serves faithfully and diligently to serve all of Gods children, just as God would have him do. Show more Show less
