Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm a Drummer, I Skateboard, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 21 years old and I am from Lindon, Utah! Something that I am big into is music. Music is something that really helps me express my feelings, and it is also very calming. Music is one of the things that can invite the spirit fast, and also the thing that can make it vanish. I also love to Skateboard because it is a perfect way to take the edge off of a stressful life. I am the oldest of 4 and it is a blast! It helps me work to set an example for my brothers and sister so that they can see how happy and fun life can be when you strive to live by the example of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a LDS family ever since I was born. Although I was born into the faith, I still had to gain the sure knowledge that the church was true. It wasn't until I was 18 years old that I really started to wonder if the church was true. I studied it out and really gained a testimony that it is true and I couldn't be more sure! All it took was to read the Book of Mormon and ask God if it was his word. Through reading and having the faith that God would answer my prayer, I recieved my own personal whitness that it is His word. Now I know for sure that the church is true, that Joseph Smith restored the Gospel, and that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. Being a Mormon really gives me so much freedom in life because I don't have to hide anything or have to ever worry about where I am going after this life. Being a Mormon is the ultimate!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by expressing it to others. I know something that is more presious and powerful then all the riches in the world so I have to talk about it! It's like if someone found the cure for any illness, but they never told anyone...That would just be messed up! I also do service for others and lead my life by example so that others can see how happy I am to be a member of God's church. The joy that the gospel brings is just something that you can't compare to, so people need to know about it. This life is one that is filled with temptations and trials, and this Gospel is the perfect way to overcome all of that.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jonathan
The Book of Mormon is proof that God still speaks to man today and that we are now able to have a Prophet that is on the earth right now. The Book of Mormon is the only Book that has a promise that by divine power, we can know, for ourselves, that it is the word of God. The Book of Mormon also testifies that God loves all of his children. Show more Show less
