Hi I'm Jon

I grew up In Arizona. I love my family beyond measure and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports. Anything that has to do with it. Watching it, playing it, talking about it. You ask my family and they'll probably say I drive them crazy with how much ESPN I watch! I love a good movie that tells a good story. Same way with music. Im a huge rock fan but I can listen to alot of anything. I pretty much always find myself looking at the glass half full and then figuring out what to do to fill it up after that so Id say I got a positive attitude and I think thats the best way to go.

Why I am a Mormon

How do I find peace? That’s a question we all ask right? We all want the overwhelming joy. We pursue it constantly. For myself personally I’ve found it. The comfort I feel right now. My life hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows. I’ve had my share of hard times just like we all have. But, with the gift of the Holy Ghost and the mercy of Christ I’ve been able to overcome my trials. I’ve had to climb up my own mountain of trial and I’m still climbing it. But no matter how hard it gets God is always there. Being a part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has blessed me in more ways than I could ever describe. I can’t say the smallest part of how I feel but I know its all real. I’ve got an incredible family who loves me and supports me. I’ve made friends in my life that I know will last forever and most importantly I’ve got a savior, Jesus Christ. He paid the price so that I could overcome my faults and my weaknesses. He laid down the path and his own life so that I could return and live forever with my Heavenly Father if I follow him. And I Know that HE LIVES TODAY. He watches and guides us and through him we have an amazing Plan of Salvation. I’ve got a Heavenly Father. Who showers me with blessings. I know that thanks to him all of dreams will turn into a reality. I can be together with my family forever and live for time and all eternity with Heavenly Father. I’ve been given the chance to receive all that my Heavenly Father has to give and I’m walking the path that leads back to him. I’ve received the peace that I always hoped to find in life. My name is Jon Runner. I’m a missionary for the Lord. I love my family, my friends and most of all My Savior Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father. I’ve received the peace I’ve always wanted. And I’m a Mormon

How I live my faith

I live my faith by obeying all of Gods commandments that he has given me and when I fall short I repent and move forward and dont look back. Right now Im serving as a missionary for the church in the Chicago Illinois Mission and Im loving it! Im helping people recieve the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I live life the best I can and I rely on Christ and Heavenly Father for all the rest and they send me the Holy Ghost to comfort me. The Holy Ghost helps me live my life in a way to have fun but to also remain clean. I go around teaching everyone about the church because thats what the church is for. Its for everyone. No matter where you are or where your from having the gospel of Jesus Christ will give your life more blessings you could even hold onto.
