Hi I'm Jon

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have three young daughters. In my free time, I enjoy running, golfing, working in the yard, traveling, and most of all spending time with my family. I work in financial services in NY, NY. I grew up in Idaho, went on a spanish speaking mission to Aneheim, CA, graduated from college, and then moved to NJ in 2005.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the gospel brings peace and joy to me and my family. I know that the scriptures and the words of the prophets and apostles come from God because they bring me happiness as I study, learn, and apply them in my life. The gospel brings purpose to my life and helps me understand the the reasons we face many of the trials and tribulations we face in this life. When I was young, my sister passed away. I was very close to her and I missed her and had a lot of questions about life. At that time, I did not have a testimony of the truthfullness of the gospel and needed to find out if it was true to know if I would see her again. I remember asking my father about the truthfullness of the chruch and he told me that I needed to find out if it was true for myself--that is what I did. I started reading the Book of Mormon and praying to know if it is true. I got an answer to my prayer after months of reading and praying as I prayed one night and had a feeling I cannot describe that helped me know that the Book of Mormon is true and the church is, in fact, directed by Christ.

How I live my faith

My faith effects my everyday life from the  decisions I make about how I prioritize and balance my life to small decisions I have to make each day. It is the single most important thing in my life. I have found that by doing the little things each day like reading scriptures and saying prayers, the gospel has become part of who I am.
