Hi I'm Jackson

Utah boy sent to the ATL. Who loves the outdoors. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am the second youngest of 7 kids, so 6 of 7. Im from Utah. I love anything to do with outdoors. Dirtbiking, Snowmobiling, Boating, Jeeping, anything outside. I love my family. I have 3 older brothers, 2 served missions, and 2 older sisters as well as a little brother. I love my friends. I have many friends out on missions right now. Two of my best friends are currently out as well and the other one just got his call. I love this church. I love our savior, Jesus Christ. And I love my Father in Heaven and everything he and his son do for me.

Why I am a Mormon

Im a mormon not only because I was born and raised in it, Im also a mormon because I have seen how the atonement of Christ has helped me in my life. It has helped me get through some very hard times I have been through. Ive had a few close friends and family die and the Plan of Salvation gives me great comfort that i will be able to see those people again. I love my family more than anthing in the world. They are my best friends and my greatest strength. The message the gospel brings of forever families or that i will be with my family for forever is one of my favorite parts. I wouldnt know what to do without them so Im glad to know that if I do my best and follow Christ, I can be with them forever. I love being a mormon because I know its the truth. I know it is Christ's church once again restored to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by trying to be as Christ-like as possible. Its hard sometimes because I have faults and problems as we all do. Im a very prideful person and I have to constantly strive to love everyone because they are all children of our Heavenly Father. Currently I am serving a mission in the Georgia Atlanta Misson and I love it. I love seeing how this gospel can help people turn their lives around and come closer to Christ. Serving a mission has been the greatest decision I have ever made.

Are Mormons Christians?

Jackson
Yes. We are the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We arent the church of Joseph Smith or the church of Mormon. Christ is the center of our religion. Thus we are Christians Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Jackson
Mormons view the Bible has holy scripture as long as it is translated correctly. The most correct version of the Bible is the King James edition. Mormons use the Bible alot, thats why we have it right next to the Book of Mormon in our combination scriptures. Show more Show less
