Hi I'm Jay

I grew up in a big city. Now I live in a small town. I own a collision repair shop. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy the outdoors. I like to fish and hike in the summer. In the winter I like to ice fish and snow ski. I am married and have three children. My oldest is in college, my youngest is in kindergarten. Snowmobiling and four-wheeling are also some activities that my family and I enjoy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have studied, prayed about and believe in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. The blessings of living the gospel are many and great in my life. The gospel gives me a sense of stability and happiness as I have come to know what Heavenly Fathers plan for me is. As Mormons we believe that the family is the most basic and important unit in the church. The things we are taught and study together as a family helps us to be closer and to have the true happiness and unity that Heavenly Father wants for all families. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I have been given many responsibilities and assignments. Although there is sacrifice involved in completing these duties, I believe it is through fulfilling these callings that I have grown the most as an individual. All of the leaders of our congregations are unpaid lay clergy. Every member is given a responsiblility. Taking part in these callings gives every member an opportunity for growth that otherwise would not be there. I love our Savior Jesus Christ and want to honor him by following his example.

How I live my faith

My faith affects every aspect of my life. Whether it is in my business, my associations in the community or at church, my dealings with others are influenced by my faith in Jesus Christ. I try to find the good in everyone and look for qualities they posses that are inspirational. I strive to treat others as they would like to be treated. It is my goal to lift up those whom I come in contact with. I am grateful to those that have uplifted me by word or deed and realize the influence for good it has had on me. I hope to be able to do the same for others.
