Hi I'm Jason Barnes

I am a Mormon! I grew up and live in New Jersey with my wife and two children. We work hard and enjoy the outdoors daily!

About Me

I have been a member all of my life. I have a wonderful wife, and we have two beautiful daughters. I enjoy all sports and being outdoors as much as possible, but spending time with my family is my number one hobby. I am energetic and love to make people laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

This one is easy to answer.....when I follow the path that the Lord has for me, I have ALWAYS felt an uncomparable peace in my life. The joy that comes from serving and participating in God's plan is motivation enough to keep going. I am inspired by those that serve around me and I am energized by their examples. By doing this, I have come to know the Savior and what His sacrifice means to me. Each day, I have the opportunity to make choices that will bring me closer to my family, my friends, and my Heavenly Father. I am grateful for those choices and strive to make the right ones.

How I live my faith

Living the Gospel is not just a Sunday activity for our family. It is something we think about everyday from morning prayer to fulfilling Church assignments, to studying our scriptures there is something that I can do each day to bring me closer to my Father in Heaven. I have a calling or assignment in my community to look after the members of our church, to make sure that they are visited regularly and have the things that they and their families need. I get to see the effects of good men sacrificing their time and energy for others, it inspires me to do more myself.
