Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 5, with 2 brothers and 2 sisters. I am an athlete and I love playing basketball, football, and volleyball. I also compete in the long jump for my college track and field team. I love to read, spend time with my family, and I enjoy woodworking. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Virginia Richmond Mission and I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and I have prayed and asked God to know if it is true. As I have done this, I have felt the Holy Ghost bear witness to me that it is true and of God. And because I know that the Book of Mormon is true, I also know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church. Although I was born into a Mormon family, I had to come to know for myself if the church was true. I couldn't just rely on my parents or other people, I had to know for myself. This knowledge didn't come all at once, but as I have searched for answers in the scriptures, and as I have prayed, I have come to know with an ever deepening conviction that this is the Lord's church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to better myself each day, and trying to live more like our savior, Jesus Christ. Right now, I have the great opportunity and blessing to be able to share His gospel full-time in Virginia. I am able to help others come to know of Jesus Christ and His restored gospel and I am able to help these people live with more peace and happiness.
