Hi I'm Jon

I'm from a small island in Alaska, and currently serving a mission in the Nevada Reno area.

About Me

I grew up in Wrangell, Alaska. Tiny places are fun, but I also like the city. After high school I went to a year of fun at BYU-Hawaii which is where I might return after the mission. I enjoy the outdoors. Mtn biking, quads, snowboarding, anything that gets my adrenaline going and a smile on my face.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been born and raised in the Church and as a young child attended every week I could with my family because it was expected of me. As I grew up, I realised more of a desire in me. Through my life I've learned there's nothing really more that makes me happier than by living the gospel of Jesus Christ and striving to follow his example. Over the past few years I've really gained a deep appreciation and a testimony for myself of why it's 100% worth striving for. I enjoy seeing others experience these life changing joys that I have found for myself.

How I live my faith

The best example who we could ever look up to is Jesus Christ. He lived a life full of love for us all. Sadly, it's difficult for anyone to live as he did, but we can all try our best. Living by the gospel has helped me in every aspect of my life to become a better person. It's definitely harder than it sounds, but always ends up being the right path. We can always rely on him through our prayers and personal study. Asking for his daily guidance can help us through our difficult times and trials that we sometimes face. I try the best I can to be an example to those around me by practising the message that I am called to preach.
