Hi I'm Jason.

I'm a Mormon. I joined the Church when I was 25 after spending many years looking for answers.

About Me

I'm currently on active duty service in the United States Air Force, and have served two deployments with more to come. I'm a husband to a wonderful wife and a father to 4, soon to be 5 children.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, my family was never very religious. I lost my paternal grandparents when I was 10 or 11, and spent many years wondering what happened to them, why they passed. My parents, especially my mother impressed on me the importance of having faith in something bigger, that everything had meaning to it. When I was 18, I met one of my best friends about a year before he left to serve his mission. Before he left he asked me a question that would stick with me for the next 7 years, until I met another very good friend who had also served a mission some years before. A few years later, on a Sunday afternoon, that second friend asked me a question from the Missionaries which changed my life forever, that I knew was coming from the moment I woke up, and to which the only answer I could give was "Yes". 3 months after that day I was baptized, and later confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Since then, my faith in my Lord and Savior has sustained me through over 300 days being deployed, good times and bad.

How I live my faith

While I'm at home, I've taught children's Sunday School, and helped organize activities from summer holiday picnics, to chili cookoffs, fall festivals and winter celebrations. I also enjoy going and visiting other families from church and look forward to being able to share those experiences with my sons.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Absolutely! When a couple is sealed, or married in the temple for time and eternity, they covenant with God to honor and care for each other, to treat each other with love and respect. In doing so, they honor their covenants to the Lord, and can live together forever, both in this life and continue that relationship after death. Show more Show less
