Hi I'm Jace

I live with my wife in North Logan Utah. I love martial arts, learning languages, economics, and history. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a newly married college student studying Finance at Utah State University. I love reading and learning as much as I can about Austrian Economics, history, political philosophy, world events etc. I also enjoy martial arts, speed memorization, and running our online business. I absolutely love being married to my best friend and providing for our small family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me happiness. There have been many times in my life which were very stressful or discouraging, but I still have peace in my life even when there is so much to do. I feel happy even when there are setbacks. At the end of the day, isn't just being happy what we really want? I am happy as I live my faith. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

As a college student working to graduate without debt, there are a lot of demands on my time. I live my faith as I sacrifice my precious time to come closer to God and serve the people around me. I've decided to be actively involved in the church no matter how busy I become. In addition to attending church, I regularly research my family history then do baptisms and other ordinances in our temples for my ancestors. I generously give to the church in the form of tithing and other offerings to help the poor. I live my faith by making God and his church a higher priority than anything else.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

I can see why some people think it is strange that only certain people can go into the temples. It seems like we are trying to keep something secret, but that really isn't the case. If someone has something that is extremely sacred and special, they would probably only share it in person to someone who would respect it. The church encourages everyone to enter into the temple, but because it is so sacred, only people who understand how special it is are allowed to enter. It is not secret, it is sacred. That is why the church does not allow everyone to enter the temples. The purpose of entering the temple is to make special promises with God, help those who are deceased to do so and learn more about our potential as his children. That is extremely sacred to us.
