Hi I'm Jonathan Packard

I grew up in Utah skiing in the winter and riding dirtbikes in the summer. I'm always out for that next big thrill. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19 years old. I swam competitively for three years in highschool. I hit the slopes every winter and ski as much as I can. When the snow melts I kick start my dirt bike and head over to the motocross track. I love the addrenaline rushes from jumping, going fast, and trying tricks on anything. I have 5 younger brothers. I did a year of college before I headed out on my mission. I'm just starting the best two years of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon? Well I grew up in the church and have been a member all my life. I stick around because the gospel gives my life guidance. I know that without the church I wouldn't be where I am today and would've gotten into a lot of trouble growing up. I have stayed in the faith because of my love for our Savior. After all that Christ has done for me through the atonement and all the ways he has blessed my life, I couldn't leave. Nothing else could bring me such peace, comfort and happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the way I go about my business. I try my best to follow the teachings of the Savior and his church. I give service when I see needs and I try to follow the Saviors example and love others around me. Right now I'm really living my faith by sacrificing two years of my life to serve a full time mission. I represent the Lord Jesus Christ and am wanting to teach everyone who will listen. I bring a gospel message about a loving Heavenly Father and all the happiness and peace the restored gospel brings. I'm just out trying to help people come unto Christ.
