Hi I'm Jason

I'm from California. I'm a father of 4 girls and husband. I'm an electrical engineer. I love good movies and books. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and a father of 4 girls. I'm an Eagle Scout. I have degrees from BYU, University of Utah, and George Washington University. I marched in the drumlines at the Y and the U. I catch Drum & Bugle Corps competitions whenever I can. I work as an electrical engineer for a government contractor. I love movies and books. Tom Clancy and Brandon Sanderson are favorite authors. I love discussing politics and searching for the perfect hamburger and perfect country-fried steak. I visited the Holy Land in 2009. It was amazing to walk where Jesus walked.

Why I am a Mormon

I read The Book of Mormon when I was 15. I followed Moroni's promise in Moroni chapter 10 verses 3-5 and asked God if The Book of Mormon is the word of God and Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Through the Holy Spirit, God answered my prayer that it is. I know The Book of Mormon is true. Through similar means, I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and the Son of God and that Joseph Smith is God's prophet.

How I live my faith

I try to help my daughters participate in individual and family scripture study and prayers. I enjoy telling them stories from the scriptures about Jesus or Alma. I enjoy visiting with a few assigned families from my congregation to talk of Christ and ensure they have their temporal needs met. We call this hometeaching. A mormon congregation is called a ward. I enjoy talking about gospel doctrines during 2 church classes each Sunday. One is for experienced members where we study the scriptures. The other is for adult men where we study how to be better disciples of Christ and better husbands and fathers. Some of our study time this year will be studying the teachings of Lorenzo Snow who was prophet and president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1898 to 1901.
