About Me

My name is Jon and I am from Alberta Canada. I am currently serving a mission for the church in Texas. Before i was a missionary i used to play football and basketball in high school and i loved it. Sports are very important to me and so is my family. I have 3 older sisters and great parents. After my mission i plan to go to school to become either an optometrist or a teacher and one day marry a beautiful girl and raise a family centered on Jesus Christ.a href="http://mormon.org/me/53VP/"img src="http://mormon.org/bc/assets/images/widget/profile-button/rectangle-im-a-mormon-brown-rounded.png" alt="I'm a Mormon."//a

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it makes me happy!! I love how the church is so centered on families! Without that knowledge of eternal families I don't know what i would do!! I do know that life would be very confusing without the knowledge I have gained from this great church!! God wants the best for us in every aspect of our lives and that is what this church has to offer!! It gives me the opportunity to reach my full potential!! I know that it is Jesus Chirsts church once again established upon the earth! I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that Thomas S. Monson is our prophet on the earth today!! The Book of Mormon is true!! I have gained that knowledge not by someone telling me its true but by reading and praying about it for myself!! I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and i love him very much! I love serving others!! To whoever reads this i know that as you continue to investigate the church and pray about it that you to will come to know that it is the Lords church once again established on the earth!! It truly will bless your life like it has blessed mine!! I love being a Mormon!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping all of the commandments of God!! I live the word of wisdom which means I refrain from drinking alcohol, coffee, tea, smoking cigarettes and doing other harmful drugs that destroy the body! I know that it is a commandment from God not to do these things and that is why I keep the Word of Wisdom!! I live the law of chastity and I read from my scriptures everyday!! In high school i used to think what does it matter if i read my scriptures everyday or not? But as i made it a goal to read from them everyday it changed my life!! It made me happier and brought me closer to God!! I know as we live all of God's commandments and not just some of them but every single commandment we will be blessed!!
