Hi I'm Jack

I was born and raised in Arizona, served a 2 year mission in Scotland, went to school in Utah, and now I live in Texas.

About Me

I've been married for six years and my wife have one child. I graduated about a few years ago and began working as an engineer and then moved into production supervising. I love to spend time with my family. I like to travel, play Ultimate Frisbee, play or watch basketball and volleyball, and I enjoy cooking. I spend time reading financial, western, cooking, and classic books. Under the right conditions I also like to cycle, hike, and swim. Most of my time is spent being a dad, which is the best tittle of all.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I have come to know for myself that it is God's church. Through out my life it has been proven to me through many experience. I have read the Book of Mormon many times. I know that it is a true book. I know that Joseph Smith's testimony and witness of God the Father and Jesus Christ is true. Heavenly Father has answered my prayers many times in confirmation of these things. I also know, through a process of trial and error, that by living the principles of this church I am a much happier person. Only through the gospel can I experience true peace in my life. Being a Mormon has blessed my life and the lives of my family members. I have witnessed miracles wrought by faith, but my faith is based on a personal witness from my loving Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by obeying God's commandments and trying to follow the example of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I volunteer in the community and at church. Currently I lead a group of priesthood brethren as an Elders Quorum President. One of my favorite callings and assignments was teaching the three and four year-old children in the primary Sunday school. A while ago I also served as a full-time missionary in Scotland. The church has provided me with many opportunities to get involved at church and in the community. I live my faith by standing as a witness of God at all times, in all things, and in all places.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

We recently had some friends over to visit with the missionaries in our home. The missionaries gave a brief presentation about how the gospel was restored through a living prophet, Joseph Smith, and presented our friends with a copy of the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ. They encouraged us and our friends to read the book and to pray to our Heavenly Father to know for themselves that it is true. They also took some time to answer questions that my friends had about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. At the conclusion of our discussion the missionaries prayed with us and asked if they could meet with our friends again. Show more Show less
