Hi I'm Jason

I'm a Mormon. I am a father, I find my greatest joy in my wife, children, and the gospel. I love outdoors, hunting, and trucks.

About Me

I work as an attorney, but I live to be a dedicated husband to my beautiful wife and the best father to my amazing children (3 boys, 3 girls). They are my life and without them nothing else really matters. I grew up working on my family’s farm and cattle operation. I learned the virtues of working hard and working smart. Back then I enjoyed spending time with my brothers working on trucks, team roping, and hunting. Today, I still want to restore that old Ford truck… this time with my kids. I enjoy pheasant hunting with my friends. I enjoy working with my hands. I enjoy spending time with my scouts. I work with immigrants from all over the world. It is satisfying to reunite families who have been separated by political and geographical boundaries.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family. My dad was a schoolteacher and my mom (she was trained as a school teacher) stayed at home. As a result, we weren’t rich but I wouldn’t trade it for any amount of wealth. I remember coming home after school to mom. My dad would get home from work and take my brothers and me to the farm so we could care for the cattle and horses. On Saturdays my dad would take us boys to the farm where we would spend the whole day working and playing. I could always talk to mom about anything in the world. She always encouraged me to follow my dreams. Through her example, I learned the true meaning of charity, as she gave up everything for her children. My dad always insisted that we help others whenever or wherever the need may lie. My dad always showed love and respect to my mom. My dad taught me, through his example, how I believe Joseph would have taught our Savior, Jesus Christ. I learned from a young age the “doing” aspect of Christ’s teachings. More importantly, I have lived the miracle of Christ’s teachings throughout my life. As a direct consequence of His blessings, influence, and direction I am where I am and who I am today. I love my Savior with all my heart and soul. Despite my imperfections, impatience, and failures, I know, without one ounce of doubt, His Spirit is walking with me each and every moment of my life. I know without a doubt, He knows me personally. I know He loves me.

How I live my faith

One day at a time. Each day contains it’s own unique set of miracles and blessings. Each day I experience my own spiritual growth and witness that of my children. Through prayer and scripture study I seek to live the Gospel through my own actions and interactions with others. I’m far from perfect, but the point is, I try and do….or try again. As a young man I set a goal of serving as a missionary, I enjoyed that blessing of service in Spain. I was greatly influenced by my older brother’s decision to serve. When I returned, I set a goal to marry for time and all eternity in the Lord’s Temple by the Lord’s priesthood authority. I met my sweetheart, just as she was preparing to serve as a missionary. Supporting her in her goals and dreams is important to me. When she returned from her mission service we were married in the Manti Utah Temple before heading to law school. I’ve had many occasions to exercise my faith in obedience and see subsequent miracles. As an attorney, it is important to me to deal honestly with my fellow man. As a father, I strive to provide a proper example to my children and nurture their emerging faith and testimony. I want to be the kind of example they can follow. I always want them to know they can be honest and open with me with questions about the world around them as they grow. I love to spend time together with my family. As a husband, I want my wife to never doubt or question my complete devotion to her. I cherish her.
