Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm from Bennington, Nebraska. I love the sport of wrestling and lifting weights. I attend Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jonathan. I enjoy working out, lifting weights and eating lots and lots of food. I was a wrestler back in high school and still love the sport to this day. Right now I'm studying in college as a freshman and I am so excited to take in the college experience. I do miss my family and friends back at home, however. I love my family, and with nine of us, there's a lot to love. I enjoy spending time with friends, camping, listening to music and going to movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have received a witness and testimony that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. Even though I was raised by parents who were members of this church, I still had to find out for myself if it was true, and that is exactly what I have done. I know that this church is the only church on the face of the earth today that is led and guided by living prophets who receive direction from God and Jesus Christ. For me, everything in this church, from its values and teachings to the way its faithful members live their lives, just makes sense. I believe that anyone who has an open heart and wants to learn more about this church will find answers and will see what I have seen. This is a church that will change lives for the better and truly make us happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church services every sunday, reading the scriptures regularly, saying prayers to my Father in Heaven and by simply trying to be like Christ as best I can on a day to day basis. I believe that membership in the Mormon church is challenging, but rewarding. I love to live my faith. Over the years I have found that by attending church and faithfully offering myself and my talents to others around me, I have become a better person and have seen more fulfillment in my life.
