Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm a very happy Mormon!

About Me

I have been married to my perfect wife for over 5 years and we have one spunky daughter. I went to an all-boys high school in Michigan and joined this great church my senior year of college in Chicago. One year later, I served a mission in Hong Kong! I now live in beautiful NE. I love sports of all kinds especially outdoor sports like running, biking, and hiking. I work in consulting and enjoy opportunities to learn and have meaningful conversations about how to fix problems. My wife likes to laugh at me and I like to laugh at myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet and that he indeed did see God the Father and Jesus Christ that spring day in 1820. It took me three years of fighting and challenging that incredible story to come to this understanding, but after burying myself in the Book of Mormon and reading it in its entirety with an open mind and prayerful heart, I know that Joseph Smith restored this church. As a result of this, we have the opportunity to truly come to know our Savior, Jesus Christ, and live with our families together forever. Because of this, there is great purpose to my life and great peace knowing that this life has a plan.

How I live my faith

I try to follow the example of our Savior by being kind to those that I meet and happy all of the time. I strive to always bring a positive attitude and positive energy to any interaction that I have. Our family has family prayer each day and work very very hard to read the scriptures as much as possible. I treat my wife as the most important person in my life and work my hardest to help her feel everyday that she is a most wonderful daughter of God because she is.
