Hi I'm Jason

I'm a Mormon. I'm 20 years old living in Arizona. I'm called to serve in the Florida Jacksonville mission.

About Me

I'm preparing to go on a mission to serve the Lord in Jacksonville, Florida. I'm the youngest in my family. I enjoy reading books. Any book that I find that looks interesting, I will read. Enjoy hanging out with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I wanted to be a member of this church, because I have seen the blessings that come from being a disciple of Jesus Christ. I love everything about the church, and what they do. We get to do great things in the temple. Everything that we do in the temple is sacred, but not secret. One of the things you can do in the temple is do baptisms for the dead. We do it for people that had never had a chance to hear the gospel . I am also a Mormon, because we have standards in our church. We have commandments to live by. Like the Word of Wisdom, and the Law of Chastity. The church teaches us that families can live together forever. I know that Heavenly Father loves me, and cares for me. That he would never leave me, to do everything while I'm on this earth. I know that we as humans can't do everything by ourselves. I like to share my testimony, that I know this church is true. That the scriptures are true to me. That our prophet on earth today President Monson is Heavenly Father's mouthpiece.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday. I read my scriptures everyday, and ponder upon them so I know what I'm reading. By keeping the commandments everyday. Living by the Word of Wisdom, which is: I don't drink alcohol, tea, coffee and I don't smoke tobacco. I live by the Law of Chastity. I give proper respect to women, girls, and children. I pass and prepare the bread and water for sacrament during church. I go home teach three families, and teach them a lesson. Me and family have family home evening, which is having a lesson. Reading scriptures together as a family. I go to seminary during school, which is scripture study. So I can have a better understanding of the scriptures.
