Hi I'm Jon

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to my beautiful wife Jackie, we have three boys that are always on the go. I am an RN and am working toward my bachelors degree.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I grew up as a member of the church I had plenty of times growing up when I had some concerns about what I believed and why. There were many times that I felt that I was going through the motions with no real understanding of why I was doing them. As I thought about my beliefs and what was important to me I turned to the scriptures, prayed and worked as hard as I could to learn God's will for me. As I did this he blessed me with a testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ and that this is His church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by working hard to follow Jesus Christ. I read the scriptures and pray, and I try to treat the people around me like He would.

What is the priesthood?

Jon
The priesthood is the authority to act in God's name. It is what God gives to his servants on earth so that they can perform his work such as healing the sick but also to direct his church. The priesthood is not gained by completing a degree orby simply claiming that one has it. The priesthood comes from God and can only be received from a person who also holds the priesthood.
