Hi I'm Jason Wilhite

I live in Arizona. I am a proud husband and father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Northern California. I have a very loving wife and a wonderful baby girl. I love being in the outdoors and playing sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior. That he suffered and died so that it would be possible for us to return to live with our Heavenly Father. Each of us have the opportunity to reach the goal of eternal happiness through trying to live as Christ did. As a father, it is a great blessing to know that that eternal happiness is not only on a personal level but includes our families. Families can be together forever. I can not imagine eternal happiness without them. I love the great blessings that being a Mormon has brought into my life.

How I live my faith

I love serving others. I strive to be a better father, husband and friend. By abiding by the teachings of our Savior, I truly feel like I am able to accomplish my goals.

Are Mormons Christians?

Jason Wilhite
My 7th grade teacher had a very strong belief that the Mormon religion was nothing but a giant cult. Coming from an area where there were not many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I felt strongly encouraged to help her out. Even though I knew that I would get a poor grade, I decided to do a presentation in class on Mormons being Christians. I figured that having the name of Jesus Christ in the name of the church would be proof enough for most people, I decided to go into more detail. Not only does the church teach of Christ, believe in Christ and have faith in Christ, but also teaches us about the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is testament of God's love to all of his children. The Book of Mormon goes hand in hand with the bible. The bible is a compilation of writings from prophets in the Middle East and the Book of Mormon is a compilation of writings from prophets in the Americas. In fact, one of my favorite stories in the Book of Mormon is when Christ came to the Americas and taught the people. What a great opportunity that we have to read even more of Christ's teachings. I know that Jesus lives. I know that he loves each and every one of us. I am proud to call myself a Mormon. I am proud to call myself a Christian. Show more Show less
