Hi I'm Jason

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 18 years. I have a wonderful wife and 5 great kids. I have 4 girls and one boy. I enjoy traveling, scuba diving, photography, computers, college football and golf. I am an endodontist, which is a dentist specializing in root canals. I like to listen to music while working on my patients and developed a reputation as a singing dentist. I love to come up with new ideas that I can use to build my practice and create new businesses ideas.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of what I have felt in my heart. What I think what makes Mormonism so different from traditional Christiantity is the idea of prophets and Priesthood. When Jesus established his church on the earth, he left it in care of his prophets and apostles. He gave them authority to act on his behalf and direct the church. I believe that God has called prophets in our time and has given them authority (Priesthood) to lead his church. Jesus Christ is the head of his church and directs it through a prophet on the earth. This authority can only come directly from God. I believe that God speaks to man, not only to prophets, but to everyone. I have felt him answer my prayers and have felt him show me things that are true. The Holy Spirit is the way that God speaks to us. I have felt that Spirit many times. It has taught me the truths that I believe.

How I live my faith

I try to serve my fellowman. I try to live in a way that reflects my faith in Jesus Christ. I serve in my local church in whatever way needed. I try to teach my children about Jesus Christ and help them to feel the whisperings of the Spirit in their lives. We take time each week to sit as a family and talk about the principles of the gospel. We read scriptures together and try and find ways to apply them in our lives. I like to make new friends. I like to help people.
