Hi I'm Jay Z.

I'm a nursing home administrator. I'm a sports lover. I'm a news junkie and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Throughout my life I have always looked for opportunities to compete. For that reason, I love sports, business, politics and fantasy football. I also get a lot of enjoyment out of serving my fellow man in and outside of the LDS Church. I hope that as I go through my life I can have a positive influence on those with whom I come in contact and consistently live a Christ-centered life.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe the original church that Christ established in New Testament times has been restored to its original form through a modern-day prophet and the authority given to that prophet by God. In the process of restoring the original church of Christ, this modern-day prophet, Joseph Smith, translated The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I have read that book many times and through personal experiences know it to be from God. Many have challenged my convictions, but I can't deny the peaceful, calming influence of the fundamental principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I not only believe that abiding by the precepts of the LDS church have blessed my life so far, but I firmly believe that if I continue to follow its core principles I will continue to be blessed later in this life and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is more than just Sunday worship. It involves sacrifice in many areas of ones life. I spend many hours every month planning and going to Church activities and service projects designed for both Mormons and non-Mormons alike. Another integral part of our church is that every member gets visited by another member at least once per month. So, I have a group of nine people that me and my friend visit every month. Apart from church-related functions, I love to go out on weekends to concerts, sporting events, and even take a girl out every so often.

Are Mormons Christians?

Jay Z.
Absolutely. I can speak for myself that I firmly believe in Jesus Christ. The same Jesus Christ that all other Christians follow. I believe the New Testament to be inspired scripture. Though all Christians fall short, we strive to follow His example. Show more Show less
