Hi I'm Jon

I'm a runner. I'm a brother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am one of seven children. I have one sister in college and one on a mission. I also have two sisters that are in high school with me. My youngest sister is in 5th grade, and my little brother is in 3rd grade. Right now, i'm just enjoying life as a sophomore in high school. I compete on the Cross Country and Track teams, and I enjoy watching and participating in sports. I'm also working on my Eagle Scout right now, and i hope to earn it sometime next year.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because i have a testimony of this church. I have spent a lot of time studying the scriptures, and praying to gain a testimony. I know that Jesus Christ is my saviour. I know that this church is true, because of the joy i feel from it every day of my life. I can promise you that if you do your best, to keep God's commandments, given through the scriptures, and the prophets, you will taste of this joy as well. I am also a Mormon, because i want to raise a family that has this joy too. I know that if i stay worthy, i will be able to marry in the Lord's temple, and have a family that lasts forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to live the things i am taught. I go to a school of roughly 2,000 students. Out of those, i am the only boy that is a member of the church. This means that everything i do or don't do, people will set as what they think about Mormons. This can be stressful at times, but i hope i am doing a good job. I do not swear. I don't do drugs or smoke. I obey the law of Chastity. I try to have charity for all men. I also try to avoid getting angry at people that say rude things about me or my beliefs. I am preparing to serve a mission for my church. Ultimately, i hope to marry for time and all eternity in the temple.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

For the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, a temple is different from a church building. It is the house of God, and in it we can feel His spirit. In order to go to the temple, one must be a member of the church, and be keeping all the commandments of God. It is here that we can be married for time and all eternity. Show more Show less
