Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm a Cali boy, but now reside in the AZ. I'm a budding entrepreneur. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up I played competitive golf. I had to make the decision to serve a mission or pursue a scholarship. I chose the mission and it has been one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life thus far. I always enjoy learning whether it be how to build my business or any way to improve myself. I also enjoy learning from the people who are closet to me and from the new people I meet on a daily basis. I currently own a couple of small businesses located in the Phoenix, AZ area. I also enjoy bowling, tennis, disc golf, racquetball, and any other active competitive sport.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church growing up. I can remember there were times that going to church was more of a chore rather than something I looked forward to. I now know that the reason I felt that way is because I didn't take the time and effort to gain a testimony because my membership in this Church was just handed to me. It wasn't really until I served as a missionary that I truly had a steadfast testimony of the Restoration. Having the privilege to serve Heavenly Fathers' children in His service, I really was able to know for a surety that this Church was/is the only true church on the Earth with the proper authority. Also while serving as a missionary I was able to experience the power in having a living Prophet and Apostles on the earth by listening to an entire General Conference Broadcast. Listening to them speak twice a year is such a blessing especially during these times when we're often tested and need the right guidance to keep us on the right path.

How I live my faith

I currently have the pleasure of serving as the Sunday School President in my ward. I been so blessed to have a calling which allows me to meet with so many teachers and members in the ward. The teachers of our Sunday School teach such wonderful and well prepared lessons that are guided by the Spirited and it definitely helps myself and others to have the spiritual recharge needed for the week ahead. I enjoy home teaching so much. I have a very strong testimony in that service opportunity. There's really not a better way to get to know somebody than to have a one on one with them that might not have otherwise had if you weren't given the assignment. I attend Institute on a weekly basis as it's a great way for me to have a mid week boost before Sunday come around again. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a desire to learn more about the Gospel and to increase their Faith and Testimony in our Savior. I appreciate so much the vast amount of resources that the Church offers to everyone.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

For me it's simple: The beauty of the Earth, love, and my family are the ways I know that there is a loving Heavenly Father that is mindful of every one of His children. Show more Show less
