Hi I'm Jason C. Gardner

I'm an older brother to 4 younger brothers, I am a volleyball player, I love history, and I,m a Mormon

About Me

I am an ordinary teenager. I love to hang out with my friends and play sports. I am a volleyball player at my high school. I love to go camping and hiking. I am part of scouting and I have received my eagle scout. I have recently have began a hobby to write down my thoughts and write short stories. I have an extensive imagination but people can't tell by looking at me. I love to play with my brothers and my cousins wether it be playing tag to playing video games I love to be with my cousins. I love to watch history channel, discovery, and national geographic. I love to study world history and and current events.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the and I have had to build my own testimony. I started to build my testimony when I started seminary my freshman year. Sadly I didn't put much effort my first year but the next three years have been the most fun and uplifting classes I have been able to take. My testimony grew four sizes in those years and it is continuing to grow. Despite the trials that I face I run and meet them with confidence and certainty. People think that because I was born into the church that I am better off than a convert. Well that is not true it is just as hard for a child born into a lds family than a convert. What separates them is there willingness to accept the gospel and gain their own testimony for themselves.

How I live my faith

I show my faith in the service I give. I learned from my mom at an early age that I must always serve my community. Every year I give countless hours of service. I finished my eagle project early in the year of 2011 and by the time I was done all of the volunteers and in had over 175 hours of community service. On top of that I helped 4 other scout get their eagles. But besides scouting I am part of our stakes youth committee and we as a committee come up with a day long activity for the youth. I helped plan the activity last year and I have the privileged to plan it again.
