Hi I'm Jackson Ogles

I'm a student, a runner, basketballer, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a fanatic when it comes to physical activity and having fun. I love every sport, especially basketball and competitive running. I am a student, and forever will be because I love to learn. I love my family, they mean a lot to me. Also making friends and being a good friend.In the future I want to become an orthodontist. We'll see what happens eh?! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I have experimented with the doctrine of Mormonism, and I have found it to be true and a VERY satisfactory way of living. I experience joy and peace from it. And especially comfort during hard times. It is all possible through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I love God.

How I live my faith

I served a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Melbourne, Australia. I lived in many different areas including Tasmania, Victoria, and New-South Wales. I spent most of my time serving others in any shape or fashion that I could! Whether that is mowing lawns, teaching English, or my all time favourite service, was sharing my conviction of the truthfulness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ with people. That's what makes me happy! :) I study the word of God, both ancient and Modern daily. And very important to me is praying to my Father in Heaven daily for personal inspiration, comfort and protection. I know this is all possible through Jesus Christ. I also love to attend the temple and worship God in His holy house. But my main thing is simply serving my fellow friends and even people I don't know! :)
