Hi I'm Jesse

I'm from Orem Utah, I'm a son, a brother, an uncle, a friend, and a golfer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jesse, I was born and raised in Utah. I am the youngest in my family. I love my family very much, they mean everything to me. I wouldn't be who I am today if it wasn't for them. I love spending time with them and also my friends. I'm a golfer, i've played almost all of the sports but golf is by far my favorite. My dad started teaching me when I was a few years old and I fell in love with the game from the get go. I played in golf tournaments for the past several years and on my high school golf team. I love to play golf because its relaxing, fun, and hard all at the same time. I also love watching movies, being outside, and going on vacation to Disneyland.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know without a doubt that this is truly the Church of Jesus Christ. I grew up going to church every Sunday with my family, participating in all the classes and activities, but I still had to find out for myself if the Church was true. The Book of Mormon has a promise; If you read it, ponder the message it contains, then ask God if its true, He will answer your prayer by the power of the Holy Ghost. Its very simple. I asked my Heavenly Father through prayer if the Book of Mormon was true and I immediately felt the warmest, most comforting feeling that it was. There is no possible way it couldn't be true. The happiness that comes from living the way God wants you to live is indescribable. I know that Heavenly Father loves each and every one of us. I know Jesus Christ died for us all and He lives today. I know this because the Holy Ghost testified it to me. I have felt and experienced the cleansing power of the Atonement which Christ suffered for us. I know Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God. What I love the most is the fact that I can be together with my family for all eternity in Heaven. All of this is possible because we have a loving Heavenly Father and Savior. That is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone possible. I have received so much happiness and blessings from being apart of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I want everyone else to have the same happiness I do. The happiness comes by praying everyday, studying the scriptures everyday, going to church every week, and striving to be like my Savior Jesus Christ.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It is a record of Gods children and the Prophets he called in the ancient American continents. The Prophets were called of God and they testified of Jesus Christ. God wants all of His children to know of the Savior Jesus Christ, and the wonderful plan that He has created for us. The climax of the Book of Mormon is when Jesus Christ Himself appeared to the people in the Americas after His Resurrection. By reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible together you will gain a better understanding of our Father in Heaven and our Savior Jesus Christ. You can come to know it is true by reading and praying about it. I have done it, and God has answered my prayer by the power of the Holy Ghost and I know He will do the same for you.
