Hi I'm Jason

I'm a husband, a father of five, an engineer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. I've been married for 14 years and I have 5 children. I love spending time with my family. We enjoy picnics in the mountains, jumping on the trampoline, going to parks, and playing video games together. I'm interested in business and I'm an entrepreneur by heart. My professional background is in software engineering and I currently develop Apps for the iPhone and the iPad.

Why I am a Mormon

I finished reading the Book of Mormon for the first time when I was 14 years old. I still remember kneeling down by my bed and asking God if it was true. The warmth and peace that filled my heart was unmistakable. It's now been over 20 years since I received that witness. Not only do I continue to feel that same peace each time I read from its pages, but it's teachings have helped me to grow closer to my Savior Jesus Christ. The strength and the happiness that I've found by actively applying its teachings in my life cannot be measured. I know without a doubt that the Book of Mormon is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith at home as a father and a husband. We believe that the family is ordained of God and that no other success can compensate for failure in the home. As a result, I do my best to give my children personal time each day. My wife and I also read the scriptures with our children every day and look for opportunities to help them learn the difference between right and wrong. We also attend church with them each Sunday. Since the strength of our home depends upon the strength of our marriage, I make an effort to take my wife out on a date each week (which I very much enjoy). I also live my faith by researching my family history. We believe that God is just and that those who died without an opportunity to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, and be baptized in this life, will have an opportunity to hear it in the next life. If they choose to accept it there, and a baptism has been performed for them in this world, then they will still be able to enter into the Kingdom of God. This is why we research our family history, so we can find the names of our ancestors and be baptized for them in the Holy Temple.
