Hi I'm John Jensen

I'm a computer programmer, a husband and father, a soccer player and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of a girl and 5 boys. I am a computer programmer and love to play sports like soccer, golf, volleyball and anything competitive. I am a college graduate in Engineering. I played soccer at a high level and have coached my oldest son for 10 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was not raised in any religion, but when I was in my later 20's I began to ask myself, "What are you going to do about Jesus Christ?". I read in the Book of Mormon about how to pray in the name of Christ about righteous things and my prayers would be answered, so that is what I did. I prayed about whether the Church was right or wrong and if I should join, closed the prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, and then followed up my prayer with a pleading to God that is not be right. I didn't want to be a Mormon. The next morning it was powerfully manifest to me that the Church was right and I new I must join. I joined and have not looked back and have grown in the Gospel since that time in 1994. In this world today, I can't imagine my children growing up without the armor and tools they have been given being members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Until you can understand the difference between joy and fun you may not ever belong to His church. I have never regretted making a decision that falls in line with the teachings of this church and do regret many decision I have made that do not. This is truly the right place to be, the right thing to do and the right way to live.

How I live my faith

I love living in this church. We all serve each other and help carry each others burdens. We take upon ourselves the name of Christ and live the way he taught us. My family attends church every week and my boys are called to serve in positions in the church and gain valuable leadership skills. My son and I visit neighbors we are assigned to and try to lift them up
