Hi I'm Jonathan Hyde

I grew up in Washigton D.C. I'm serving as a missionary in Northern California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Washinton D.C. and grew up in the D.C. area. I love to play sports, esepcially basketball and football, and I love going to games too. I have a youger brother and a younger sister, and growing up we were always out on the basketball court playing each other. My family is great, and we always did a lot of things together. I studied for a year at Brigham Young University before my mission, and hope to be a doctor someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon household with good parents who taught me well. But like any teenager, at some point I had to make a decision and find out for myself if what my parents taught me was true. Through a lot of trying situations in my life I reached a point in my life where I realized that I needed help. I turned to my Heavenly Father through prayer, and he sent some people into my life that helped me to put my life on the right track. After reading in the Book of Mormon, I prayed and asked God if it was true. I recieved an answer, and I know that it is true. Because I know that, I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet, and that he restored God's true church on the Earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying every day to be like my Savior Jesus Christ. I always try to do my best to follow his example, and to keep his commandments. What I am doing right now is that I am serving as a missionary in Northern California, and sharing the message of the restored gospel with people I meet.
