Hi I'm Jason

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have been married for nearly 10 years after meeting in university. During our time together, we have welcomed four sons into our family, now between the ages of 8 and 2. I took a teaching job in the northern part of our province after graduating from university. After four years in Slave Lake, I had the chance to begin teaching in my hometown and am now happily working for my second year in Medicine Hat. We enjoy travelling together, camping, having movie night, playing card and board games, and spending time with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the church, largely relying on my own parents to provide the guidance that I needed. However, I realized in my teenage years that I needed to find out for myself if this church was right for me. There was no magic solution... all I needed to do was read the Book of Mormon. I found that as I did so, I felt peace in my heart and mind. When I finally reached the end of the book and came upon Moroni's challenge (Moroni 10:3-5), I knew that I needed to give it a try. Praying to my Father in Heaven and asking Him was one of the best things I have ever done because it gave me the direction that I needed to make the major decisions in my life. Serving as a missionary in California helped to further strengthen that desire to keep the commandments. As a father, I try my best to teach my own children the importance of seeking inspiration from God because I have to come to know for myself that He answers prayers because He loves us.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as the Ward Mission Leader, which gives me the opportunity to work closely with missionaries and those who are not of our faith. It has been very rewarding to devote more of my life to helping other people like me who have similar challenges and concerns. When people come and ask me for help, and as I serve with other leaders in our ward, my own testimony grows. I love being able to work with everyone in our ward from the young children, to youth in their teen years, to adults and families. It helps me to understand that we are all in this together because we are all children of God.
