Hi I'm Jon

I grew up in Beaverton, Oregon, served a mission in Knoxville, Tennessee. I'm a avid runner and a dedicated learner.

About Me

I'm a young man that loves to live life to the fullest. Why go through life if you aren't going to try each day to do whats right and have fun doing it! I've served a mission for the Lord in Knoxville, Tennessee. I heard people say all of the time that when you serve a mission, you find who you are due to the power of the work. I feel that this saying is true because the work has changed who I am. I come from the Nike capital of the world, Beaverton Oregon . Making that culture change from the Oregon to the Southern United States has truely changed who I am. The relationship I have with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ has been tighter then I have ever felt it in my entire life. My testimony has been growing as I have been serving as a missionary. Back before I was a missionary I was just like any other young man. Through out High School I played sports such as baseball, water polo and racquetball. I also working a retail store in the local mall called Hollister. Something neat about me is that I used to be a part-time Model. I was a member of a local modelling agency for two years before I started to serve a mission. I have done small modelling work for Nike and small Portland companies like Duchess Clothier. I have really enjoyed being a model because I have been able to meet new people and have a lot of good experiences. I believe our pottential grows each day we have, so we need to take every opprotunity to learn and grow.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it true. Everyday on a mission we take two hours each morning to dedicate to studying the sciptures. This time for me has grown to be some of the most sacred time during the day because of the spirit it brings. I have learned more then I ever thought possible about the Gosple of Jesus Chirst. Though this knowledge and witnessing from the Holy Ghost, I have grown an unshakable testimony that this church is the one true church that has been established on the earth to prepare for the Savoir's second coming.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being myself everyday. Each day that goes by I try to do as a primary song says, "have I done any good in the world today?" Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ have set the perfect example for showing us how we can do good daily. Through they're example, I try to model my life after theirs. I believe that in order for me to be the best me, I just always be humble to Heavenly Father. I constantly trying find ways to improve myself by taking after the ultimate example of the Lord and Savior. Once humble, we can do as D&C 12:8-9 directs us to be, active in the work. This is why I am out on a mission.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Through out my life I have had momments where I felt so much joy that it filled my heart with great happiness and comfort. Thinking back on those momments, I was usually with my family or very close friends. Like anybody else I want to have those momments all of the time. That is why I have faith in our Heavenly Father's plan of happiness for us. I'm so excited to be able to live in Heaven where we are all surrounded by Heavely Father's love for us . The best part about Heavely Father's plan though is that it is for eternity. We can all be filled with His love and hapniess forever. This is why Mormon's and myself believe in "eternal life." We can live in endless happiness with our earthly families as well as our heavely families forever. Show more Show less
