Hi I'm Jon

I grew up in Riverton, UT. I life weights and am serving a full-time mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I'm currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am serving in the California Arcadia mission. Anything that has to do with health and fitness, I'm all over. I love learning and I'm pretty set on being a chiropractor in the future. I come from a family of 3 brothers. We're a pretty close knit family and have a lot of fun together. We were really brought to together with the passing of my father in 2007. However, because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ which has been restored to the earth, our family has been able to find a lot of peace in knowing God's Plan of Salvation for us.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in a family of Mormons. Both my parents had a strong testimony of the Gospel and both my brothers served full-time missions. I'm not a Mormon because my family is Mormon, though. I know for myself that this gospel is the true and restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ in the sacred grove of trees in Palmyra. He translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and have prayed about it and recieved an answer from God about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I also have a testimony of the mercy and grace of Christ in the Atonement (when Christ suffered for our sins). Through the Atonement, we can become cleansed of sin and become whole. We can become clean and be worthy to live with God. The Atonement is the most important part of this gospel to me and this is what I will be sharing on my mission. I have a testimony that families are forever. That is one of the things that gives me the most joy about this gospel. I will be able to be with my father once again. I share that message of eternal families forever because it brings me so much joy and I want to share it with all of those who are willing to listen. I know this gospel is true and I know it will bring happiness to all who partake of the fruits of the Gospel. Christ wants you back and His Gospel is the true and only way to return to live with Christ. I invite all who read this to learn of Christ and come unto Him and be healed through the Atonement of Christ and be saved and find happiness in this life and for eternity.

How I live my faith

I'm a missionary right now. I live my faith through sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those who are searching for the truth. I live my faith through striving to be an example of Christ. I also strive to live my life in a way that would make my father proud. I live my life knowing that through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and everything he has done for me will allow me to have eternal life with Him and my family.
