Hi I'm Jonathan Hayes

I am from Southern CA. I am a Missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a pretty goofy guy, I love my family, I love nature, everything from the mountains to the valleys and beaches. I love entertaining others, by making people laugh. I love watching movies a lot! I pretty much love just about everything that is not degrading. I am the youngest of six children 5 boys and 1 girl. My interests are my family, animals, movies, stories, nature, scriptures, history, archaeology, and traveling. I love to see the beauty in everyone and everything. I love to help and serve others, I hope to always leave a place better than I found it, and leave a positive lasting impression to those around me. I strive to always improve in all that I do and attempt. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and His Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I know there is a God and I love Him, so I study His word (scriptures) to know how He would have me live my life that I may have eternal joy and return to live with Him again. This is possible because His true church has been restored, and we can now apply His atoning sacrifice into our own lives. I know The priesthood power has been restored, I know the Lords guides us with prophets, because He is the same yesterday, today and forever, and He is preparing us all for His Second Coming. I am Mormon, because this church is not led my man, it is led by The Son of Man, it is His church. And I know He loves you and I.

How I live my faith

I love it I live my faith as best as I can by day to day expiriences and sharing the Gosple Principles of Jesus Christ. It always comes out that I am Mormon and all things testify of Christ, I just love to make those connections and help myself and others really see the big picture, the eternal perspective here., and appriciate the small and simple things. Because by small and simple means are great things brought about in our lives and the lives of others. I try to do all I can to keep the Holy Spririt of God in my life, and little by little align my will, with my Father in Heavens will. To me it is not worth it to not have the Holy Spirit with me. I make mistakes as everyone does, so I do all I can to try and not make it a habit or fall into similar mistakes again. Thank goodness for repentance! I feel that a repentant heart is a testifying heart. And I know that only through obediance to Gods commandments can we recieve blessing from Heaven. I believe that God always wants to bless us, but we need to accept those blessings, those gifts He has for us. I believe we must also share our gifts which God gives to us. I believe that we listen to God through study of the scriptures He has preserved for us, by the Spirit of Revalation. We speak to Him through prayer to The Father in the name of Jesus Christ. And we show our faith by acting upon our belief. We are children of a loving Father in Heaven having a mortal expirience. I love my Savior Jesus Christ, I want to be like Him.
