Hi I'm Rusty Jones

Life is great. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family is amazing. I love being with them and they helped me become who i am. I love the outdoors. I love hiking, camping, skiing, and basically anything outside. I have done Track and Field for seven years so far and it is a huge part of my life. I started college and am studying physics. Currently, I'm serving a mission in the Boston Massachusetts Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is true. It's as simple as that! The gospel has blessed my life so much. The world is full of so many traps. Satan makes sin appear enticing and he blinds us to the consequences. This gospel has been an anchor in my life that has helped me avoid those pitfalls. My life is free from the many trials that come through sin because I have tried to follow Jesus Christ and obey God's commandments, and it is ONLY through the Savior's Atonement that I have been forgiven and have received the feelings of peace and joy that are found in the gospel. I know families can be together forever because I am a Mormon. My heavenly Father has blessed me so much!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to do what I know to be right. I think it all comes down to love. I try to be kind to others and in some small way give back. My Heavenly Father has blessed me so much and the least I can do is love those around me. I can show my love for my Heavenly Father by not only doing what He wants me to do, but by being who He wants me to be.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Rusty Jones
Truth from God is simple and beautiful. The way to discover it is simple as well. All God wants us to do is ask. He has all of the answers. When we ask with a sincere heart and with real intent we will feel of the truthfulness of this church through the power of the Holy Ghost. I know this process works. It has worked for me in my life. This church is true!! Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Rusty Jones
God is our heavenly father. That makes us all his sons and daughters. God's whole plan for us and the purpose of this life is to return to live with him again. God, because he loves us, has made it possible for us to be reunited with our own families after this life. The best time in my life have been with my family. This can be an eternal reality through the gospel of Jesus Christ! Husbands and wives can be together with their children for eternity because of the atonement of Jesus Christ and through the blessings of the temple. I love my Heavenly Father and am grateful for eternal families! Show more Show less
