Hi I'm Jack

I was born and raised on military bases in Japan, but I`m 100% percent American. I`m a Mormon.

About Me

I`m just your average, ordinary, every day superhero. I love sports, music, ICEEs, and who doesn`t love a good movie night. Growing up on a military base overseas definitely shaped my outlook on the world, and I am infinitely grateful for that experience. As different as we all seem, people really aren`t that different deep down; it really is a small world after all. I have recently taken a break from college to serve as an LDS missionary in the country I call home to serve the people that I love, and it is the most humbling, exhilirating, gratifying thing that I have ever done.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up isn`t easy for anyone, but one light that I always had to guide me were the examples of a few very strong believers. At a time when I had lost my way, the faith and hope in Christ that I saw in the eyes of a confident and courageous friend lifted me up off of my knees. From their example I wanted that hope and courage within myself, so I turned to the Lord, and he has continued to lift me up be more than I thought I could be. I know my Savior lives. He has a plan, and it`s a whole lot better than anything I have come up with. I have felt His love for me, and to share His love with others is about the greatest feeling ever.

How I live my faith

I have always tried to give back to the community all that I can, because the people where I grew up were such excellent examples. When the Sendai Earthquake hit Japan in 2011, I was there shoveling muck cleaning wreckage alongside the men and women of the United States military. There is always someone in need, and some way that we can lend a helping hand. Right now I am serving an LDS mission in Nagoya, Japan. My purpose is to bring the hope and joy that this gospel has brought to my life to all those who will listen to my message. In doing my best to represent my Savior Jesus Christ I volunteer and serve at every oppurtunity I can find, and in blessing others I have come off even more blessed than I could have possibly imagined.
