Hi I'm Jackson

I'm a spanish missionary in Indiana, I'm from Logan Utah, I love music, sports, and fun, and i'm a mormom!

About Me

I'm just a regular joe. I grew up in a family with four kids and i'm the third. I graduated from Logan high school. I played Football, basketball, and Lacrosse for the high school team. I love kickin' it with friends and chattin' with them about life. I'm currently in Indiana sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a missionary. It is the biggest blessing in my life. I love all of the people i've met here. I'm gratefuled that i was able to help some of my brothers and sisters come unto our Savior. I am called to speak spanish so i have learned to love the hispanic culture. Especially the food.... mmmm mmmm good! I love life!!

Why I am a Mormon

Good question..... I'm a Mormon because this is the only true church and i know that by the power of the Holy Ghost. I have come to know that this is the only way to truly follow my Savior Jesus Christ. What i love about this is that i found out for myself. I read the Book of Mormon with an open heart and real intent. I prayed to know and the Holy Ghost answered me. I know that whoever does the same WILL know for themselves that this is true as well. That knowledge carries me to do what it right. It helps me to change my ways. The more i study the more i realize i need to change to become even more like the Savior. I continue on this path because i have come to understand my eternal potential. God wants me to have all that He has. How great is that!

How I live my faith

Like i have stated i am currently a missionary in Indiana right now. I have dedicated two years to serve people and teach them about our Savior Jesus Christ and how He loves us. I go and knock doors, i talk to people on the streets, or whatever else the Lord would have me do to find those prepared to hear and accept the gospel. We travel two by two so i live 24/7 with someone just like me who also has dedicated two years to preach the gospel. Once we find someone who is ready to have a better life and is willing to find out if the things that we teach are true, then we begin to teach them. We help them make changes to come in better harmony with the Lord's teachings and in turn receive the blessings. I see people change their lives and then see a new light come into their eyes. I love what i do. There has been no other time in my life that was so hard yet i am so happy! I love it!

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Jackson
My purpose on earth is to prove myself. To prove to my Heavenly Father that i love Him and that i will be obedient to His commandments, which in turn helps me become more like Him. I love that knowledge. It brings purpose to every day. It brings a challenge that i am constantly working on. I'm here to become more like my Heavenly Father and that is something that i will not fully accomplish in this life. That helps me know that i'm never done getting better and working harder. That i gotta keep pushing myself. That knowledge gives me purpose day after day. It also helps me understand that this life isn't going to be easy. I know i need to have hard time or else i can't grow. I know that because my life is hard and that i have to do difficult things that God loves me. God loves me enough to put me through a life that helps me learn what i need to learn and become who i need to become. Show more Show less
