Hi I'm J.J.

I'm Student Body President and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the Student Body President at my school. I love music and singing I've been in choir for 6 years. My parent are devorced and I live with my Grandparents. I love scouting infact just got my Eagle Scout award in June of 2012. Theres not really much to me, I enjoy playing video games, singing, and scouting. And I love taking on leadership positions.

Why I am a Mormon

I was first introduced to the church in elementery school when my nieghbor could never come out to play on Sunday or Monday nights because of Family Home Evening. I would always ask why and they invited me to church and started going with them for a while untill she move :( After that I quite going for a long time. Then I moved in with my Grandparents when I turned 13 and they tried so hard to get me to go to church and i would refuse. One day I was working with my Grandpa i broke my ankle, and while i was in the hospital bed the docter just told me that i was going to have to have surgery and that i'll probly never be able to walk on it the same. My Grandma talked me into having a blessing and in that blessing i remember the Bishop saying my ankle would be better then before and that i would start coming to church and do big things. Not realizing this blessing was coming true, I started coming to church and my ankle was even better then it was before i broke it. After being called to Teachers Quarum President i realized thhat there is something different in the church. I was scared at first being President because i didnt know much about the church but after a while i found to be easy because i knew Heavenly Father was there helping me along the way. I love my Heavenly Father and im greatful for all that he does for me. The breaking my ankle experiance was just a small story of how the Holy Ghost testified to me that this church is true and i would trade it for anything. God can will help you if you turn to him and allow him to.

How I live my faith

I'm very involved in my ward, I volunteer almost every week to take the sacrament to those who cant make it to church because of personal issues. I wasnt very active for many years and I'll talk about that later but when i started coming again I was in teachers quarum and litteraly a few months later i was called to be Teachers Quarum President. I held that calling for a year and a half and was released when I moved to Priest Quarum. Then after going to Priest quarum i was called to be the second assistand to the Bishop in Priest. I held that close to two years. I attend Seminary everyday nd go to church every Sunday. And I learned to love serving others
