Hi I'm Jonathan

I love baking, Christmas, and Star Wars. I've been called to the Texas, Houston South Mission. I'm from California! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to bake and cook, espcially for my friends! My favorite breakfast food is banana pancakes! I love when I get to give my help to others and make there days better, just helping friends with chores or making them feel better with compliments or thanks. I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Touched by an Angel, to name just three. I once had an entire Harry Potter movie marathon with my sister, which lasted for about 21 hours with almost no breaks (besides dinner). I love my friends to death! I have my Associate Degree in Communication. I love God, and I am constantly surprised at and grateful for His many blessings, especially considering he has billions of children. I enjoy having good, clean fun, (and good food), and I like to live life, laugh, and do spontaneous, funny things all the time. Find me on Instagram at jedisimp44.

Why I am a Mormon

I was, in fact, born and raised going to church. I'm a Mormon because I want to become better than I am and I want to give back to God in some small measure, through following Him and doing all he has asked. I guess I always "believed" it was true, and felt very knowledgeable about the gospel-- but now I have both the knowledge about the gospel and I have felt the Spirit witness to me of its truth. I am a Mormon by choice, and I love it so much! The spirit of community in my congregation back home is spectacular, and I've grown to love so many people through my many associations in the Church!

How I live my faith

I help in organizing and participating in activities for other youth my age in the church. I am in the Boy Scouts program and I am very outspoken in my community. I try to be a good example to my friends, and I am a diligent member of the church.
