Hi I'm Jon

I love the outdoors. I am an avid skier. and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being outdoors, enjoying all of the Lord's work. My favorite spots have been in the San Rafael in mid-Utah. I also enjoy reading good books, playing great games, and hanging out with friends. I also love to sing!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this religion, but I always had trouble understanding it growing up, I learned as much as I could and try to do things by blind faith not knowing why. But as I grew older, I applied what I learned, by praying and serving and doing, and I saw and felt the joys that come out of it. And now I know why. I have a Father in heaven that loves me, He sent his Son to die for my sins, and when we do those things that are necessary, that Jesus Christ asked us to do, we can see such rich blessings and joy come out of it, and because of it I have a greater love for my Savior, and the knowledge contained in the Book of Mormon, and everything associated with it. I know now more than ever that the Lord communicates with us through Prophets. That the Book of Mormon was given to us by a benevolent and almighty God because He loves us. And that the prayers of our mind and soul are answered, if we open up our hearts to receive it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing just that, living it. One of the greatest joys I can have in a day is by serving those around me (best when done anonymously). When I see someone that needs help or that could use a shoulder to lean on, my heart goes out to them, and I want help them. Though sometimes they may not be open to helping hands, either by their pride or their need for self-reliance, that is why the unseen service is best! Right now I am serving as a missionary in Gowonda, New York.
