Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm a Texan - got there as fast as I could - but I'm from California. I find white-collar criminals. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a proud father of 3 - one son and two daughters. My son has autism and I pride myself in working with my wife to raise my son to help him reach his potential, however high that may be. I enjoy playing sports (specifically football, basketball, tennis, & volleyball). I follow college football, college basketball, and the NBA. Brigham Young University is my alma mater, so I try to be in the know on their sports. I enjoy reading playing with my children, reading contemporary novels, singing, or playing an occasional sports video game.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in high school, my friend gave me The Book of Mormon and asked me to read it. I read it intently and began praying to God to know if it was the word of God. After some deep study and prayer, God let me know both in my mind and in my heart that it is the word of God. Since then he has revealed many things to me through study and prayer that I wouldn't have come to know otherwise. I know that in companionship with the Bible, we have scriptures that can help us understand more about Jesus Christ. If we follow Jesus' example, we can find happiness in this life and in an eternal life to come.

How I live my faith

I was a clerk for my church for 2 years. I kept the membership and financial records of our congregation. So, whether it was church members moving in or moving out, or helping to manage and safeguard the charitable donations of the members, I tried to do my part. Now I am the executive secretary for our congregation. I try to make our bishop's life and workload easier. I help manage the bishop's appointments and schedule. Mainly I just try to help by serving any member in our church in any capacity that they may need help.
