Hi I'm Jace

I grew up all over Arizona I love to play sports, hunt, I'm a missionary in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently serving a Mission in the great land of Minnesota USA. I love the gospel and have a deep desire to share it with the people that I meet. I have felt God's love so much for me and I want to share it with other people. I grew up all over the state of Arizona and love it there! Also, I am the second oldest of six kids. I love my family very deeply and am thankful for them being in my life to help me learn and grow!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but I came to know it was true for myself from a very personal experience that happened at EFY when I was 15. I felt the spirit so strong that it brought me to tears I had been praying all week long to know that the Book of Mormon and the church was true for myself because until then I had relied on the testimony of my parents and I wanted to know for myself. And when I had the feeling of that spirit fill my my body I knew the church was true for myself. I since that time have made mistakes and gone down wrong roads. When I made these mistakes, I felt very unhappy and depressed, but as I applied the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ I became happy again. I have felt the redeeming and enabling power of Christ's Atonement in my life. A power I would have never known if I was not a member of this church!

How I live my faith

I live my faith as best as I can. I try to show Christ like love to all those around me. I have come to know for myself that this gospel and church is true and that it will improve anyone's life. That is why I became a missionary I want others to feel the joy that comes with having the fullness of the gospel on the earth one more! When I am done with my missionary service I will try to show that same Christ like love to everyone around me and try to make their day better and let them know that God loves them and knows what they are going through.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

We believe in the bible. We believe it has the important teachings of Christ and the prophets of old and we follow the teaching. we also have the Book of Mormon which was translated by Joseph Smith in these latter day. We believe this to be another testament of Jesus Christ and how his prophets taught in the Americas, but also the account of when he came after he was resurrected and taught the people of the Americas himself.
