Hi I'm Jason Mosis

I am a born and raised Texan. I am a husband, father, former Marine, MBA graduate, and artist. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I married my highschool sweetheart. We have 3 awesome children. I spent four years in the Marine Corps. Since then I have gotten my undergraguate degree in MIS and my MBA following that. I have worked a lot of different part time jobs doing everything from tree removal and mobile home repair to slinging books at Barnes & Noble. I've worked full time as a Safety Supervisor, HR manager and Project Manager in the turnaround industry. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Art. I love to draw, paint and photograph. I love spending time with my family and friends; especially playing games and watching movies. I do not like watching sports. I love-love-love rockabilly music. So much so I actually learned how to swing dance so my wife and I could have more fun going to shows. We have taught swing dance for several - maybe many - years now and are children are even asking us to teach them and their friends. I think Texas is the greatest state in the union and place in the world. BBQ, Tex-Mex and Blue Bell ice cream - enough said. I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was skeptical of religion but followed an inspired challenge of a righteous missionary to read the Book of Mormon and pray about being promised that the Holy Ghost would deliver an answer if it was true. I did, the Holy Ghost did, and here I am - hopelessly convereted, devoted and happy.

Why I am a Mormon

As I wrote earlier I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I grew up in the Church of Christ and learned a lot there. Mormon missionaries visited and taught their discussions to me for years - about nine years off and on pretty steadily. The problem was I never really took the search for truth very seriously. But then something changed and I wondered about the time I was wasting not really looking for the truth. Ask and ye shall receive, right? Wondering which church I should look into first I was quickly confronted by a Moromon missionary, one I had spoken to many times before. This time though things went very differently. He delivered to me an inspired challenge. He said if I would read the Book of Mormon in one week, cover to cover,and pray about it I would be given an answer of whether it is true or not. I thought that this sounded like a great deal - one week to see if one church was true. So I read the Book of Mormon in one week, staying up all night the last night to meet the challenge. I found this Book to be good; its fruit to be good and not contrary to the Holy Bible but a companion to it. I did get an answer but before that answer I was inspired with the discernment of other things, other issues and problems in my life. These revelations helped guide me and prepare me because at the end of the week I did not get my promised answer right away. Instead I received impressions that while I would receive an answer it would follow some more work and prayer. I put the guidance of the church to the test to see if they improved my life and inspired further revelation. One Sunday, weeks later, having tested tithing, the Word of Wisdom, meeting attendance and fasting, out of no where the Spirit crashed into me like a wave. I have a testimony this Church is true. I have a testimony that Joseph Smith was a true prophet as is our living prophet today, Thomas S. Monson. This knowledge guides me, comforts me and emboldens me every day.

How I live my faith

The Lord asks much of us but blesses us exponetially more. Part of how I answer His call is fulfilling assignments of teaching and service. I visit families in our ward (local church units) to see how they are doing, what help they might stand in need of and offer uplifting spiritual messages. I have taught lessons for various Sunday school classes. Currently I am tasked with coordinating the missionary efforts of our ward. I meet with the full time missionaries, ward missionaries and other members to discuss on going work and opportunities. We have a really awesome team right now and the field is white and ready to harvest. My most crucial calling though is that of a father. My wife and I work hard to instill our values in our children. We study the scriptures together, pray together, work alongside one another, play together and stand in holy places avoiding evil and the appearance of such.
