Hi I'm Jon Mangum

I'm s typical boy from Idaho Falls, I love the outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just a simple Idaho boy called to serve in lubbock, Texas (I leave March 13). I love to go hunting, fishing, camping, pretty much anything that is outside I'm all over it. I grew up with some of the best friends a guy could ever ask for.I may not have been the best example to them, but I wish they were still here so i could tell them how much they influenced my life. I'm an easy guy to get along with, every oppurtunity i have I'm always trying to make people laugh, which has gotten me into trouble a time or two, but if i gave someone a chuckle it's always been worth it to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Morman because I know hands down that this is the only true church, with all of the proper authority given to man from god. this didnt hit me in one night, but rather through the span of many years. Don't waste your time trying to find out if it is or not or trying to find other religions, but instead find this one and learn more about it and pray about it, only then will you find the truth and be that much closer to our beloved heavenly father.

How I live my faith

From the beginning of my life all I've known is the gospel so naturally i took everything for granted. I would go to church, probably fall asleep or just sit there in agony waiting for it to be over so i could go home and eat. After I reached my tenth birthday my family kindof stopped going to church. Not necessarily stopped more like we wouldn't attend as much as we should; we would go sometimes. After a few years of doing this, our ward got a brand new bishop. This guy was probably the best thing that could ever happen to me, he would always send me a text to wake up and come to church or come to my house and wake me up, overall he pushed me to reach my full potential. It didnt hit me all at once, but eventually I realized that you can either live in the gospel or you can live out of the gospel, because if you try to halfway it the entire time you'll end up not living the way that heavenly father does not want us to live, and I have first hand account of this, I thought that if i gave it half then i would still be able to be in the clear, unfortunately it took me a long time to realize that that is absolutely false.
