Hi I'm Jonny Hanke

I grew up in Washington State and am getting ready to serve a full time mission this summer. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a high school senior, currenly attending a community college full time earning dual credits toward my degree and diploma. This summer I will be serving a full time, 2 year mission, and am extremely excited to go. My hobbies include: writing, running, hanging out with friends, rock climbing, and doing whatever i can to be in the outdoors. I work as a rock climbing instructor at a YMCA near me and get to work with kids and have fun each time I come into work.

Why I am a Mormon

I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the one and only true church here on the Earth today. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, called of God, to restore the church and the fullness of the gospel to the Earth. I know that Joseph Smith saw our savior Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father when he knelt down to pray to know the truth. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet, called of God, to lead the church in these, the latter days. I know that Jesus Christ, our savior, suffered and died for us, so that we might return to live with him and our Heavenly Father. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is another testament of Jesus Christ and what he did for us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every week. I read my scriptures daily and try to incorporate the lessons I learn into my daily life whenever I can. I live the standards and morals taught by my church and always strive to be the best that I can be.
