Hi I'm Jesse Saltzgiver

I love spending time with my family and friends, and just having fun. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was raised in Bountiful, UT, and I enjoy spending time with my family, going on vacation, and just having a good time! Currently, I am serving as a full time missionary for the church in the Pennslyvania, Philadelphia mission. I enjoy serving others and helping out whenever possible. I have one sibling, and two goodly parents who love the gospel of Jesus Christ. I also love the gospel of Jesus Christ. No matter what experience has played out in my life, I know that God has been guiding my footsteps, and leading me to become the person He wants me to be.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family, and was baptized at eight years old. I had tried to keep close to God and be the best I could be by keeping His commandments, but I didnt feel TRULY converted until I had matured to about the age of about seventeen. I decided that I wanted to really study the Book of Mormon. I finished it and decided to re-read it. As I was nearing the end of the Book, I saw how my behavior had transformed to what God expects of me. It was as if a change had taken place in my heart. I decided to trust the Prophet Moroni's challenge in the Book of Mormon to pray to know if the Mormon faith was true. I felt true inspiration that I am certain it had to have come from Heaven. I knew that I was following the path Heavenly Father had set for me and I had a desire to become a true disciple of Jesus Christ. I want to follow the counsel of the living prophet and do as Jesus Christ directs me through the promptings of the Holy Ghost. That's how I can find true happiness!

How I live my faith

I try to live the faith and be true to what I have promised God by living the standards of the church. I have a calling to teach others in their homes, and I love it. It helps me overcome selfishness, and humble myself before the Lord. I try to be an example to my younger sibling and teach her how to deal with challenges by going to the Lord for help first. I also try to do the very best I can in my neighborhood by mowing lawns, and keeping in touch with them. I try to help out whenever possible and be a good influence to those I meet.
