Hi I'm Jonny

I'm a gym-goer, I love to push myself, I love sports, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 21 years old and the youngest of four. I love music, swimming, and pushing my body beyond its limit. I am currently a missionary in the Northwest of England (the England Manchester Mission) and I am loving it! I When I return home my desire is to become a Police Officer and later on possibly teach.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the things I have experienced in my life which have turned me to God. I came to know this Church is true, not by having a vision, but by seeing how the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ help families come closer together, and help individuals overcome trials and challenges that come from this life and the world we live in today. I know everything we go through is necessary for us to learn and grow to become the person Heavenly Father wants us to become.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be the person God wants me to become. I take challenges and trials head on and try to find a way I can learn from them and in turn reach out to others. It has been difficult for me growing up in the world today with friends who have different values and standards than myself, however standing firm to my beliefs has helped me come closer to Heavenly Father and has helped my friends gain a greater understanding of the things I believe. Right now I am currently serving as a missionary in the Northwest of England inviting others to come unto Christ. Helping people see there is a reason behind trials and bringing them closer to their Saviour has brought me such great happiness!

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Jonny
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is made up of His suffereing in the Garden of Gethsemane, His death on the cross, and his Ressurection. We are imperfect people, we make mistakes, and sin, because of this we cannot be in the presence of God. Jesus Christ, Heavenly Father's only Begotten Son came to earth, gained a body, and experienced everything every single person has, is and will ever go through. He suffered for our sins and afflictions, how? I do not know, but I know He did as I have felt His help in my life. I have used the Atonement, I have faith, was baptised, received the gift of the Holy Ghost, and am doing my best to keep His commandments. This is how we fully benefit from the Atonement of Christ. If He didn't perform this act, we would never be able to return with our Father in Heaven again. Show more Show less
