Hi I'm Jon Shorland

I'm a father of two wonderful boys, husband to a beautiful wife. I'm a Police Officer, I enjoy crossfit. I'm a mormon!

About Me

I live in Wales with my beautiful wife and two amazing sons. I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for 9 years and can honestly say it was the best choice that I have ever made. I enjoy spending time with my family and watching them grow. The fact that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints puts so much emphasis on the importance of family and its eternal potential is the greatest aspect of the Gospel to me. My family are my life and the reason that I can continue to press forward with a perfect knowledge that through my faithfulness I can be with those I care for the most forever. I enjoy Crossfit and generally keeping fit and healthy.

Why I am a Mormon

Before becoming a member I was literally the polar opposite to who I am today. At that time I played rugby, drank heavily, and wasted my time and talents on temporal meaningless activities. Now I have a purpose, a direction, one that is fuelled by the knowledge that I can be with my family forever and the testimony that I have that I belong to the true Church of Jesus Christ that has been restored to the Earth.

How I live my faith

I am a Police Officer and as such I have met so many people in this life who have experienced hardships and pain far beyond my own. It is at these times that my testimony has been uplifted as I have felt The Lord work through me to lighten their burdens. To know that I have been a tool in His hands and His mouthpiece in bringing comfort to those in need is sobering and humbling.
