Hi I'm Zach Jackson

I am from Gilbert, Arizona and I am serving a Mission in Des Moines, Iowa and I am a Mormon

About Me

I was Born in Provo, Utah whilst my parents were at school and moved a couple of times here and there and finally ended up In Gilbert, Arizona. I lived there for 11 years and love Arizona! Wouldn't want to grow up anywhere else! In High School I played football and then attend BYU for one semester before serving a mission! I am currently serving a mission in the Iowa, Des Moines Mission and love everything about it! I was also called to speak spanish during my mission. After my mission I will go back to BYU and apply to the Business Program. I enjoy everything about the outdoors and especially going to the lake!

Why I am a Mormon

Well I guess that most kids born from active member parents grow up into the church so it is more of a culture than a choice as a child. For most of my life I had taken my parents other peoples belief if this was a true church. I But as we all grow up, we have the opportunity to find out for ourselves. I can honestly say that I have tested the challange in Moroni 10: 3-5 in the Book of Mormon and I have found out for myself. Since then I have never gone to church or done the right thing because my parents or others want me, I did those things because I knew they were true and I wanted to do them. If we follow the examples and commandments of our Savior and our Heavenly Father, in the end, everything will be so much better than disobeying or trying to do everything on our own. To me it is literally the smartest choice to make.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by showing my faith! As a Mormon, and more as a missionary, you are always being looked upon by everyone. I hope that my appearance is one that represents what the Lord and Jesus Christ would want!
