Hi I'm Jameson Shirley

I grew up in Logan Utah, I live in Vancouver Washington, I love sports and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jameson. I like pole vaulting, playing piano, and being active. I am an eagle scout. I attend Brigham Young University. My friends and family are important to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i love the true peace and joy that comes from living the standards taught in church. This Gospel brings love into our lives. Through repentance we can be forgiven of our sins and guilt that is felt from going against Gods will, will be gone. I have felt this love and forgiveness in my life. By living the commandments and keeping promises we make with God, we will feel Gods love for us. I have felt this love. God loves all of his children, both me and you! He is willing to bless us if we do what he asks, faith, repentance, baptism, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and endure through all trials with joy and faith. God loves us enough to send us prophets. Prophets like Moses and Abraham. We have prophets today. Thomas S. Monson is today's living prophet. If you listen to him talk you will know that he is a prophet. If God is the same yesterday today and forever then we would never not have a prophet. Joseph smith was a true prophet. This means that The Book of Mormon is true. This book testifies of Jesus Christ and his coming to the Americas. This book is true. I wouldn't be giving up two years of my life to go to Scottsdale Arizona and testify that i know that this book is true if I didn't know that this book is true. This gospel is true. It brings true happiness and joy to all those who live it. I have felt this happiness and joy in my life. The gospel is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to live the commandments that God has given us. I am about to serve a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints. I will be serving in Scottsdale Arizona. I serve in the Temple. I love it.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Jameson Shirley
Absolutely yes! The family is eternal (lasts forever) if we choose to make it that way. Making it last forever includes a couple things 1. Sealed by the sealing power The sealing power was given to Peter in Mattew 16:19. The priesthood power of God is the authority to perform ordinances such as baptism and marriage on earth and have the ordinance be valid in heaven. Without the prieshood authority this would not be possible. The sealing ordinance can only be performed in Holy temples. . 2. Keeping the promises we make to God when we are sealed. When we are sealed in the temple we promise o be obedient to God's commandments for the rest of our life. Through obedience to his commandments we can live wih our families forever.
