Hi I'm Jason

I grew up in Mississippi and Utah. I play the trombone and love geocaching. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the father of two handsome little boys; I can't wait to come home every night to be with my family. I love books and am always searching for another great sci-fi series to read. If I had every different kind of musical instrument in the world, I would probably learn to play them all! For now, my musical history lies with the trombone, piano, tuba, baritone, trumpet, french horn, clarinet, guitar, various percussion instruments, and I sing bass--the lower the better. I spend spare moments geocaching wherever I can. I graduated college and am working hard to support my family. I consider each day a success if I can make my wife laugh at least once.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God lives and that He knows me personally. I am a literal spiritual son of a loving Heavenly Father. Despite my imperfections, He wants me to succeed and has provided a way for me to return to His presence. The commandments do not restrict me from enjoying life to the fullest--on the contrary, they free me from the evils and sorrows that are found throughout the world today. God's love is evidenced by the fact that we have a living prophet again on the Earth. Christ leads His Church today through direct revelation to His prophet and apostles, just like He did in olden days. I know that true happiness is found through obedience to laws and counsel given from God and not from the world. That true joy is available to all in this life and into eternity after we die, if we choose it. I know that I can be with my family forever because of the blessings of the restored gospel, and that brings me true joy. I am a Mormon because I know this Church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through uplifting and inspiring music. I conduct the choir for my ward. Through each practice and performance, I have the opportunity to express my love for the Savior by the means of that universal language: music. It touches the soul in ways that words cannot describe. Each carefully selected song allows the Spirit to testify of Christ and His love for each of us.
