Hi I'm Jason

I grew up in a small town in Alberta. I like playing sports. Right now I am in my first year in university.

About Me

I am 22 years old. I come from a pretty big family. I have an older brother and three younger sisters. I like to be active. I enjoy playing sports, especially volleyball and basketball. I follow sports pretty closely, especially the NBA.I also like doing things outside like camping and fishing. I went on a mission in California when I was 19. I am now in my first year of university. I'm not sure what I will do for a career yet, but I am in a science program. I think one of the best feelings in the world is wearing a brand new pair of socks. I usually buy lots of pairs of socks and at once and save a few pairs. I save them for special occasions when i feel like wearing a brand new pair of socks.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both Mormon and they raised me in the church and taught me to do what is right. When I was 16 or 17 I was planning to go on a mission. I had read the Book of Mormon before and I went to church a lot, but I never really took the time to sincerely ask God if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints was Heavenly Fathers true church on the Earth today. I decided to read the Book of Mormon again and follow Moroni's council in the last chapter. He promises that if we ask God sincerely and we are willing to act on the answer we receive, God will tell us the Book of Mormon is true. To be honest I was a little afraid about what I would do if I didn't receive an answer. When I prayed I was overwhelmed with a feeling of peace and felt that the things I was doing in the church was what God wanted me to do. I have prayed many times since then and God has directed me in my life.

How I live my faith

I really like to do things and be active. I believe God uses his children on earth to bless the lives of others. I try to be ready to serve so I can be there for others when I am needed. Right now I am on the Institute of Religion Student Council. I help to plan activities for other your singles and encourage them to go to institute classes offered at the university. I believe it is important to try to get closer to God every day. It is important to study the scriptures and pray to God every day. I believe it is important to rely on Heavenly Father to make important life decisions. He is the source of all truth and He loves us and wants us to have direction in our lives.
