Hi I'm Johnathon

I live in Soldotna Alaska, play piano and guitar, am going to go on a mission, know ASL, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play piano and guitar, am an eagle scout, and love to help others learn to play music. I plan to go to college and major in Chemical Engineering, before going on to get my MD certification and becoming a trauma surgeon. Later, I plan to become a United States Senator and afterward, a teacher. I love my hometown of Soldotna, it's an amazing place to live, and I couldn't have asked for a better family. In the local community college, i was taught ASL by a sign language Interpreter, I leave to go to Colorado Denver South Mission for my mission, and I leave on July 31st, 2013! My favorite physical activity is mountain biking (we've got loads of cool trails up here in 907 North West!) and I love my life here.

Why I am a Mormon

I *Know* that Jesus Christ died for my sins, and I know that through Him and His atonement, I can be forgiven and improve myself each and everyday. I am thankful that I have an amazing family and tutors in this life, thankful for the restored Gospel. I *Know* that Joesph Smith was a true, honest, all-for-all Prophet of God, called to minister and start the restoration. I *Know* that I can be with my family in Heaven, and meet with them again when I pass from this mortal existence. And I promise, on my life, honor, and everything that I hold dear, that this is the True Church.

How I live my faith

I love to serve here in Soldotna. I live in a place where a woodstove is a common source of heat, and hunting is a common source of food. Every time i get up early to help someone fill their shed for the winter, I get to think of how it benefits them and how amazing it is that I can be a part of their lives. I Also get the chance to teach the youth at times, through the BSA and by common inspiration. My absolute favorite times, anytime, is when I get to sit in a tent or around a campfire with my friends, talking about the truth of the gospel and telling them how much happiness it had brought to me. I could not imagine my life without it, without the *continual* joy it brings me, and I hope that I can do the very best I can in serving and learning. I love my life, I love my faith.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

I know simply because I have studied it and felt the Holy Ghost tell me that it is true. Everything else is simply bookkeeping. Show more Show less
