Hi I'm Jaxon Hansen

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love sports and grew up in Syracuse Utah.

About Me

I love to run I run for a University in Utah and love it so much I love to hunt and play sports and just do anything outdoors. I love my family so much I have one older sister, one younger sister, and two younger brothers. I love to go to the temple the temple is such a peaceful place. I will be serving the Lord our savior for two years in Sydney Australia and am so excited to do so.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because it has standards that are just so phenomenal I remember hearing a talk about choices. We are given agency to choose things for ourselves opposition is at times placed before us for example choosing to do something due to peer pressure or because "everyone is doing it" or even just things that are socially expectable. Our church has put out there a guide for us to help us direct our lives in such a manner pleasing to the lord. Say I am at a party and a "friend" offers an alcoholic beverage to me and I refuse the offer. He/she may in return say "oh yeah you CANT because you are a mormon" this is not true. I like all sons and daughters of god have been given agency so I can use that agency to DRINK if I so choose but I in return might say "I can drink if i so choose my religious background has nothing to do with it i have just made the decision a long time ago that I would not partake of things that are harmful to me. my religion comes in where if i don't partake it pleases Jesus Christ. I love it because it is the SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER. our church stands strong for eternity.

How I live my faith

I have had the wonderful opportunity to grow up in utah where there are so many temples so my friends and i went and did temple work in all of the temples in utah for a road trip and it was so amazing. I also attend my church meetings every Sunday and love my ward so much. I have daily scripture study and pray and write in my journal.
