Hi I'm Jason

I love to play and watch all types of sports. I love the outdoors. I love hanging out with friends and family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am an eighteen year old kid who just recently graduated from high school. I am currently serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Missouri, St. Louis area. I am from a fairly large family of eight people and I am the youngest kid in my family. I have four older sisters and one older brother. My favorite thing to do is to play sports. I played linebacker for my high school football team and I loved doing that. I also love to ski, golf, play basketball, hike, and just be outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I know that he came to this earth and atoned for the sins of his people so that we can have the opportunity to repent and be forgiven of our mistakes. I also know that Joseph Smith restored the true gospel of Jesus Christ in its fullness for us in these latter days. Joseph Smith was able to translate the Book of Mormon with the help of our Heavenly Father so that we can have another witness that our Savior Jesus Christ lived and that he performed incredible miracles while he was here on earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is completely true. I have personally read the book and by doing that I was able to know it is true because of the Holy Ghost (Moroni 10:3-5). By knowing that the Book of Mormon is true, I have been able know that this whole church is true. I am never more happy than when I am following my Savior and I know that the way I can follow Jesus Christ is by being part of his church and gospel, which is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to serve the people around me. Whether it is a family member or a neighbor, I try to make their load easier by helping them out whenever they need it. I try to follow the example of my Savior Jesus Christ by helping everyone. Jesus Christ always gave up his time and efforts to serve the people around him and I want to try to do the same. I know that I never will be able to serve with the exactness that my Savior did, but I try to be willing to serve someone when the opportunity comes. Through helping and being kind to others is how i live my faith.
