Hi I'm Jay

I'm from southern Cali and I'm currently serving a Mission is salt lake city. I love being a Mormon

About Me

I am from a family of 6 kids I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers. I love cars any kind new old anything I can drive or work on and get greasy with. I enjoy Mountain biking, baseball, football, camping, really doing anything out side with people I love. I also enjoy music and hanging out with friends just doing what ever we can find to entertain our selves.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have learned for my self that this church is true and that its teachings will lead us to live with our eternal father.I have seen people join the church and almost over night there lives have changed, I have also seen the reverse when people leave the gospel they lose blessings they start struggling with challenges they would have never had or a challenge that would have been no problem to deal with when they had the gospel. With this gospel and with Jesus Christ any trial any hardship any heartache can be over come. Also because of temple marriage I can be with my family for ever. I learned this through a lot of prayer and fasting I also read Moroni 10:3-5, with this I was able to receive a confirmation from the spirit that this was true and that this is where I need to be. I know that if you pray with real intent and truly ask of the lord that he will confirm the truth of the book of Mormon to you also.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving God and others as best I can. I do what I can to help my brothers and sisters learn and grow. I attend church every week and take the sacrament and renew my covenants I made at baptism. I also have served in youth leadership and other calling in the church. I believe if I have the opportunity to bless some ones life or influence them for good I need to do it. I want to do everything I can to become like Christ in every area of my life.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Jesus Christ dyed, or performed the atonement for us so that we could overcome our imperfections and return to live with our father in heaven. In this life we have two obstacles we must overcome. One our physical death is from adam and eve when they partook of the forbidden fruit they became mortal so all of us there children are also mortal. We did not choose to become mortal so why should we die and lose our body? The other Obstacle is our mistakes or sin. Because God is perfect we must be perfect if we want to live with him again. We all will make at least one mistake or sin in this life there is no way for any of us to be perfect so none of us can return to live with God. We overcome these obstacles through Jesus Christ. He lived a perfect life and then suffered all of our sins, he paid the price for them so in turn he asks us to repent so we can be forgiven. Our sin is like a debt to god god demands justice which is perfectness we can never pay this debt so Christ did and we just asks that we do our best to repent and be like him. That is how we over come our sins or spiritual death. We overcome the physical death easily. Because we did not choose to be mortal, it was chosen for us. Christ died and was resurrected, and he gives resurrection to all of us as a free gift. No matter how you live you life you will be saved from this death by the grace of Christ. We are all saved, but we must repent to return to live with god in the celestial kingdom. Show more Show less
