Hi I'm Matison Johnson

Im from Alaska. Love to Snowmachine. I love my family. Im serving a mission in Denver Colorado, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Oregon but moved to Alaska when I was under a year old. I grew up in a very outdoorsy family with a remote cabin near Trappers Creek, AK. We (all of my family) love to snowmachine and have a great time together. I enjoy backcounrty skiing and snowboarding. I live life to the fullest and dont want to fall asleep at night knowing I missed out on a great story. I love big trucks and trailers. I love sports and play them any chance I get.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a memeber ofthe church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, and did see God the father and his son Jesus Christ. Thru him Jesus Christ restored the preisthood athourity and his gospel to the earth. I have seen how Coming closer to Christ through baptizm can help ones life. Christ can comfort you and will if you ask. I have felt the Atonment work in mylife and know that through Christ we can return to live with God one day.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full time mission in the Dencer North mission. I love the way I have seen the gospel effect lives.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Matison Johnson
The Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus Christ really lived, that He was and is God’s Son. It contains the writings of ancient prophets. One of these, Lehi, lived in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. God commanded Lehi to lead a small group of people to the American continent. There they became a great civilization. God continued to call prophets among these people. The Book of Mormon is a collection of the writings of their prophets and record keepers. It is named after Mormon, one of the last of these ancient prophets. These prophets knew about Heavenly Father’s plan for His children and the mission of Jesus Christ. They recorded that Christ appeared, after His Resurrection, to the people in America, taught them His gospel, and formed His Church among them. The book contains the teachings of Jesus Christ, testifying of His Atonement and His love. It supports and verifies the Bible. The Book of Mormon concludes with a great promise that those who read it and sincerely pray about it can know by the Holy Ghost that it is true (Moroni 10:4). Show more Show less
