Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm from Highland, Utah. I love my family, friends, and sports. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm currently 18 years old and I am serving a two year mission in the Colorado, Colorado Springs Mission speaking Spanish. I have grown up in Utah my entire life as a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love sports, especially College Football and Basketball and my favorite team is the BYU Couagars.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon for all my life. I have always had a testimony that the Church was true and that it made me happy. My parents have done so much to teach me the things that I've needed to know to live a life that the Savior would want me to live, and it has brought so much happiness and peace into my life that's like nothing else in the world. But there was a time in my life when I really wanted to know for myself if this Church was really the true, and Joseph Smith really was a true Prophet. I had always believed that it was, but I wanted to know for certain. I remember very clearly one night when I was reading the Book of Mormon. I remember that after I was done reading, I got on my knees and asked Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was really true, and if Joseph Smith really was a true Prophet. In that moment I remember feeling so much love, happiness, and peace from Heavenly Father, and then I knew that it was true. I also know of the Peace and Love that comes from the Atonement of Jesus Christ. We all make mistakes in life. But I know that if we turn to the Savior and use the gift of the Atonement that he has given us, we can be freed from all the guilt and pain that our foolish choices make us feel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many ways. First, I try to always treat others the way Christ would, and by serving other people as much as I possibly can. I have also lived my faith by deciding to give two years of my life to serve the people in the state of Colorado. The restored Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought so much happiness in my life and I want to share that happiness and truth with other people.
