Hi I'm Nick Jamison

I grew up in California, I attended BYUI, I am serving in the West Virginia Charleston Mission, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Brentwood California, and raised in the church, always wanted to serve a mission, but when it came time to submit my papers I was told I had to loose 40 Lbs before I could, so that I would be in tip top shape, so there would be nothing in the way of hindering me from hastening the Lords work. After one year, hard work, and thousands of prayers, I was able to shed the weight and turn in my papers. I was called to the West Virginia Charleston Mission. I am an outdoor enthusiast, I enjoy fishing, hunting, hiking, and jeeping.

Why I am a Mormon

My families conversion story all started with the passing of my mother. She was baptized into the church when she was a teenager, but as life went on she fell away from the church. After my mothers passing, my father started to weigh the question of if there is more to this life than just here on Earth. This is what is called a "question of the soul", and when the Missionaries explained to him that this life is preparatory to the next, and that our family can be together again, his question was answered. The Missionaries gave him a copy of The Book of Mormon, and through his reading, he gained a testimony that what the Missionaries was teaching was in fact true, 5 weeks later he and my older sister were baptized, and when I turned the age 8, I too was baptized. I have been a Mormon for almost my entire life, as each day goes on it only strengthens my testimony that God is our loving Heavenly Father, that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer, that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God who translated the most correct book on this earth today called The Book of Mormon and that Christ has restored his church back on this earth today, the only true church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

The phrase Charity of Christ is what I look forward to as I live my days. With constant study, prayer, and help from my companion, it is a somewhat feasible lifestyle. I attend church weekly, give service whenever possible and probably the most noticeable outward expression is my name tag on my white dress shirt and tie. But how I live my faith as an outward expression is only a sneak peak on how I show my faith to the Lord through my inward expressions. Possibly the most important person that you should express your faith to is the Lord. Though He knows you better than you do, expressing to the Lord internally lets Him know that you still have faith in Him by showing your obedience to Him, through prayer, clean and Christ like thoughts, and always striving to be better leads to the outward expression that people around us can see and feel. I am serving a mission for 2 years. 2 years away from family, away from friends, away from media, some may say that I am away from the world. Though I (along with close to 80,000 other missionaries) am away from the world, I am in constant company of my Heavenly Father. I am devoting 2 years of my life as a outward expression of my faith to not only the lord, but to my family, friends, and those I come in contact with while I am serving.
