Hi I'm Jaxon Huffaker

I am the 20 who rebuilt 5 classic cars. I live through the lense of my GoPro. And, I;m a Mormon

About Me

Hello friend! I was born and raised in Mesa, AZ, but for some reason, I am still as white as a ghost...I dont get it. I have restored 5 classic cars and worked on countless others. My Gopro is like an attachment to my arm and I am perfectly okay with it. Family is literally everything to me and my best friend is my own dad! I am kinda REALLY social and honestly have no personal bubble. Being myself has never really been a problem! I like to think of myself as a professional food consumer. Aka, I LOVE food! I guess to sum it all up I like; cars, action sports, family, being myself, food and of coarse, family. Oh, and the reason all of things are possible is because i am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints! Without Christ, none of this would be possible!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon. Born one. Baptized one. However not converted as one until 18 years into my life. I was baptized a member at 8 years old, yet I didn't understand why. I went through my life going to church because that was what was expected of me. Never really caring. Having, what I thought at the time was, fun. But it wasn't really that fun, now that I think about it, it was actually just sad. I did these things almost because I grew up being told not to do those things. I came to a cross roads in my life. I don't know why but a mission was for some reason, after everything I've done, still there. So, it was between my Mission, and school. I knew what I wanted to do, but I still asked my dad for advice. He told me to read the Book of Mormon and pray with an open heart, ready to act upon that answer I received. long story short, I served a mission! And I know without those blessings in my life I would not be who my Heavenly Father knows I can be. I guess you could say I am a Mormon because of my family. I love my family and am so blessed to know I will be with them for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time. We are promised that we can be with our families forever. Looking at forever can get really, really intimidating. So, taking the advice from a security guard when I first left on my mission, in tears and falling apart I might add, "One day at a time." I love going to church. My ward is like my family! Without them I don't think I would be who I am today. I served as an assistant to the cub scout master. That was such a blessing in my life! I love cub scouts and their untaimted craving for adventure. Seeing the true excitement in their eyes is so worth the preparation for that activity. One of my favorite ways to live what I know to be true is though the Temples. I was given the blessing of walking through the new Gilbert Temple during its open house. It was truly amazing! One thing I know to be true is the power of temples and the sacred ordinances done in them. The true beauty alone is a testimony that there is a God and he loves us enough to give us places like them.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Jaxon Huffaker
A testimony, to me, is knowledge gained in something where it began as curiosity. I guess you can say my curiosity gave me a testimony, or knowing, that Jesus Christ is our Savior, and through His atonement we are able to live with our Heavenly Father again. Show more Show less
