Hi I'm Jonathan

I was born and raised in California. I'm a Returned Missionary. I'm an U.S. Army Infantryman. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Northern California in the foothills of the Sierras. There is no place I love more than the mountains. Growing up I was involved with scouting and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. I served a full time mission in Vancouver, Washington. I soon after enlisted in the U.S. Army as an 11B Infantryman. I am stationed in Texas and have been deployed to Afghanistan. Whenever I get a chance I like to visit with friends and family. When I'm away I use video games as a way to connect with others. I'm always down for an adventure whether it be camping, hiking up a mountain, going to a theme park, rappelling out of helicopters, or just exploring the area around me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born and raised in the church. I am glad to know what this life is about and I have seen how it affects myself and others in our daily lives. I am grateful for the Atonement and sacrifices that Jesus Christ has gone through for us all, and I want to do my best to follow in His example.

How I live my faith

While often difficult with my work schedule, I try to attend church when I can. I make a daily effort to read my scriptures and better myself. I'm always open to questions and love when people want to have a genuine conversation.
