Hi I'm Jonathan Moon

I grew up in New York near Rochester. I am a father, husband and a social worker. I am also a Mormon.

About Me

I was a commercial roofer for 14 years before I hurt my back and decided to change my career. This was a difficult change as I was newly married with 2 children. I am now a social worker. I am married to an awesome woman and have 3 great boys who I love. I am currently helping my oldest get acquainted with his first year of college. Our middle son is in 10th grade and our youngest just turned 3 and is an amazing child! I love to go camping and to read books, especially the Bible and Book of Mormon. I have faced many personal struggles and challenges in life but have been able to work through them with the help of the gospel of Jesus Christ. One thing that I have learned is that with faith in Christ all things are possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this faith has helped me feel closer to God than anything else I have experienced. This faith has helped me overcome the many challenges that I have experienced in my life. It has helped me to become a better father and husband. Most importantly I am a Mormon because I know that I need the grace of God that the Gospel and Atonement of Jesus Christ offers, so that I can return to live with with my Father in Heaven. In this I have found peace and happiness in this world. This faith has helped me to have the gift of the Holy Ghost to comfort and guide my life. I want others to feel and experience these things and encourage all to pray and ask if these things are true. I know if you ask, you shall receive.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. I read the Bible and the Book of Mormon often so I can better understand His teachings. I believe this is a life long process. I live my faith in my home with my family by teaching and encouraging us all, including myself, to live in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ. I strive to repent when I make mistakes because I realize nobody is perfect. I live my faith by loving God and my neighbor. This means that I enjoy sharing the things that have blessed my life with others. I currently serve in my area by working with our local full time missionaries, new members and current members. I love serving in this church and want all to feel the love of Jesus Christ that I feel in my life.

Are Mormons Christians?

Jonathan Moon
Mormons are definitely Christians. We believe in God the Eternal Father, His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, The Truth, the Way and The Life. We believe that there is no other name given under heaven by which mankind can be saved. It is through his atoning sacrifice that we can be forgiven for our sins, overcome death and return to live with Him eternally. Because of his gospel we can be born again and redeemed. He is the center of our faith and we love Him. Show more Show less
