Hi I'm Jackson

I'm a Musician, and an Actor. I have been a Mormon my whole life.

About Me

I just graduated from Box Elder High School. I performed in the Madrigal singing group, and the top theater performing group called, Productions. I love singing and performing in plays/musicals. I have performed in several plays and have been many lead roles in those plays, like Romeo in Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," and several other plays and musicals. I taught myself how to play the guitar in my junior year of high school and now I play every breathing second I get. I love my Seagull Guitar more than I like to eat. Sophomore year (age 15), I ran the Ogden Marathon with my mom we competed it in 4:26:28, I love running and I can't wait to run another Marathon after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a part of this church since I was born. I have chosen to be a member of this church because the Holy Ghost has witnessed to me of this to be true doctrine of Jesus Christ. I have read the Book of Mormon and know it to be true. I have participated in the doctrines of this church and that is why I know it to be true. You can't learn something unless you try it first, and that is what I have done with this church.

How I live my faith

I've been the youth leader in my ward since I was 12. I have also been the Co-leader of a week long LDS sponsored camp for 16 to 18 year old boys. And now I have been called to serve an LDS Mission in Cusco, Peru. Because this church has helped my life I want to share this happiness to everyone. I'm not a good speaker or a person who goes out of their way to say something, but because I believe this church is important I need to share it. I'm excited to share my faith with anyone who will let me speak.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Jesus Christ bore and suffered for the sins of everyone on this earth. This made it possible for us to wash our sins through baptism and to repent weekly through receiving the Sacrament in our church meetings. Because of the Atonement we can repent and become like our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
