Hi I'm Jonathan

I am alaskan grown, a homebuilder, a fish slayer, and im a mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at BYU Provo in the construction management program. I love to build and feel so good when i do it. I returned from serving a full-time mission in villahermosa mexico in 2013. I love to play basketball and any other sport i can. i also love to play music, i play the trumpet and the guitar and i love to sing. I have been so blessed in my life with the people that surround me and have built me up throughout my life. Having grown up in alaska, my heart loves the outdoors. camping, hiking, fishing, everything outside i love to do it, rain or shine, snow or ice. i couldnt have asked for a better life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I have hope. There is nothing on this earth more important to me than my family and I want to be with them forever. I know that life is hard, there is always going to be more opposition, more trials, more mountains to climb, but I also know that if we trust in our Savior, He will give us the strength to carry on. He wont take away the opposition, but He will give us the strength to overcome it. That is the power of the atonement. He has promised us that if we will but trust in Him and face our challenges with a smile and faith, that we will be reunited with our families forever. We will live with Him again and we will experience a "fullness of joy." 3 Nephi 28:10 As life gets harder, I need the help of my Savior and older brother Jesus Christ. I know that He loves me and you, and if we will but trust Him, He will show us the way to true happiness.

How I live my faith

I feel that the best way to live my faith is through a constant effort to be like the Savior. He is a perfect example as to what we should be and what we can become. I enjoy going to church to learn about Him and what He has done for me and what He expects of me. I try to make Him a part of all my everyday conversations and try to be an instrument in His hands. I love to serve others around me in any situation i can. By trying to do what the Savior would do in each moment is how i believe that i can become more like Him. I know that as we come to know Christ better, as we learn of Him, we will love Him and our behavior will change and we will become more like Him. There is no greater joy than that. "If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him." John 14:23
