Hi I'm Jackson

Utahn. Spanish Fork to be exact. Life motto: ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE!

About Me

Superheroes! Comics! They are suhweeet! I love to read! Any genre, any time! Preferably in a large recliner by a nice crackling fireplace in a nice soft-lit room with some munchies. I love reading! Harry Potter is dang good! Brandon Sanderson is a great author! Music: Country Music, Alternitive, 80's Rock, and Rap. The High Kings is a favorite group. Other favorites: Imagine Dragons, B.O.B, Eminem, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw. Always turn on Enya to release the tension and fall into sleep. High School was great playing sports, singing in choir and going haywire on Student Council! My family of 8+dog+chickens=Never a dull moment! Traveling will be a hobby of mine! Short bucket list (not necessarily in this order.): 1. Travel to Scotland and wear a kilt. Learn to play bagpipes while I'm there. 2. Extreme slack line the grand canyon. 3. Para glide in Brazil. 4. Learn to surf and carve some waves in Hawaii. 5. Get married and have some kids. I'm serving in the California Fresno mission, Spanish speaking!! It is awesome and I'm truly coming to know who I really am through my service to others.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Latter-day Saint because I have read the Book of Mormon and have felt the witness of the Holy Ghost tell me that what I read is true! I took the challenge in Moroni chapter 10 verses 3-5 and I prayed. The Book of Mormon is true which means the rest of what this church teaches is true. I add my witness to all others who have also found it to be true and invite you to either try it again or try it for the first time.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving a two year mission in the Spanish language sharing the gospel with everybody I see here in California! Shoot! I'd be selfish if I kept this wonderful knowledge and feelings I have come to know to be true to myself! Other ways I live my faith: I read the scriptures every day. I pray every morning, night and before every meal because I know that communication with my Father is necessary to come to know Him better. I strive to live everyday, 24/7, as if Christ were with me at that very moment.

Are Mormons Christians?

Jackson
Yes. Jesus Christ is the center of our doctrine, teachings and our church. He actually leads our church through his spokesperson, the living prophet on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson. Modern scripture called The Book of Mormon coupled with the Bible both act as witnesses and testimonies of the life of Jesus Christ. We are definitely Christian. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jackson
Shoot no! We do NOT worship any beings other than that of God and Jesus Christ! Joseph Smith was an awesome guy though. He was a giant. We revere him. He was the instrument through which the whole truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth and for that, I am forever indebted to him. That is the way we revere him. We do not worship him. Just revere him as a great man and prophet of God. Show more Show less
