Hi I'm Jason Macdonald

I grew up in New Hampshire. I'm a college student and a three sport athlete. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play soccer, baseball and basketball. I am a college student and I am engaged to be married to the love of my life. I'm bilingual and I speak English and Spanish. I love being outdoors and doing activities such as hiking, snowboarding, rock climbing and other outdoor activities.

Why I am a Mormon

Through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I have learned and come to a personal knowledge that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ and the Son of the Living God. I continue to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ because I know that by being faithful and living the commandments that He has given us will allow me to be with my family forever. I know that through living the Gospel we all will be blessed with the chance to learn and grow in a great manner and fully live up to our divine potential that we all have as children of our loving Heavenly Father. I know He lives and that Christ our Savior lives as well, and that they are always looking out for our well-being and know each of us personally. I also know that the Atoning sacrifice that Jesus Christ performed allows us all to receive a forgiveness of our sins and mistakes no matter how big or small they are and that because of that sacrifice we all can change and become much better people.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reaching out everyday to find others in need of help or even just a smile. I love to help motivate others and help them see their potential just like our Heavenly Father does and I enjoy seeing how people are able to make changes in their lives just by learning what they are capable of doing. I also love to serve both the members of the congregation and the community through different projects and ideas that bring to pass the greater good for everyone.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Jason Macdonald
I know that through the great and eternal Plan of our Heavenly Father that was formed before the world was, that families can and will be together forever. It is not for any of us to determine who will enter into Heaven and who will I've in God's presence. It is up to our eternal judge who is our Savior Jesus Christ to make that final judgement. That is why we as children of God seek to help one another live the commandments and teachings of God, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that we can, in the last day, stand before our Lord and Savior with an assurance and knowledge that we have done all that we possibly can in this life to bring to pass the greater good, and that we have lived the commandments we have been given so that we qualify for the great and glorious blessing to live with our beloved family members and friends in the presence of our Heavenly Father.
