Hi I'm Johnathon

I come from a large family. I'm a runner. I love to read. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished high school at a community college. I participated in sports at the local high school, such as cross country, track and lacrosse. Besides team sports, I like to snowboard, surf, hike, and sometimes my friend will have me do parkour with him, although I'm not very good. I love to read and to learn. Some of my favorite books are Ender's Game, The Hobbit, and other adventurous fictions. I have 11 siblings and am not sure how much sanity I have left. I love to explore and find out new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that this is Jesus Christ's true church, and that He is at the head of it. I have grown up in this church, but I've found that simply growing up in the church doesn't make you a Mormon. I have found out for myself, the same way that if I had not grown up in the church, that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I love the joy that can be found in the church and the peace that can be found from living the commandments. I'm grateful for Jesus and for His perfect atonement, and that through it I can be forgiven of my sins and become perfect.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others as Christ did. I may not be perfect at it, but I try to be kind to everyone I meet. Because of my faith, I will be serving a mission for two years in Peru. There I will be teaching everyone I can about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and the happiness it can bring to them. I will be offering service when ever I can and in whatever way I can.
