Hi I'm Jordon Shurtleff

I am a missionary for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Later Day Saints in the Tennessee Knoxville Mission! and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As of now i am a Missionary for the LDS church in Knoxville Tennessee. I absolutely love music. In my life i have played the piano, clarinet, tenor saxophone, percussion, and bassoon. I love working out and staying physically fit. (at least before my mission) I used to spend up to 4 hours at the gym everyday! And i miss that tremendously. But I would honestly prefer working on my spiritual muscles now instead of my physical ones haha I really enjoy illusions and magic tricks. They've always just BLOWN MY MIND! I actually did some magic at my high-school a bit xD It was the bomb! My family owns a small business in Payson UT. named Daltons Steak House. It's a steak and potato place (if you couldn't have guessed) If you're ever there some time you should check it out! I love my family with all my heart and I miss them dearly, but that's one of the reasons why I'm out here. So I can help others be eternally sealed to theirs!

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is true. I have no shadow of a doubt. The church has blessed my life in so many ways i cant even count. By living the lords teachings and following his example I have felt and have been blessed by his love and compassion towards me. I know that President Monson is the true and living prophet on the world today and that he knows the will of our Heavenly Father. I have prayed to know of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon for myself and through the power of the Holy Spirit it has confirmed that it is true. It is the word of God and Jesus Christ and it has the power to bring anyone to have a closer relationship with them. Again I say I KNOW THIS CHURCH IS TRUE. And the lord has shown me this truth time and time again. Because he loves me, and he wants me to return to him. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a full time missionary for the LDS church! My purpose is to bring souls unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the holy ghost and enduring to the end. I help people come closer to the lord in the same way I have. And help them understand that they are children of the only living god and He loves them with all his heart and wants them to return to him some day. I try teaching the gospel through my actions, and try to continually be an example of the Gospel.
