Hi I'm John

I'm from a small town in Washington. I went to college in Hawai'i and lived in Arizona. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from BYU - Hawaii in accounting and political science. I love working on classic cars with my dad and brothers, and I love cruising. I'm a big Utah Jazz fan, through thick and thin! I also love music and singing - I have previously played the bagpipes, and now play the ukulele. The only sport I played in high school was golf, and I still love it. I love shooting guns, surfing, bodysurfing, hiking, biking, playing any sport (even when its a struggle...haha), fishing, spearfishing, and pretty much anything else outside! I am currently a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in West Valley City, Utah. I love my family and friends, and am so grateful for them and all their love and support!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this church brings genuine happiness to my life. When I am active in my faith, my life is amazing, rewarding, and fulfilling; things just seem to go good. When I am distant from the Church, my life isn't as happy, and I struggle to see things in a positive light. Being a Mormon gives me an unparalleled perspective on life - I am able to put important things first, and understand the magnitude of life events. I love this church, and I love the peace and fulfillment it brings me. I cannot imagine my life without a knowledge of God's love and plan for me. Life is meant to be enjoyed, and I have found real enjoyment in this Gospel and the things that it brings me (family, friends, love, peace).

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith in all aspects of my life. I love being involved at Church - any type of participation helps to bring the Spirit. I also enjoy giving service through Church programs to other members and to individuals from other faiths. As a full-time missionary, I am able to invite others to follow Jesus Christ and help them know how to do so.
