Hi I'm Johnathan

About Me

Hi, I'm Johnathan! I'm from a small town in Utah, and am from a family of five. I am serving an LDS mission in Louisiana and I love it!! I love to ski, snowboard, fly fish, go backpacking, repelling, play hockey, soccer, sing, play the piano and the guitar, be at the ocean, and just about anything that is a quality good time. After my mission, i will be attending an instate University.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because when I live by the commandments of the Lord Jesus Christ, I am truly happy. It comforts me to know where I came from, what my purpose is, and where I am going. I know I am only eighteen and I don't know a whole lot, but here is what I do know: I know that there is a God, and he loves all of his children. "For God so loved to world that he gave his only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)" He has a plan, he has a purpose, and he has a way. I bare testimony that Jesus Christ, God's only Begotten Son, is that way. Christ suffered the sins, pains, afflictions, and sorrows for all so that we can live with him again. He lives, and he is always there. I bare testimony that a young 14 year old boy knelt in a grove of trees and saw God the Father and Jesus Christ. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet, I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and I know that we have a living prophet today, Thomas S. Monson. My testimony is why I am a Mormon. I love my religion, I love my God, and I love my Savior.

How I live my faith

I have been in many leadership positions from the time I was a youth, (age 12-18) to now. I do my very best to follow ALL of Gods commandments and try to find opportunities to serve. I love home teaching, and I love sharing the Gospel. I am serving an LDS Mission and try to show by action, thought, word,and deed that I live my faith. I love my God, I love my Savior, and I love my Faith.
