Hi I'm Jackson

I grew up in a small farm town in Idaho, I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in a small farm town. I have two older brothers and a little sister. I enjoy sports. mainly basketball and football, but I enjoy most everything else as well. I am 18 years old. my favorite book in the Book of Mormon is probably... Mormon. and I love the Lord of the Rings.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. everything that I have learned spiritually has come from church or my parents. i love this religion and i believe all of its teachings and the Book of Mormon. i know that from church. when i was younger year after year of learning the same thing it was vain repetition in my head but now i don't know what i would be without it. i used to get bored in church but now i look forward to it every week. my family is a big part of it. my mom's side of the family is only partly into the church but she is an amazing person and mother and has brought/made us go to church. i am so glad that she did without doing so i would not be near as into church as i am now.

How I live my faith

mostly threw church, and personal prayers. my community is surrounded by wards and we are a branch so that's pretty awesome. we are small but big in heart. most of the members are farmers. Now Farmers here have big faith and a great sense of humor. there are Sundays at church where I laugh all day, feel the spirit, or a combination of both. with my personal prayers I do my best to pray with the spirit. I do my best to follow what i am feeling, and try to avoid repetition. however some times i continually ask and ask for things and the spirit ceases. then i remember to say prayers of thanks and it makes me feel good and more blessing come my way. the best is when i am really feeling the spirit and i don't have any thing prepared in for a pray and the spirit takes me and i poor out my feelings to God. he here's and answers me and that is a huge faith builder
