Hi I'm Jon

I grew up in the United States. I am twenty-two years old. I am leaving to serve a Mission this year. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up LDS. I am twenty-two and teach a class of young men twice a month. I will be leaving to serve a Mission this year.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that my Redeemer Lives! I know that He is always there for me. I know how He wants me to live my life. He has blessed me to live in a time when I can take joy in every blessing that he can offer. I know where I stand. I stand with my Savior. Laboring in His Kingdom.

How I live my faith

Having grown up Mormon my family always attended Sunday Meetings and I did the things that I was expected to like being ordained to the Aaronic Priesthood, joining Boy Scouts, and attending early-morning seminary. At the time I almost always did those things unwillingly because I did not have a testimony of my own but relied on others. Despite my poor attitude I often remember feeling what I now recognize to be the Spirit testifying to me the truth of the things I was taught. I often remember the example of faithful Brothers and Sisters who lived the Gospel they were trying to teach to me, whether they knew they were having any impact on me or not. I try to live my faith by doing as I have been taught and continue to be taught as I attend all of my Church and Priesthood meetings. I try to love others and to see every person I meet as a son or daughter of God. I try to love others as I learn how my Savior loves me. I teach a class of rowdy young men two Sundays a month. I do my best to sustain others in their callings and try to set an example of service worth following. I live my faith by moving forward even when it seems trials cannot be overcome or sin cannot be forgiven. I live my faith my diligently seeing to my calling and am blessed to know that I am surly getting through to the young men I have been teaching and to know that one person can and does make a difference.
