Hi I'm Jonathan Sant

I am grew up in Califonia, USA. I am a Mormon and I love the service this church does

About Me

I am majoring in software engineering at Brigham Young University Idaho with a minor in business management. I am from Sacramento, California. I graduated from Natomas Charter School`s Performing and Fine-Arts academy. I am a member of the Venturing Boy Scouts of America program serving at the council level.

Why I am a Mormon

For as long as I can remember, I have always gone to church. I was baptized at the age of 8 and grew up in the church. Like some I have struggled with my testimony of the church but over the course of a few years of constant studying, pondering and praying; I testify that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God`s church restored here on earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Joseph Smith in fact knelt in a place called the Sacred Grove and prayed to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and saw them as clearly as I see another person. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon, that it is true and that the teachings it contains are true and were saved for us in these latter days. I know that through the help of the angel Moroni that Joseph Smith translated the plates written by the prophets of the Nephites and the Lamanites. I have a testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ that it is there to help us bear our burdens, challenges and trials that we face everyday. I have seen it work miracles in my life and the lives of others whether they are Mormon or not.

How I live my faith

As a member of my congregation here at Brigham Young University Idaho, I have had the privilege of teaching about the new testament in a class known as gospel doctrine. Now it is my calling to teach gospel lessons while i home teach others in my congregation. I also volunteer at a local pet Shelter here in Rexburg. As one who grew up in boy scouts, i am now giving back to the community through physical service, paying tithing to the church to help church welfare programs that aid those who do not have very much.
