Hi I'm Kason Frigetto

Colorado native, adventurer, photographer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an LDS missionary from Colorado serving in the Kentucky Louisville mission. At home I spent my time playing lacrosse, doing photography, wakesurfing at Lake Powell, picking a guitar, camping, hiking, fishing, offroading in Moab, playing sand volleyball, skiing, and participating in many other typical reckless-youth shenanigans. Whatever it was, I was always doing it with my incredible family or my group of best friends who I either grew up with at church or met playing lacrosse. I also love reading and watching movies. I'm probably among the most adamant Star Wars lovers you will ever meet. I get emotional about it. My favorite book is The Alchemist by Paul Coelho (next to The Book of Mormon). I find the most joy when I do these things, especially when I have those who I love most with me. I'm so grateful for my church and the many ways it has helped me live my life to the fullest.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this church is the true church on the earth and is the same church established by Christ during his earthly ministry. Being a Mormon has taught me many life skills and virtues that are vital to my success and happiness in life and have been forgotten by most of my generation. No other church has the focus on living healthy, happy, fulfilling lives based on Christ's example that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has. I am always guided by the knowledge I have gained through faith, through the gift of the Holy Ghost, and through the priesthood. This is the true church and it has been restored to the earth and has brought me enlightenment, guidance, and happiness that I believe many who live in this world don't quite know.

How I live my faith

I have been active in my ward at home for almost my entire life. I live my life with my mind always focused on Christ and what I learn at church/in the scriptures and the relationships I develop through doing this. I've been given many opportunities to be a leader and to be a learner and to be a friend. Church has helped me to make many achievements in my life such as getting my Eagle Scout and Duty to God awards. Currently, I am serving as a full-time missionary in Kentucky. I dedicate every day to sharing the restored gospel of Christ to the people who live here. I do this because I know it is true and that it can bless the lives of others.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Kason Frigetto
Many believe that Joseph Smith is the author of the Book of Mormon and that incorrect statement is often taught by anti-Mormons to slyly discredit the Book of Mormon. But upon reading the Book, one will see that the record itself was actually written by ancient prophets just as the Bible was. These prophets all lived around the same time as the prophets in the Bible but in a different part of the world, the Americas. They wrote down everything they could to preserve their history and the many ways they saw the hand of God working among their people. They also wanted future generations (us) to receive this record so we can know that God is real and His Son, Jesus Christ, is our Savior. Joseph Smith, while he did not write the Book of Mormon, is responsible for translating the ancient records of these prophets into the scripture we have today. Show more Show less

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Kason Frigetto
There a many ways you can find someone to talk to in person about our church. The easiest is to ask a friend or neighbor who you know is a Mormon! Almost all active members of our church are always willing to answer questions and discus our faith. Trust me, our members love talking about what we believe. And if they can't answer your questions, ask them to refer you to the Mormon missionaries, the travelling ministers of our church. If you don't know any Mormons, there's other things you can do. On this website, the home page has a small online form you can fill out to request a free Book of Mormon to be delivered to your home. The missionaries should be there within 24 hours of your request to personally give you your book and to discuss with you whatever you want to know about it! You can also usually see the missionaries around town on their bikes or on foot. They are easy to recognize in their white shirts and ties with their black name tags. Also on this website, there is a meeting house locator. You can use this to find the address of the closest LDS church building to you and the time that the services begin there. We always meet on Sundays (except for twice a year) and our full Sunday services are 3 hours long. You will see our churches name on the side of the church and beneath it you will see "Visitors Welcome." Feel free to simply walk in. If no one approaches you, find the nearest person and tell them you're visiting for the first time. They'll take care of you! Show more Show less

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Kason Frigetto
Jesus did appear in His resurrected form to the people living in the Americas at the time. He taught them, healed their sick, blessed their children, and organized His church among them. The Book of Mormon describes this event in detail in the book of 3 Nephi, chapters 11-18. I know that this event took place and it makes sense to me that it would. Jesus loves every one of God's children. Why would He limit His grace and His ministry to the people living in Israel? Everyone on earth both in ancient times and modern times deserves to know that Jesus is their Savior. He did visit and minister to the people of the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Kason Frigetto
No, Mormons do not worship Joseph Smith. That would be like saying any other Christian church worships Moses or Isaiah. These men are prophets. While we respect and honor them for their service and actions in God's name, we don't worship them. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. He restored the Church of Jesus Christ in its fullness. His intentions were never to be worshiped, but to help us understand who we should worship: God the Father and His Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
