Hi I'm Jackson Odle

I'm a son of a convert. I have alopecia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports, I grew up playing baseball, football, and basketball. I played football and baseball through out High School. I'm an avid skier. I especially love the outdoors, including camping and fishing. I live with a disease called alopecia, which means my hair falls out. I have been bald since the age of 8, like my dad always said, "God only made so many perfect heads, the rest he covered with hair."

Why I am a Mormon

I am the son of a convert, who accepted the gospel when he was 18 years old. I've seen the impact that it has had on my life, and I pray that others can have this happiness too. I'm a Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true. I've read it, I've studied it, I've shared it. Without a doubt I know that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. I have a testimony in Joseph Smith. I know that he in fact did see Jesus standing on the right hand of God. I have a testimony of Jesus Christ, and his atonement. The healing power that comes from it is the greatest blessing God has given to us. I know these things to be true, in the name of our beloved Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My purpose is to bring others unto Christ. I help teach others where they came from, why they are here, and where they are going. I love sharing this glad message.
