Hi I'm Jason

I grew up in the church and found for myself the truth. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Idaho and have always had a passion for animals and outdoors. As well science has always been an interest to me. I love making funny short videos, acting including improv comedy. I am a very fun loving person that loves to tell jokes and help others get a laugh. I'm going to college to increase my learning.

Why I am a Mormon

As a child I grew up in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have truly been blessed with two parents who are very loving, kind and respectful to me and my decisions. They invited me to always go to church, and I always joined them in attending services. They were very influential to me with their example and the great example of other family members which made me desire the joy I could see they had as they were faithful in the church. I made the decision when I was 8 to be baptized. Later on in my life I began to question if the church was true. I had to ask for myself and loving family members and friends did not force me to do anything but invited me to go to the Lord and pray to know if it was true. I also studied a great deal of the Book of Mormon which helped me know that it is true. My answer did not come all in one moment but was more of a process that began to work in me, and before I knew it I was sure of its truth. It wasn't any great big even that made me say "aha! Its true!" but it was a peaceful feeling that came in my heart that helped me feel of its truthfulness. I know that this was the Holy Ghost Speaking to me. I later served as a full time missionary of the church in Mexico which was a truly great blessing to me. I honorably finished my mission and gained a greater testimony of this church and its truthfulness. As well the mission has given me a great deal of knowledge from the Lord to be stronger in keeping all the Lords commandments. I now am striving to get as much education as possible and prepare myself for an eternal marriage in the temple. I am love serving others and know that when we serve others we are truly much more happy than when we think only about ourselves.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by daily seeking to connect with God at points throughout my day. Some of these key points are morning and evening prayers and daily scripture study. I have found that during my day if I seek to serve others and help them in their lives I am happier. I have been very blessed with assignments in the church which have helped me to grow by focusing on others. I know that as we put God first, then others and ourselves last we will be truly happier. Each day I study and prepare for my future family so that I can one day provide for them spiritually and physically.
