Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Bay Area of California, the third of four kids. I played two years of football and ran four years of track (hurdles) in high school. I served as a missionary in the greater Dallas, Texas area for two years and love the people of Texas. I'm in college, studying public relations.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon, but there comes a time in everybody's life when they have to find out for themselves if what they were taught is true. If there is one thing I know of myself, independent of any outside knowledge parents, Sunday School, research, It's that I can have a personal relationship with God, who is my Father in Heaven. I know from experience that when I ask a question to my Heavenly Father through prayer, he gives me an answer. I asked Him if the principles I learned are true. I asked Him if the Book of Mormon really was His word. I didn't have a vision or anything, I just trusted that the Lord would lead me and not suffer me to go astray without me knowing that I was making a wrong choice. I got my answer. The Book of Mormon and the principles of Jesus' Atonement rang true to my heart. I can't prove it, I can't even really describe it. It makes sense in my head, and it brings my heart peace.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week and do my best to stay involved and engaged in my classes. I try to emulate the example of my Savior, Jesus Christ, at home, at school, at work, and even online where there is a certain degree of anonymity.
