Hi I'm Jason

I am my wife's husband, and my kids dad! And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Missouri and now live in Ohio. Life is good, and I am blessed in so many, many ways.

Why I am a Mormon

The teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints give me a sense of direction and meaning in my life. The teachings of the church give me a sense of gratiude and understanding of who I really am and what I can become. These teachings help me through the trials and struggles of life.

How I live my faith

I teach, lead and serve the adult men from 18 to 50 or so. I am very grateful that I have this opportunity. I have the chance to learn and grow so much by serving these men.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Jason
I grew up in western Missouri near where many events of early church history took place. Growing up in this area, I developed a deep respect and love for the Prophet Joseph Smith. I really enjoyed learning and reading about him. When I was seventeen years old I had the opportunity to visit the Carthage Jail, where the martyrdom of the Prophet Joseph took place. While on that visit it ocurred to me that though I had love and respect for Joseph Smith, I did not know for myself if Joseph Smith was a prophet. At the end of my visit, I said a simple but heart felt prayer to ask Heavenly Father if Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. The answer came, very quietly, but very powerfully! I knew for myself that Joseph Smith was in deed a prophet of God! I now know that Joseph Smith is a prophet, this knowledge has bless my life with understanding. Heavenly Father does in reality communicate with His children, both individually and though His prophets. Show more Show less
