Hi I'm Jay

I grew up in Utah. I'm a medical resident. I'm a Florida Gator, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a medical resident specializing in radiology. I love spending time with my wife and three children. I'm happiest when we're learning and having fun together. I like to play tennis and golf and enjoy watching sports and movies. I spent two amazing years teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ in southern Spain. I had a great time learning Spanish, learning about the history and culture of Spain, and sharing my testimony of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've received a personal witness from my Heavenly Father that His son, Jesus Christ, is my Savior and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the church that He has established so that His children can receive all of the blessings that He desires for us. This witness has come through the Holy Ghost as the calm, peaceful feelings I've felt as I've studied the Bible and the Book of Mormon and as I've prayed to ask God if they are true. It's also been strengthened as I've noted the joy and happiness I've felt when I've consistently lived my life according to the Gospel principles taught by Christ and the prophets that God has called to lead His church, as opposed to the empty feelings I've experienced when I haven't followed their teachings.

How I live my faith

I currently have the opportunity to teach a Sunday school class each week focusing on a different principle of the Gospel of Jesus Christ each week. I enjoy studying these principles throughout the week, and planning lessons that will help class members gain a deeper understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and be able to apply its principles in their lives, in order to find greater happiness and peace. I try to follow the example of Jesus Christ and enjoy reading from the scriptures each day with my family and helping my children understand His teachings.
