Hi I'm James

I am the son Methodist Pastors, Heavenly Father changed my life, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the son of two United Methodist Pastors. I work for a National Health Insurance Company. I enjoy golfing, football, camping, four wheeling, and white water rafting. Someday I want to become an expert sky diver and learn to fly fish.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because when I received the Book of Mormon, I read it, I studied it, and I earnestly prayed to know if it was true. The overwhelming assurance of it's truth was carried into my heart by The Holy Spirit. In the years since this experience I have come to know more truth about The Book of Mormon and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I'm a Mormon because I love The Book of Mormon, latter day prophets, the restoration of the Priesthood, and the knowledge that I can be with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by showing up when I am needed. I realized that I don't have to be the strongest, smartest, or fastest. I just do my best to do what is asked of me. To quote President Deiter F. Uchtdorf, I try to "Lift where I stand."

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

James
I came to know my Father in Heaven trough two simple steps that any one can follow. The first and possible most important step is believing that He is real and that He loves you. The second step is built upon this faith. By prayer, reflection, scripture reading, and keeping His commandments you can receive direction and peace in your life. Outgrowths of this are witnessed as you exercise your faith and serve those around you; you will not only feel Heavenly Fathers love for you but also for those you serve. Show more Show less
