Hi I'm James

I’m a complete dork, extreme sport enthusiast, brother, and friend. I love to laugh... ALOT! Oh and I'm a Mormon!!!

About Me

I am the fourth child of six and I was lucky enough to be born into a large rambunctious fun loving family of hooligans. I would like to consider myself an avid snowboarder. I love camping and backpacking and basically all extreme sports. I love all things Disney and any food that most people would consider way to spicy. I love teaching and cooking and i have a strange obsession with collecting ties to occasionally switch up my mood. I can come up with a movie quote for almost any situation. My dad is my hero and because of him my biggest dream is to a husband and father... and be awesome (still in the works). My family means everything to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I’m Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true!!!!! It’s really as simple as that. I didn’t always know that the church was true but there came a time in my life when I had to know for myself that what I had been taught all my life was more than what my parents believed or what was "the norm" where i grew up. So I decided to do exactly what I had been told all my life just hadn’t done, read the Book of Mormon and pray and ask God if it is true. I did it and now I can say with all honesty that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it is the evidence that the LDS Church is His church once again established on the earth! I know and so can you. In short I’m a Mormon because a 14 year old boy had a question and had it answered by God the Father and Jesus Christ in a grove of trees. Now tell me that am not awesome... AND IT’S TRUE!!!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary and nothing has made me so happy. I get to teach people (and learn from people) everyday about how much God loves us and how we can show our love for him. This has been way more than the best two years of my life... it’s been the best two years FOR my life. My faith means more to me than just putting on a black name tag that creams "HEY IM MORMON!!" i try to follow the example of our Savior in the way i live my life to bless others and try to forget about myself for a moment or to. In short i live my faith by doing all i can to help others find real, tangible, lasting joy!!! That makes me happy!
