Hi I'm Jimmy
I am a convert to the church. I joined the church in 1996 after meering my wife. I have 5 children and we live in Alabama. I work for a construction company and love what I do. I enjoy playing golf and love college football.
Why I am a Mormon
I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because during the missionary discussions, the Holy Ghost strongly tetified to me that I needed to join the church and be baptized just like Jesus Christ was baptized. The spirit in the room that night testifeid to me that I had to join the church.
Why do Mormons go on missions?
To help others come unto Christ.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
The Book of Mormon has helped me understand that God did not teach to only one group of people in one geographical area. It has helped me understand that Heavenly Father is there for us if we live worthy, and live by the commandments we have chosen to follow. It has helped me know that the atonement was made for me and that through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, I can return to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by striving to follow the covenants or promises I made with Heavenly Father at the time I was baptized. I serve as on a council of 12 men lead by 3 others that helps to oversee several units in a certain geographical boundary in Alabama. These geographical boundaries are called stakes. I travel to these units on every Sunday except for the first Sunday of each month. I teach the gospel when ever I get the chance. I get to speak on most Sundays in some part of our stake.
