Hi I'm Joshua James

About Me

I'm happily married and have five wonderful children. I live in an area where I have the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors through hiking and camping. I work in the residential construction industry helping people plan and build their home. Before marriage, I spent a lot of time traveling through military and church missionary service.

Why I am a Mormon

I converted to the mormon church because I learned that God still speaks to men on earth and that his church was restored again through a modern day prophet. The idea that Christ's church is led by a living prophet was new to me but it felt refreshing and real. I remember praying to Heavenly Father about these things and felt strongly that they were true and that I should act on that feeling. I owe all that I have to that testimony. It is also a wonderful feeling to know that God provides a way for families to be together forever through holy temples and through priesthood power.

How I live my faith

I live in a small town and so our church congregation (branch) is relatively small which gives me plenty of opportunities to serve, teach and participate with other latter-day saints in our branch. I mostly live my faith in my day-to-day life at work and home. This area is a very religious and Christian area so it gives me the opportunity to share my testimony of Jesus Christ with others of similar belief. I strive each day to teach my children about who Jesus is as the Savior of the world.

What is being a Mormon like?

Joshua James
Most members of the Mormon Church live normal lives just like anyone else with a job, family, and hobbies. But being a Mormon means that we are happy with who we are and what we do, despite the challenges of life. This happiness comes from our faith in Jesus Christ and is shown in our service to our family, fellow latter-saints and communities. Show more Show less
