Hi I'm Zackery James

I've moved around a lot growing up. I love graphic design.

About Me

I'm a graphic design student at college. I love everything to do with design, whether it be architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial and even fashion. I served a mission in the Tuxtla Gutierrez, Mexico area, which consists of Chiapas, Tabasco, Campeche and Oaxaca. I love soccer, running, movies, reading, visual arts in general.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to stay faithful because I want to be happy...forever, and with my family. Some people think that following the commandments and living by high standards causes a lot of lost experiences or missed fun. Really, by following the commandments and what modern prophets have taught it helps us achieve true happiness. Every time I participate in activities, and share my testimony, or hear other testimonies or lessons I feel immense joy. The blessings are endless and I know God knows me personally. Thats one reason the Book of Mormon was given us, because God loves us and wants the best. By reading it I have come to know the Savior more closely and feel that its the word of God and also that Joseph Smith was called of God to restore Christ's church in this day. I've prayed and felt this is true. Thats why I am a member.

How I live my faith

Right now I'm a home teacher, and I really enjoy visiting members to help them in what they need and being their friends. I attend church every sunday and was previously serving as an assistant clerk to the leader of the ward, taking care of new member records and donations.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Zackery James
For me, that best way I have come to know my Father in Heaven is through obedience to His commandments and repenting when I make mistakes. If we try to emulate the Savior's life, we become clean through Christ's atonement and are more able to feel our Father's influence through revelation, impressions, inspiration. When we begin to feel this we realize how personally the Lord knows us. Especially through prayer I have been able to express myself to Him in all sincerity and have received specific answers to my prayers in countless occasions. Doing these things have really helped me become closer to Him, as well as scripture study and church participation. Show more Show less
