Hi I'm Jim
Being Mormon has helped me develop faith and testimony in Jesus Christ among many, many other things.
I was raised in a devoted Christian home with great parents and a wonderful sister. When we visited Salt Lake City one summer, my family was awestruck with the feelings we felt as we toured the visitor's center. Knowing that the feelings we had were more than a transitory event, we invited the missionaries into our home. Some 6 months later we were baptized and confirmed. I have since shared beliefs with people in a foreign land, received a college education, worked on challenging jobs, and married the girl of my dreams. We have 3 wonderful children and enjoy the blessings of the gospel everyday.
Why I am a Mormon
Being a Mormon fulfills my lifetime quest to make a difference. As President and Prophet David O. McKay said, "the purpose of the gospel of Jesus Christ is to help bad men become good, and good men to become better!"
How I live my faith
I don't do enough. There are daily opportunities to reach out to others and I try to make a difference and contribute to my family and the lives of those around me. I try to help others however I can - like the many other great people in our city. Everyday I work on this invitation by President Monson, "Rather than being judgmental and critical of others, may we have the pure love of Christ for our fellow travelers in this journey through life."
