Hi I'm Jim

I served on submarines in the US Navy. Working on a smart grid. I play handball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I served 8 years in the US Navy on two submarines. I work in the energy sector. Each of my five children were born in a different state CA CT WA ID MN. I have served on my community's school board. I enjoy handball. Insanity and 5Ks with my wife keep me fit. I cheer for the Cleveland Indians and love my beautiful wife and family. Eleven grandchildren and growing.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up wondering which of the religions or philosophies of the world was true. After attending an LDS church and being taught, I eventually felt the Spirit strongly and knew why I was here on earth, where I came from, and where I may go when I leave this earth. Jesus Christ's love, atonement, and infinite mercy make it all possible!

How I live my faith

I treat every day as My Best Day So Far. I love people and know that we are all brothers and sisters. I love to share my faith with others.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Yes! What a blessing to be with my wife and family in the eternities. Show more Show less

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

I'm not perfect and because of the grace of our Heavenly Father, I can only return through faith and repentance and thus take advantage of the atonement of Jesus Christ. Sincere repentance brings peace and forgiveness and ultimately allows me to feel God's love for me. Show more Show less
