Hi I'm Jim

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a mormon since 2008. My wife and I were baptized on the same day and my life has changed for the better with the knowlege of Christ. I am an electrician, and have owned my business for 25 years. I love to hike and go white water rafting.

Why I am a Mormon

I was a Catholic for most of my life. My parents brought me to church every Sunday, and as I grew older I felt as though I needed more knowledge of Christ. My sister and her husband joined The Mormon religion about 10 years before me, then my mother 5 years after that. My wife and I were searching for the truth and attended various churches. We finally allowed the missionaries to come into our home and teach us lessons from the Book of Mormon. The fact that this church is modeled after Jesus Christ and his apostles made so much sense to me I could not wait any longer to join. Our lives have changed so much. We now look at our neighbors, friends, and family members with love and a willingness to help them with anything they need and to share this knowledge we have gained with anyone who wants to listen. The Atonement of Christ and the ability for us to repent of our sins and be forgiven gives us a fresh start every time we receive the sacrament and renew our sacred covenants we made with our father in heaven when we were baptised. The only regret I have now is not learning about this earlier in my life when our son was young.

How I live my faith

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a very big part of my life. Since joining the church, I find it very easy and natural to try to help out with various projects in the church and out in the community. I have developed a love of humanity which gives me strength and confidence in everything I do. As one of the leaders in our branch, we help out with new members moving into the area, and helping others move out by coordinating the move and having enough help on hand to run smoothly. Our main concern is the well being of our members and their families. Home teaching is way of getting to know and gain the trust of members and to let them know that you are there to help when needed. Every month you visit a member and their family and leave them with some uplifting messages depending on there needs.
