Hi I'm James

I'm married to a wonderful woman and have five fantastic children. I teach English to refugees. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love spending time with my family--swimming at the beach or watching DVDs. I love music and play the trumpet, euphonium and the ukulele. I like to travel and have lived in Idaho, Hawaii, Okinawa, Shizuoka and now Australia. I have the best job in the world because I get to help people as they start a new life here in Australia.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because it helps me be a better person. Christ was and is all about helping people. And that is what being one of His followers is all about. I get to work with people from all different cultural backgrounds and religious beliefs. The knowledge I have of our Heavenly Father, who loves us and cares about us individually regardless of what we do or believe, helps me have greater compassion and empathy. Our world isn't perfect, but by doing a little to help lift someone's burdens makes it a much better place and that much closer to heaven.

How I live my faith

We all have ways we can improve ourselves but sometimes we need help. Part of my responsibility in my branch is to help people get their lives in order so they can enjoy all the blessings life has to offer them, not only here and now, but also tomorrow and beyond.
