Hi I'm James
I am a newly married anatomy nerd who loves to laugh. I think humans and the human body are amazing. I'm a Mormon.
I have an amazing wife, a great dad, a wonderful mom, an awesome sister, a cool brother, and fantastic in-laws. I am a dog lover and have a yellow lab named Belle. I am twenty-two and currently going to college studying Physiology and Developmental Biology. I love learning about the human body and just how wonderful it is to be human. One day I hope to go to medical school. Also, I love to read, and am a big Harry Potter fan.
Why I am a Mormon
Ever since I was a little boy, I have always found happiness in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The truths taught simply feel right. One of the songs we sang as children in the church is "I am a child of God" the thought that I am a child of God causes something to stir within me and I feel like saying "yes, yes that is true" (sometimes that happens a lot with different teachings in the church for me). I truly have a Heavenly Father who made this world for us. I feel close to him during prayer. When I read The Book of Mormon as a teenager I felt less overwhelmed in all aspects of my life, pieces began to fit into place, and I knew that God was real. I prayed to Him to ask if The Book of Mormon was true, as well as the Church. A simple, yet powerful, sense of peace came over me, and I knew it was good and true (the same thing happens now as I continually read the scriptures). It makes profound sense to me that if Heavenly Father called prophets anciently he would do so today. I am Mormon because of my many witnesses and experiences that have helped me to understand and know that The Church is quite literally the Church of Jesus Christ. His sacrifice for my sins is so overwhelming and wonderful. I am grateful to be a part of His Church.
How I live my faith
I live my faith through who I am. I know I am a Son of God with a divine heritage. As such I try to act as Christ would have me act, and follow His example.
