Hi I'm James

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a wonderful wife and two young daughters. I have an undergraduate degree in Finance, and I am working on my MBA. I am very involved with scouting and currently serve as a scoutmaster for my local troop. I love the outdoors, including camping, hiking, and especially waterskiing. My favorite way to spend my time, however, is with my girls.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that the Book of Mormon is true, and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I have had many years to study and ponder the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as many other churches, and the more I learn, the stronger my testimony becomes that this is God's church, restored to the earth. I have read the Book of Mormon many times, and each time, God reveals new insights to me. I am very grateful for the church and all of its teachings. It provides me guidance for my life that keeps me happy and fulfilled.

How I live my faith

I am very active in the church and currently work regularly with the youth. I'm a leader over the 12 and 13 year-old boys, which keeps me always on my toes. I work very hard to not only help them to have a fun time, but also to help them develop their own testimonies of Jesus Christ. At their age, there are so many choices and paths placed before them, and it's so important to help them understand which choices will lead to the greatest happiness in their lives. I love my position with the youth and feel that the Lord has blessed me greatly through my service to them.
