Hi I'm Jamie

I am a husband. I am a paralegal-administrative assistant. I love technology. I love to do genealogy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 37 and married to my lovely wife of 11 years. I am a paralegal at a local Public Defender's office. I love to read, surf the web and meet new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the church and didn't really become actively involved until my teenage years. However, during my teenage years is when questions that I had were really starting to get answered and it didn't matter what other church I went to, they just didn't fill my cup like this church did. This is the church that truly has the answers to life's question that we all tend to ask at some point in our lives.

How I live my faith

I am amazed at how the teachings really do affect a person's life. As I obediently and faithfully follow the teachings, I do feel the blessings from following those teachings. I also feel my Savior's love for me. As I study the scriptures, pray with my wife, and say my personal prayers, and etc, it all comes together. I know that some obstacles in life will not always be easy; however, I know that I am not alone in hurdling through those obstacles. One of the ways that I serve in my local congregation is I am their website administrator. I keep up with making sure that any activities are posted and announced, and since each member is asked to serve in different callings, I am asked to make sure that information is up-to-date on the website as well.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jamie
The Book of Mormon is not just a book. It is what it says it is. It is another testament of Jesus Christ. In the book, it contains a history of people who migrated from Jerusalem to the Americas. In this history, it also contains their experiences of miracles that were encompassed about. It also contains teachings that help us to come closer to Jesus Christ. If I may share one excerpt from it, it would be 2nd Nephi 25: 23 and 26 which reads: 23 For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do. 26 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins. When I read from its pages, I feel closer to my Heavenly Father and the Savior, Jesus Christ. One other scripture I would like to share with you from 2nd Corinthians 13:1 which Paul writes to the saints in Corinth, “In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.” I do believe that the Book of Mormon is another witness of Jesus Christ and that it truly does testify of Him and His divinity.
