Hi I'm James

I love the outdoors and jogging, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a lovely wife and three beautiful children. I love spending time in the outdoors. I would consider myself an 'amateur' scientist because I love learning about...everything.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, during those years I came to know that God loves me and knows who I am. I've come to understand that he has a plan specifically for me. I believe that the teachings of Jesus Christ help us to become better people and help us overcome the challenges that life throws at us.

How I live my faith

I think the most important thing I can do is to teach and raise my children correctly. I also serve my ward by keeping track of records; baptisms, marriages, births, etc. Not the most glorious job, but I still feel it's very important.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

I think one important reason we need to take care of our bodies is so we can live long enough to have all the experiences our Heavenly Father wants to give us. I think he has planned specific experiences for each one of us, and if we aren't healthy enough to enjoy them, or don't live long enough to have them then we are compromising the quality of our own lives, and sometimes the lives of those around us. We should be careful with what we eat and drink and avoid things that would harm our bodies. Show more Show less
