Hi I'm Jim

I'm a Mormon. I'm a happy person because I put my faith in God and let Him help me carry my burdens.

About Me

I joined the LDS Church when I was 18 years old. I'm the only one of my family to join and it caused quite a stir when I became a Mormon. I'm now happily married and enjoy my children and grandchildren. I'm retired after 35 years as an educator, and my wife and I have served the Church in China and Germany. I love to read, play chess, sing and travel. I also love my work in the Church helping the unemployed find work. I'm a Navy veteran and a patriot.

Why I am a Mormon

I knew I had to join the Church since the Mormons had the answers to all the questions my pastor said were unknowns or the mysteries of God. The Holy Ghost testified to the truth of the Book of Mormon, the true nature of the Godhead, the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Joseph Smith and all the other beautiful teachings of former and latter-day prophets. I knew it was all true and that God had a wonderful life awaiting me.

How I live my faith

I practice being a Latter-Day Saint (Mormon) by following the counsel of the living prophet, by serving how and where God asks, and by trying to love all other people unconditionally.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

I served a mission in Germany. I did this because our Heavely Father has asked us to share the message of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ with all his children across the planet. This message needs to be shared because it is the only sure way to happiness in this life and it is the way to return to God after we die. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Study, decide and pray for confirmation. Begin with the Book of Mormon. It has the clearest summary of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

The missionaries will seek to guide you to answers to the spiritual questions that you have, and in so doing will introduce you to the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
