Hi I'm James

I'm from England and Alabama. I love music, cats and Haiti. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Whats the goose. I grew up in England till I was 16 and moved to Alabama. I live there with my mamma, stepdad and younger brother. I play the piano, guitar and ukulele and love to sing and play music with my friends and family. I was in hardcore band growing up but i like to listen to anything that makes me happy. Other things that make me happy are doodling, brotherly love, cats doing funny things, Haitians, fried pickles and truth and righteousness.

Why I am a Mormon

A better question for me would be "why am I still a Mormon?". I grew up going to this church. My wonderful parents taught me that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and has a plan for me and i knew from their examples and the examples of my church leaders that it was something that they believed in and dedicated their lives to. But i didnt really know what to think. One day i decided to get real and started really doing the things i had been taught to do since i left the womb, like reading the scriptures, praying and coming to church to learn and grow. Immediately i felt more and more light enter my life. I started changing to allow more of it in because lets be honest it feels great. I know that Heavenly Father lives because he has answered my prayers. I know that Jesus Christ is the Saviour of the world because i have felt forgiveness for my weaknesses and strength in my trials. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God because I feel close to Him as I read and it leads me to do good and be better. I was a Mormon because my mum and dad are. Im still a Mormon because it turns out they were right all along.

How I live my faith

Right now I'm in Boston Massachussets as a missionary speaking Haitian Creole. Basically we search for those looking to strengthen their families, answer their questions about God, find peace and happiness and help them to do those things the best way we know how, which is by teaching them and helping them live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The best way to live our faith is by serving others. There are so many things we can do to brighten so many days. I love to pray for opportunities to help those I know and love and also those I dont know but still love. Heavenly Father often blesses me with unexpected chances to bless the lives of others. Nothing makes us happy like making others happy!
