Hi I'm James or Jim

I’m a Mormon and I have lived the gospel of Jesus Christ. My life has been forever changed for the better.

About Me

I am a retired dentist who taught Dental Hygiene for 33 years while maintaining a dental practice for friends and family. I had an internship with the US Public Health Service and served among the Navajo an Sioux Native Americans and made many friends among these wonderful people. I now write religious texts in the hopes that my experiences as a practicing Christian may be of help to those struggling with the trials and challenges of modern life. I have played the organ at Church for nearly 50 years and now play many of my own compositions. I sing in a quintet with four other young men. While on the Native American reservations, I painted portraits of the children using the artistic skills I learned in dental school. I exercise every day and am sound and fit for one my age.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a grateful Latter-day Saint because I have learned first hand that if you have faith sufficient to seek repentance and baptism, you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, a member of the Godhead, to be a constant companion as you face the trials, disappointments, and challenges of life and have personal access to the visions, ministering angels, revelation, and personal assistance in times of need. The same that were common among the faithful as recorded in the Bible and the Book of Mormom--A Second Witness of Jesus Christ. I have personal knowledge and experience that confirms to me that God loves all His children and will do for all what He has done for all those that enter His earthly kingdom through baptism and keep His commandments and serve Him in righteousness. The gospel, as taught by Adam, Moses, Abraham, Isaac, and Jesus Christ is the same gospel the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints proclaims to the world. I am able to experience in my own life many of the great things experienced by those anciently who followed the Lord's example and lived His teachings.

How I live my faith

I live my life in accordance with the faith of my Great grandfather, who had to choose between his family and the Mormon faith and he knew what he had to do and left home with his wife and two children to endure the trials and hardships thrust upon those who became known as Mormon Pioneers. Though he endured much hardship, his faith was only strengthened as he experienced both protection and the good life that is part of Mormon society when it is based upon faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith has been my hero since I was a young boy and I have discovered the truth of his statement when he declared to the Saints that apostles and prophets will experienced no spiritual powers but what are available to all the faithful and obedient Saints of God; for God is truly no respector of persons.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

James or Jim
The present prophet of God possesses all the privileges, keys, and powers possessed by any true prophet that ever lived upon this earth. Modern prophets can speak to all the world without interruption via satellite and the Internet and advise not only the saints of God, but all that will listen, about the preparations that must be accomplished that we might avoid some of the difficulties that have come upon the people of the world and those calamities that are yet to come. Huge printing facilities are loctaed at strategic places around the world that the words of the prophets and apostles may be available to all people in nearly one hundred languages, that those seeking to will of the Lord, might have access to these modern prophetic teachings in advance of both spiritual and temporal times of need. Jesus taught that any true religion must be prepared to care for those who are in need of both temporal and spiritual help. Today Latter-day Saints across the world believe that we are to love our neighbors as ourselves and serve them in righteousness. These teachings come because we again have apostles and prophets upon the earth. Show more Show less
