Hi I'm James

I grew up in Pocatello, Idaho. I'm an author, I'm a performer, I'm a baller, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving as a missionary in the Arkansas Little Rock mission. I love writing, I'm working on a book which I hope will be published some day. I love to perform- anything from public speaking to dancing to musicals- and I love playing basketball, especially with my brothers. I am a middle child in a family of 8, and I am living and loving life.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a family of members, but that's not why I'm a Mormon. In high school I came to the determination that I would find out for myself, and either know of its truthfulness or reject it completely. Well, here I am.

How I live my faith

I'm serving a full time mission, and loving every second of it.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

I preach the gospel because I want to. Yes, it's a commandment to share the gospel of Christ, and yes it brings people happiness and joy, but those are all products of sharing it. I share it because it's the only thing I want to do, the only real way to help people, make lives better, and in essence change the world. Show more Show less
