Hi I'm Jim

I'm a Mormon. Live in Irvine California. My wife and I enjoy being with our family. Especially enjoy grandchildren.

About Me

I am a husband, dad and grandpa. I enjoy being with family. I am a marketing analyst for an e-invoicing company here in Orange County. Enjoy all types of music and like taking long walks with my wife on the beach. We love watching good movies and also reading good books.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon due to several reasons. I was able to serve a 2 year mission for the church when I was 19 years old in Australia. It was an experience that has helped to keep my testimony burning through out my life. At a very young age I was able to receive a testimony of Jesus Christ and of the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try and live my religion in many ways. My wife and I like to attend the Temple at least once a month. We find peace and solace there. It is a place to be with your spouse and renew our temple and marriage covenants that we made when we got. married. I am involved doing genealogy and gathering names from the churches web site new.familysearch.org to do Temple work for my family members who have passed on.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

My wife and I try to attend the temple once a month. The purpose of the Temple is to seal families together. They have been established for that very purpose. It is through this sealing power that we are again able to be reunited with our families and with God. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

We have our struggles and ups and downs just like anyone else. It is nice to go to the temple and feel peace. Monthly or every few weeks my wife and I enjoy that sweet feeling of peace and calm when we are able to attend the temple. We are not free from the problems of this world. With a lot of prayers and trying to keep a positive attitude about life we have been able to enjoy life on this earth. Show more Show less
