Hi I'm Jimi

I love to run, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a marathon runner. My goal in life is to run under four minutes in the mile. I love the idea of competing against myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I had many questions about life that I knew only God could answer. I grew up attending church regularly each Sunday. I was taught much about the gospel, but at the time I didn't have a full interest in spiritual things. I sought for happiness in sports, or other things that were good, but that would not bring me lasting happiness. As time continued events in my life caused me to wonder. I was taught that there was a God, but I did not know for myself. I heard several times people say that they knew the Book of Mormon to be true. I was taught some of the stories, but I had never read the book. It was just another book on the shelf. It had no meaning or value in my life at this time. I decided to read it cover to cover, and to test the prophet Moroni's promise that, "When ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost, ye may know the truth of all things." I hadn't even finished the Book of Mormon before I knew it was true. I knew all at once that this is Christ's true church. I was placed at the begining of a path that would lead me to God. Reading the Book of Mormon filled me with a happiness that I before didn't know existed. The Book of Mormon is true. It's purpose is to testify of Jesus Christ as our Savior and Reedemer.

How I live my faith

I am a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I strive daily to obey God's will, and to banish my own will. Also to strive to adhere to the words of God's Prophet and Apostles on the earth today.
