Hi I'm Jamie

I grew up in Australia, I play the piano, I go to uni and i'm a mormon!

About Me

I love playing the piano! I study music at uni and one day I would like to be a music teacher in a school. I'm diggin the sweet holidays school teachers get. I skateboarded for 5 years but now have sort of stopped because of injuries and im more focusing on my future at the moment.

Why I am a Mormon

I was walking down the street one day coming back from my mates place and two missionaries stopped me. They taught me a little bit about the gospel and asked if there was a time they could come round. hesitantly, I gave them my address. For the next few weeks I kept dodging them, but once I finally had a lesson with them, I liked it. Each week was a struggle for me though, I didn't really want to have them over, but they persisted. How greatful to them I am for their persistence. Since being baptised and making the decision to follow Jesus Christ my life had been a million times better than I ever thought it could be. I find more joy in life through living the way God wants me to live. At times it has been tough, and there has been a few moments where I have thought "is this what I really want to be apart of?" but those feelings are soon done away with when I remember how amazing my life actually is. It isn't east living the Gospel or following Jesus Christ, but it is worth it! It has brought me more happiness than anything else I have ever experienced, and I believe that anybody can feel this same joy in life by just putting in the effort and live it.

How I live my faith

I go to church every sunday, I study the scriptures daily and also like to study the words of the modern prophets because their teachings have helped me so much. I pray each morning and each night. I go to institute on wednesday nights to learn and then afterwards to hang out with my friends. Institute is a great place to meet new friends because everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I try to improve who I am each day.
