Hi I'm James

I'm a Mormon, and have been my entire life.

About Me

I work in IT at a marketing agency, and have been at the same company for over ten years. After several years trying, and a number of failed adoption attempts, my wife and I are expecting our first child. We are so excited, we can hardly wait! I have experience in radio broadcasting, and as a DJ for dances, weddings, parties, etc.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon, but in my late teen years chose to follow my own path. When I was 22, I had an experience that made me stop and think about what should be important in my life, and I realized that the things I had been taught as a kid could possibly be true...and if they were true, I deserved to know. So I began reading the Book of Mormon in a way I never had before. But even more importantly, I poured my heart out to my Father in Heaven. I spoke to Him as if He were there in front of me and we were having a conversation. I felt things I had never felt before, and I had a desire to change my life. It didn't happen overnight, but I soon came to realize that what I had learned as a child was indeed true...that I am a child of God, and that Jesus Christ is my Savior.

How I live my faith

I have helped out in the church in every way I am able, and every way I'm asked. I spent a number of years teaching the adult Sunday School class. Recently, I have worked with the children in the church, from ages 18 months to 12 years old, as their music leader. I love seeing how happy the kids get as they learn music that teaches them about the gospel of Jesus Christ. A couple of years ago, I worked with a large number of church members in my area to put on a stage performance to celebrate the community. It involved the teenage church members, as well as a number of other adults and children in supporting roles. It was a lot of fun, and a great learning experience.
