Hi I'm James Tingey

I love my family, I love basketball, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Salt Lake City with my wife Mikala. I grew up in Salt Lake City with my parents, 2 brothers, and 1 sister. I currently attend the University of Utah and I am majoring in Spanish with the hope of attending Physical Therapy school after I graduate. I love playing sports and being active, especially with my wife. I also love to watch sports, especially basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace and joy I feel when I follow Jesus Christ. Being a member of the restored church of Jesus Christ and following its teachings has blessed me in more ways than I ever thought possible. It has blessed me to have been able to marry an amazing women and know that we can be together forever as we follow Jesus Christ. It has blessed to become a better person and know I can be strengthened and forgiven of things I have done wrong. It has blessed me to be a better student and have a better vision of what I want in the future. I know that Heavenly Father wants us to be happy and that because of His son Jesus Christ we can all be happy and return to live with them as we choose to follow them.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the small and simple things everyday and making the gospel of Jesus Christ the center of my life and family. Praying to my Heavenly Father and reading scriptures everyday individually and with my wife along with keeping the sabbath day holy has been a tremendous blessing to me and my family and brings great peace and happiness to us and allows us to feel the Holy Ghost in our daily lives.
