Hi I'm Jim

I'm a Mormon. I’m a family man, a sports nut and a CPA…and I eat sugar frosted flakes.

About Me

Foremost, I have 3 rockin’ sons, 2 sweet daughters-in law, 2 heart-melting grandkids, and a wife extraordinaire whose alto voice from heaven soothes any soul. I’m a financial professional described by others as “a CPA with a personality”. I enjoy sports, good music, the great outdoors and sharing in good clean fun. I find the chateaux of France both majestic and fascinating, I adore clever humor and I appreciate that my family laughs, even when I’m not that funny! Sometimes a bit of an overgrown kid, I can still play a mean air guitar and revel in tossing a sweet Frisbee.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints strengthens my family and me personally in so many ways. As we each strive to live by values and principles based upon the gospel of Jesus Christ, we experience the source of peace and happiness that is long-lasting, not fleeting. I am able to better understand and appreciate what is truly important in this life and to sort through the many pitfalls and mirages of the world we live in. I gratefully accept the miracle of Jesus Christ’s atoning sacrifice which offers every willing soul the opportunity to overcome mistakes and to find our way.

How I live my faith

Though I’m far from perfect, I strive daily to live my life by following the example of the Savior who exemplifies principles like kindness, love, empathy, integrity, obedience, and humility. Following the gospel adds richness to my life. I find it liberating, not restrictive, as it most assuredly offers freedom from the sometimes devastating consequences of bad choices and sin. I am most humbled in how I have been called to serve Him. I currently preside over a 450 member congregation and regularly teach, interview, and engage in activities with over 50 youth.
