Hi I'm Jim

I am married & the father of 5 boys. I enjoy coaching my boys, taking RV trips & spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful wife and together we have 5 boys. We live in sunny Arizona. I enjoy spending time with my boys by coaching them in baseball or attending their various activities. I also enjoy spending time traveling with my family in our RV.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received an answer to several prayers about the truthfulness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. The restored gospel of Jesus Christ has provided a foundation for my life that I could never replace. The gospel has helped me gain a relationship with my Savior and has taught me principles that have brought me lasting happiness. As a young man I realized that the world can only provide temporary joy but the restored gospel of Jesus Christ has given me so much more than a temporary happiness. It has taught me that true joy comes when we make choices that our Heavenly Father is pleased with. I have read the Book of Mormon and know it is true. The Book of Mormon testifies of Christ and how He has made it possible to return to live with our Heavenly Father. I know the message taught in the restored gospel is true because of the way I feel when I live and serve within the church. The gospel has given me opportunities to serve others around me in many ways, which helps me feel closer to my Heavenly Father. I am grateful for the knowledge I have, that we have of a living prophet and apostles on the earth today. When I hear them speak or teach, I feel the spirit testify that the message they share is true and the principles that they teach will help me and my family grow closer together and help us to live together forever. To me, the opportunity to live with my wife, family and friends eternally provides me with a happiness that I am so grateful for. A lasting and eternal Happiness.

How I live my faith

The gospel has given me a way to show my Heavenly Father I am so grateful for what he has done for me by giving me opportunities to serve. I have had the opportunity to serve with the young men in our ward for several years. I enjoy being around great young men who desire to do what is right. Which in turn, helps me to try to do what is right. I also try to serve in the community by coaching my boys when they play sports. As a young man I was able to spend time working with my father every day on our family farm. Since I am not able to live and work with my boys on a farm. I make sure I spend time with them by coaching them and by participating in the boy scout organization. By coaching and serving in the scouts I have been able to meet a lot of great people. Serving with my boys and the young men in my ward has helped me gain relationships that I will always treasure. Its great to see how a young man is blessed when he is actively serving and participating in the gospel. I have learned that by serving others around you, helps me feel closer to Heavenly Father and by doing so I try show him how grateful I am for the service that has been given to me and my family.
