Hi I'm Jimmy

Im 21, I love the outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the kind of person that likes to be happy, and have fun with the people i care about. I love to help people and see them happy. I love swimming, especially at the beach. Its always been something i love doing. I love to be outdoors and enjoy the views up on mountain tops and hills. Hiking, swimming, and traveling will always be some of my favorite things to do. The best things in my life have been spent with my family and for reel cheep.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from a family of 10 kids, 5 Boys and 4 girls and me. I was raised as a mormon. Being raised in the church was good and helped me through my youth but I did not know it was true till i was much older. I remember one sunday when i was a kid and i didnt want to go to church. I told my parents i was sick and couldnt go so my mom said " ok get better , Bye" I was supprised by her answer. "cool!" i thought. I tried to find things to do and have fun but everyone was at church. Ive never been so desperate For anything in my life. It felt like a day went by before they all got back. And since then i never missed a sunday haha. I loved going to church but didnt understand or pay attention to the teachers. A day came that i realized i needed to ask if it was true. I was not sure what would come as an answer. My answer came quietly. It came by a feeling of peace that i was doing what was right. The answer comes to everyone differently. Mine came, and i know it came from God. I have been blessed to grow up in the church and im greatful for A big family whos been there for me. Because of my testimony, I know that God lives and That Jesus Christ is my savior and I am confident that I will always recieve help if im in need, even when i feel on my own. Im so thankful that i know how to find answers to all of my questions. Ive been so blessed and cant ever repay my heavenly father but i want to work every day to do good things to help others around me feel Gods love. I love the church and i know that the teachings are from Jesus Christ and that if we follow them just like the scriptures say, we will be blessed. Even more than we can ever immagine.

How I live my faith

I grew up and went to church in oregon, and now am a missionary for the church in Arizona. I am a representative now and testify daily that what i know is true. I never thought i could be a missionary. They were always so smart with the scriptures, so spiritual, so faithful. But that image changed when i went on a mission. I cant believe now that i thought like that. Some of the best people ive met have been because i came on a mission. I dont have to be perfect i just need to know what im doing is Gods work. This life is a test and its hard sometimes but its made for us to enjoy. I have so much fun every day out here. I talk to some crazy people on the streets every day. Its was super hard at first to get yelled at all the time by people who dont even care to get to know us, But none of that matters when we find someone struggling to find meaning in their life get answers to their prayers. I love this church and i try to share it with people every day.
