Hi I'm James

I live in Arizona with my wife and 5 sons. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married to my beautiful wife for 17 years and we have 5 wonderful sons ranging in age from 16 to 5. I am originally from Washington D.C. and my wife is a native of Arizona. We met while attending Brigham Young University, and we moved to Gilbert after college. I own a business consulting firm, and have worked for large organizations in marketing. I love spending time in the outdoors with my family hunting and fishing. We have many family traditions, but our greatest memories come from spending time as a family in the mountains of Southern Utah. I am active in the community, I hold public office, and give much of my time serving in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the the Mormon Church because I believe that the fullness of the Gospel has once again been restored to the earth. I believe that the our Father in Heaven speaks to Prophets today, and we have a living Prophet who leads and guides this work. I believe the Bible and the Book of Mormon to be the word of God, as well as other published scripture that testify of Jesus Christ. Most importantly, I know that my Savior Jesus Christ lives. It is because of His sacrifice that we can become clean from our sins and transgressions and return to live with Him again. Our Father in Heaven knows and loves each one of us, and wants nothing more than to have us with Him again someday. I know this to be true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service in the Church, by trying my best to keep the commandments, and striving each day to become closer to my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. I try to live as Jesus did when he walked the earth, and strive to do this through good works and example.
