Hi I'm James

I'm a husband, father of four, grandfather of 7. I love college football ( Go Sooners!!) and fishing and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I received a Bachelors degree from the University of Oklahoma and a Master degree from the University of Colorado. I work in the human resources field and love helping people. I have a family that includes two daughters and two sons. I have been blessed with seven grandchildren with another on the way. My wife and I have had the opportunity to live in several different states in the US. It has been a great experience to see so much of this great country.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is such a blessing in my life. The church teaches that this live is just one step in our eternal progression. Some day after this life we will have the opportunity to return to a loving Heavenly Father. This knowledge provide so much peace of mind in a world that is filled with so many challenges. The church also provides many opportunities to serve our fellow man. I believe that we were placed here on the earth to serve our Heavenly Father by being of service to his other children. What a great blessing it is to help others.

How I live my faith

As a disciple of Christ I try to follow his example. The church teaches us to live Christ like priniciples. Our home is the foundation of our lives. We strive to be honest and to have charity with everyone. A bing part of my life is to service God and his children. I do this by actively be a part of my local ward and helping other members. I also volunteer to participate in many other community activities that allow me to be of service to those outside the church.
