Hi I'm James

I love to build things. I am an avid paintball player, and I love to be outside. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sophomore chemical engineering student. I love to work with my hands and build things. I was involved in building a Solar car and an electric Geo in high school. This made helped me develop my love for building and designing. It also helped guide me to the energy field. I hope to get out of school and jump right in the field as a petroleum engineer. Originally from South Florida, I love the beach and warm weather' In High School, I enjoyed Lacrosse, Hockey, and Soccer. I love being outdoors. I also am an avid paintball player.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have found out for myself that it is true. No one on this earth convinced me or told me to be LDS. I came to know for myself that this is Christ's true church on the earth. God has given me my answer, and reaches out to all his children. He lives and loves us. He wants us to return to live with Him. That is why I am a Mormon; I want to return to live with him too. This Gospel has blessed my life more then anything else in the world. It brings peace, heals heartache, gives direction. I know, without a doubt, that is is Christ's Gospel, as it was set up when he was here. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet who restored the church, not founded it. The founding was done by Christ. This is his church, and I know he stands at the head. I am a Mormon because I follow Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example: by helping others to the best of my ability. I work to better myself everyday, and repent and ask for forgiveness when necessary. I strive to be a christ-like individual. I know that I can live with my family again after this life, and strive to do my best. Living my faith is a daily accomplishment. Faith is not something we exercise on Sunday and forget about the rest of the week. It is how we live our lives, day in and day out. By doing this, I know I come closer to my Heavenly Father. I appreciate more the gift that Christ has given me.
