Hi I'm James Schmidt

I am the youngest of 9 children. I love playing paino and singing. I love to run and swim. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have been playing piano since I was five so i have grew up in music all my life. I started swimming when I was five too and have had jobs as a lifeguard in various places. In High School I did choir and cross country which were my favorite things to do. I attend BYU where I chose a biology major and will hopefully become a vet someday if that's what the Lord intends for me. At BYU I was in the Mens Chorus ther directed by Sister Rosalind Hall who is such a wonderful person. I am currently on a mission for the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but my testimony was never strengthened so much in the church till I attended BYU and really came to love the people in the church who had the same standards as me. I truly gained a testimony for myself that the Book of Mormon is a true testament of Christ, and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God who translated this wonderful book that has not only blessed my life but blesses the life of my whole family. I love my family and the fac that all of us can be together for eternity because I would honestly be nothing without each and everyone of them.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving a mission for the church so thats my bigest calling yet in my years of being a memeber. I have been a Sunday School teacher, which I loved because It really helped me to understand doctrine of the church. I did home teaching at BYU and i never thought I would like as much as I did being able to serve the members of my ward.
