Hi I'm Jimmy

I am a contractor, a husband, a father, a grandpa. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a family of seven children with a father and mother that loved their children. My dad and one of my sisters have gone on. My mother is 83 now. I love my parents and brothers and sisters and see them often. During high school I met my sweetheart and after graduating I married her.We have always lived in Georgetown and have four great children, all out on their own with families and are members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints also. My work as a building contractor takes me all over our county and I meet and work for a lot of wonderful people. Reworking their houses is such great fun. They make it a home. I am involved in the community by coaching county basketball ages 9 and 10years old and have done so for aver 30 years. I have also coached girls softball and am at present actively working in the booster club for the betterment of our community and childrens future and helping them to become well rounded by being with other young people with a goal to accomplish something and be proud of themselves.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife introduced me to the church. I listened to several missionaries and then I said, "I'm hooked." I cannot begin to say how wonderful The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is. The teachings and the plan of salvation cover where I came from, why I am here and where I'm going. But it's up to me and how I live each day to prove myself worthy to one day be in our Heavenly Father's presence.

How I live my faith

When I first started being taught I was listening but didn't do anything about it. Slowly and through several sets of missionaries I finaly joined through the efforts of a sweet missionary couple and the members of the Georgetown Branch. The missionaries worked with me and then one day they asked me to be baptized. At the time I smoked a little. The Elder asked me if since I was going to be baptized the next day maybe I should stop smoking. So I put them down and never picked them up again. Along the way church leaders and church members and great friends in Christ have helped me stay on the right path, reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon regularly, praying daily, being active by serving in callings in the church, paying tithing(10% of gross), going to the temple and working with our young missionaries keeps me on the path. I feel so strongly about this the true plan of salvation that I can't contain myself. I am so grateful that I met my wife and that she said lets go the the church that I know is true. We have raised our children in it and know it is true with all our being.
