Hi I'm Jim DeMordaunt

I have never lived in 1 place for more than 4 years. I did Crew Rowing in Ohio. I'm a Sophomore at BYU. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My Dad was in the Air Force, So we moved a lot. I'm a huge Star Wars fan. I like woodworking, Ultimate Frisbee, Lord of the Rings, hiking, Harry Potter, Pokemon, long car trips, and cold weather. I am a College student planning on majoring in history or economics.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and found out for myself that it is true. This knowledge did not come all at once. It took a lot of time reading in the Book of Mormon, going to church, and praying to know of the truth of the Book of Mormon. To know if the church is true first you have to find out if the Book of Mormon is true. This is the Keystone of our religion. Everything hinges on whether the Book of Mormon is the word of God. When I found this out I knew that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that the Church of Jesus Christ was restored to the Earth as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that the fullness of the Gospel has been restored to the Earth. I have learned this by taking the promise that a prophet in the Book of Mormon made. "Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts. And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things." -Moroni 10:3-5

How I live my faith

Jesus Christ and his gospel have been a very big part of my life. I work to help others learn of him. I follow his Commandments and do my best to follow the example he set for us.
