Hi I'm James Kennedy

I'm from the AZ. I love life. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

To start off, I am a HUGE geek. Not a nerd. Believe me, there's a difference. Anyhoo, I love video games of all kinds, online, offline, multiplayer, singleplayer, it doesn't really matter so long as it's fun! I am particularly fond of PC games, specifically Starcraft and DOTA 2. I am also a rather competent chef, a lover of things that go boom, and a full time missionary. I really, really, really, REALLY loved video games. Like, 16 hours a day loved video games. My dream was to be a pro gamer, going to tournaments and stuff like that. That dream has since changed (for the better), thanks to my mission. My future goals now include an eternal family, as much college as I can get my hands on, doing worthwhile things, and helping as many people as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I was originally a Mormon because I was born into it. I am still a Mormon because it makes sense to me, logically. Not only this, but I have received a witness of the truth of it for myself, through reading the Book of Mormon, comparing it to the Bible, and thinking about it. After all this, praying to my Heavenly Father to please, tell me if what I was doing was right. Never in my life have I felt the way I did when I did that. That was good enough for me.

How I live my faith

Currently, I'm serving on a Mission, in Lansing Michigan. Essentially, the next two years of my life are not mine, but the Lord's. I am doing this willingly, for my own reasons, and not because it's what 19 year old Mormons do, and certainly not because someone told me to. I'm out here because this is where the Lord wants me to be, simple as that. I know that what I am doing will benefit me in ways that I cannot even imagine, temporally, spiritually, and eternally. In the grand scheme of things, two years is not a lot, and it's something that I am willing to give to the Lord, in part to show my gratitude for how abundantly he has blessed me in my life so far.
