Hi I'm James

I was born and raised in Utah. I am a student at UVU. I love music and programming computers, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Utah as a student, studying Computer Science and I love it. One of my favorite things to do is program computers. I used to direct spaceship simulations at the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center but now my job is doing search engine optimization. I love music and playing the violin.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Gospel. You could say that my family was a big reason why I chose to be a member of this church, but I know for myself that it is true! I love knowing where I came from before I was on the Earth and I know my purpose here, as well as where I will go after I die. This Plan helps me feel important. I have a purpose. I am here to become a better person and learn as I go through trials an make mistakes. I also love knowing that I am never alone. Anytime I feel like I need help, I know that I can pray to my Heavenly Father and he will help me. I have prayed about important things and small things and I know that his influence is in my life. I have felt the Spirit guide me through hard times. There are so many amazing things about this church and I have prayed to know that it is the true church on the Earth today!

How I live my faith

I currently attend a ward for young single adults in my area in the church. I am trying to live my faith by preparing myself to serve as a Missionary in the Philippines. There are a lot of amazing Gospel doctrine books and manuals to study to help me as I learn how to teach other people what I know to be true. There were missionaries in the Book of Mormon that I can even learn from! I am excited for this opportunity to serve my Father in Heaven by inviting others to come unto Christ.
