Hi I'm James

I'm from Utah, I make video games. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy making video games. I mostly enjoy programming the video game the most. I have high hopes and dreams of things I wish to do in my life. I hope to one day be an indie video game maker or to be apart of something important with programming. I am about to leave for my Mission where I will be serving in Mexico and all I can say is that I am very excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is true. It makes sense that it is true is because it is always growing, never shrinking. To paraphrase a saying I enjoy, I will do anything to receive these eternal rewards. The scriptures say that you can receive eternal joy, if I am going to be in heaven for eternity I would like to have joy while I am there. I know that there is a God and that he answers our prayers because I had a dog who died, my family decided to do a prayer to bring this dog back to us, and few minutes later, my dog came back to life and she lived for a good couple more years. I know that we have prophets today and that they get counsel from Jesus Christ. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I enjoy being apart of the community and I feel that going to church allows you to see your neighbors and learn more about the people around and lets you really see what someone might need. I remember helping a lot of people move their furniture or helping someone plant their garden. I feel that being a Mormon allows you to know of what people need and allows you to serve them.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Quoting of a member of the Quorum of the 12, Elder Russell M. Nelson, "Could an explosion in a printing shop produce a dictionary?” (http://www.lds.org/general-conference/2012/04/thanks-be-to-god?lang=eng) What Elder Nelson is referring to is that some people say that after the big bang everything just randomly fell into place to make it so that we are here today. It makes sense that there would have to be a God to put us here. I know there is a God. One of the ways you can find out on your own is to pray to Him. You just put yourself in a humble position, normally with your head down and eyes closed, and you address that you are talking to our heavenly father, a dear Lord normally works. Then you can ask him any questions and He will tell you, "5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed." (http://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/james/1.5-6?lang=eng#4) Then you close your prayer by saying "In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen." The Lord doesn't always answer prayers right then and there, He works in mysterious ways, but the most common way of knowing the truth is, "if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you;" (http://www.lds.org/scriptures/dc-testament/dc/9.8-9?lang=eng#7) I know there is a god. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Show more Show less
