Hi I'm James

I am a Mormon by conversion after searching for explanation of who we are and why we're here on the planet.

About Me

I am a farm boy at heart but took a very different path seeking financial security in this life. Spent 30 years in accounting roles (CPA, CFO, Controller etc.) and now simply quit to go serve a mission for our Lord. Falconry is my favorite avocation but have toyed with flying, horses, huunting dogs, hobby farming etc.. Who knows, maybe I'll get to fly a falcon again when my wife and I get back from our mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized at age 8 and was taught the doctrine but was not convinced until age 36 when I finally paid attention. After many years in an agnostic (I don't know) state, I set my foot on the path to knowledge of who we are and why we're here upon the earth. The Gospel of Jesus Christ as restored by Joseph Smith and continued by revelation to this day through living Prophets is the only and best explantion. Yes it takes faith, but in all my search for meaning nothing else makes sense. I have received answers to my prayers, and I cannot and will not deny it. I wish you all the best in your time here upon the earth and recommend that you too set your foot upon the path back to Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

My service to the Lord and my brothers and sisters here upon the earth is very important to me. It doesn't matter what I am called to do I try to enjoy it. Some one once told me that if I am not enjoying my calling (service to which I'm assigned), I'm not doing it right. I've had the most rewarding experiences serving in the following ways: helping people move, fixing broken stuff for people who can't do it themselves and can't afford to pay, being a scoutmaster, being in bishoprics, going on a trek (re-enactment of the Mormon pioneers) in Wyoming, going to clean-up Oklahoma City after the late 90's tornado, working in the cannery, etc. etc. etc.. I love to serve others.
