Hi I'm James

I'm from Salt Lake City. I'm a fun loving young college student. I love nature and exploring the outdoors. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am just totally a regular guy! I love hanging out with friends, video games movies. Just enjoy life. I really enjoy the outdoors, camping, fishing, hunting, you name it. My dad has passed his love of nature to me and I love to see all of the beautiful places this world has to offer, the more I see of the world the more I want to go out and explore. I am currently starting college and deciding on a career path for my future - I'm thinking about being a marine biologist or something along those lines. I have a great family with 5 younger siblings and two great parents and I love to spend time with them - watching movies, playing games, and going on family vacations.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by my parents. At a young age I learned for myself that the church was true. I love the church because being a member makes me truely happy and makes my life better. Like, everyone is always asking why I am a mormon? What compels me to live this way but it really isn't a sacrifice. This gospel, this lifestyle brings the most happiness I have ever experienced. It is the center of my life and with the peace and joy I have right now, why would I want to live another way or choose another religion? I know this is the church and the thing is everyone is invited to have the same experience I have had, to feel the joy that really comes as you are baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!

How I live my faith

My main role in the church has been to be a leader among the youth in my neighborhood. This has mainly involved planning fun activities to participate in or finding ways to do service in the community. This has especially involved serving an LDS mission. As a missionary, I am giving two years of my life to the Lord. He has done so much for me and I am out here spreading the word. It is seriously just the best learning and growing experience.
