Hi I'm James

I grew up in Australia. I live in Utah now. I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 and just about to go on a mission returning to Australia where I was born. I love music, I play the drums and guitar and I love every second I spend playing music.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger, I couldn't even tell you why I was a Mormon. It was what was expected of me. But in my faith's most basic form, I am a Mormon because I'm not comfortable anywhere else. I get a certain sense of homesickness as if the church is home and I've run away with the circus. The church comforts me, it lets me know that there is a life here after, it lets me know that I have a father in heaven who is looking out for me and preparing me through trials to face the life ahead of me. I am Mormon because being Mormon is the only thing that leaves no door closed. It makes me feel complete.

How I live my faith

With my preparation to go on a mission I ended up having to work every other Sunday. As a result I bacame "less active" in church activities. But I managed to help explain the LDS religion to many non members and help them understand Mormon members as people.
