Hi I'm James

I'm from Orlando, Florida. I play the piano, the organ, and video games and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a technical support analyst (aka Helpdesk) during the day and dragon slayer by night! I love to role play and play MMO games with friends throughout the world. I also find myself playing the piano (musical theater is a passion of mine) as well as the organ for church services.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. Both of my parents were converts into the church while my dad was serving in the air force. My mom would babysit for another family that were members of the church. While babysitting my mom offered the young boy some tea - it which he responded no that it was against his religion. This intrigued my mom and one thing lead to another and both my parents got baptized into the church. I've felt the love of God in my life and there is no other place I would rather be. I've visited other churches in my youth with some friends but there was always something different and special that I felt at my church. We may not have the fancy light shows and full electric bands - but the spiritual feeling is so much more intense and memorable.

How I live my faith

As stated before I play the organ for my ward every Sunday. I always love hearing others singing to my music (even if they are out of tune sometimes ::hehehe::) I am also the ward clerk for our unit. I am responsible for ensuring the records for baptisms, ordinations and callings in my ward are kept accurately. It's a fantastic opportunity to learn about organization skills and being able to serve others.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

We love and study the Bible just as much as we do the Book of Mormon as it includes many doctrine, stories and testimonies of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon will never replace the Bible, but instead adds to it and testifies as another witness of Jesus Christ by other men of God through their trials and faith. Think of it as a sequel to the Bible or a spin off if you will - it shares the same story line and gives the same message just with different people. Show more Show less
