Hi I'm James

I am a movie enthusiast, and love being outside and active.I started serving at 18, and I`m a missionary for Jesus Christ.

About Me

My name is James. I am 18 years old and grew up with a family on farm land. I am very fun to be around because I like to be outside. I enjoy sports such as basketball, tennis, volleyball, and motorcycling. When I ride my motorcycle I like to go to Moab with my family. I have done a semester of college through BYU-Idaho, and plan to attend on campus soon. One of my hobbies that I really enjoy is movies. I plan to eventually pursue a career in movies both acting, and directing.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to follow the example of Jesus Christ becasue when I do it brings me happiness. I have felt the power of the Spirit and the power of the Atonement in my life. I have also made many friends in the Gospel and in the church and enjoy that we have common Spirits. I know that through the power of the Spirit and Atonement that we can feel happy and that we have a purpose in life. I know that my Redeemer lives, and that he died for me. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God, and that he translated the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have lived my faith by serving in many groups of people my same age. I have helped organize activities and served in many groups of the church. I also show how I live my faith by serving a mission. I want to bring others closer to Christ so they feel happy and that people might find that missing piece to their lives. Another way I stay strong in the Gospel is reading scriptures. I firmly believe that each of us needs to stay connected with God. And I have found that reading my scriptures helps me keep my relationship with Him strong no matter what. If God sent us here on earth, he wants to know how we are doing and he has provided the means for us to stay close with him. We have the scriptures and prayer. Because when we are close to God, everything works out and that`s how we can enjoy life.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Today our Prophet is Thomas S. Monson. We believe that he recieves personal revelation from God and leads us in these Latter Days. We can look up to President Monson as the President of the Church, and follow his counsel that he gives to us in Genearl Conference every six months. Show more Show less
