Hi I'm James

I'm from Bountiful, Utah. I'm 21 years old and I'm serving in the Only True Mission in the Church - The OTM! (Oklahoma Tulsa)

About Me

I'm out here serving the Lord and I couldn't be happier. I graduated from Woods Cross High School in 2011, spent one year at the University of Utah in the Musical Theater Program, and have been serving as a missionary since March of 2013. I love it out here! I also love to sing, read, joke, win arguments. I have 7 brothers and sisters, whom I love dearly, and I was living with my grandparents before my mission. I love Mormons! I love being a Mormon, and even more right now, I love being an Elder.

Why I am a Mormon

My dad died when I was about 5 and my mother kicked me out of the house during high school. I had a little bit of a rough time after that and made some pretty big mistakes living with friends and on my own. The only way that I was able to dig myself out of that hole and find happiness was by recognizing the depth of my weakness and severity of my mistakes, and handing my life over to the Lord. Sounds like not a very good explanation but it's true. There is only one way to true, lasting happiness in this world, and the world to come; and that is through learning and living the gospel of Jesus Christ. By trying every day to follow His example and bring happiness to those around you. Believe it!

How I live my faith

Currently I am living my faith in the best way that I could be, serving a mission for the Church! I live my faith by being fanatically obedient to the rules of the mission and the commandments of our God. I work hard every day to invite others to come unto Christ and I've never been happier than I am right now. Church is true!
