Hi I'm James

I am a husband and father. I work with computers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have six children, and they are wonderful. The two older children are out of the house; the rest of the family lives in Maryland. I would like to live in the country, but I live in the suburbs. I build computer software for a living. I would like to slow down, but I am pretty busy. I have been richly blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in God, and I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus is our Savior and Redeemer, and He is our only hope to make it back to our heavenly home. Thankfully, the gospel has been fully restored in these last days, and we now better understand the truths found in the Bible. I choose to be a member of the church because I have felt the Holy Spirit witness to me of the truths taught. It has happened over and over again. This understanding from the Spirit helps me get through each day. It also provides me hope that through the Lord's grace and mercy my family can be together again after we die.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to follow Jesus and trying to keep His commandments. When I make mistakes, I try to repent quickly and do better in the future. Part of my faith in Christ is service to others. I believe as we serve other people we are also serving God. If we choose the path the Lord has shown us, and help others along the way, then we will have peace in this life and promised blessings in the next.
