Hi I'm James D. Thornton

Grew up in North Carolina. I'm a Missionary. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love the outdoors. I love computers. I am an Eagle Scout. I am currently serving in the South Dakota Rapid City Mission. I plan on joining the Navy to serve my country to the best of my ability.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have grown up knowing that my savior loves me and I cannot see a reason why Heavenly Father would not want me to come back to him. I have seen many people that I have come to love, bring themselves closer to our savior, Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus has once again established His church in fulness on the Earth before His second coming. I know that he called Joseph Smith to be a prophet on the Earth and to bring forth the Book of Mormon. I know that my savior lives and loves me. And I know that he loves each and everyone of you. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith firstly as a disciple of Christ. I share the gospel with those that I meet and I love to bring joy to everyone through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
