Hi I'm James Jorrelle Moore

I grew up in Maywood, Illinois; and moved to Bolingbrook when I was eleven. I want to become an Anesthesiologst. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is James Jorrelle Moore; I grew up in Bellwood, IL in 1996. My parents are James and Theresa Moore and I have three older sisters, no brother. In 2006, I moved to Bolingbrook; a diverse city with little violence so I could grow up with a brighter future and have less hardships. I was eleven when I moved and quickly gained friends because of my positive spirit. Part of this was due to the fact that my parents were members of the Church (LDS), and always told me to stay happy. Growing up was tough, but I always stayed busy. I had new hobbies all of the time, and learned something new every day. When I was in seventh grade a teacher asked me what I wanted to be for the first time. At that time I had no idea. Later that day after struggling through that question I told my mother who decided to look up different things she thought I would like, ranging from nuclear engineering to a dentist. It was then I decided that I wanted to be an anesthesiologist. Chasing this ideal career throughout my life I have made decisions that would put me in the path of becoming that very thing. My Sophmore year my parents bought me four books on anesthesia and medicine, which I have read through. During my Senior year I decided that I would go on a mission. Between preparation for a mission and a carrer I have become, I feel, an extraordinary person with lots of talents.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was three months old my parents were baptized. My mother journeyd from Church to Church seeking the gospel; however, she could not find one that fit. She was a Baptist, Lutherin, Johovahs Witness, Catholic, Protestant, and so many others. After she met my Father she saw a Latter Day Saint ad on the TV. She was really interested in, but missed the end of the comercial. A month later my Mother and my Father drove by the Temple on vacation, but could not enter because it was closed. They marveled at the building and said to themselves, "What church could this be." A few years later she saw a different commercial and sprinted to the TV to see what Church this was. When she found out, she immediatley called the number where she purchased a Book of Mormon. Two weeks later it had arrived, she had set it on the mantel and forgot about it. My father being as curious as he was picked it up and read it from cover to cover. My mother noticed and began to ask him a series of question, just to be answered with a firm READ IT YOURSELF. Grabbing the book from his hand she began to read the marvelous book, and three months later the Missionaries were at the door. Now this is not the story of my conversion, but it is one of the foundation that my testimony is built upon. I share this story with you to say that I am a Mormon because I know of its' truthfullness, and I came about this knowledge because I like my parents have studied the truth.

How I live my faith

My parents are the Pioneers in my family when it comes to the church. They taught my Me and my Siblings the most they could about the gospel. Having recieved the knowledge and wisdom from them, I use it to try and teach others. Recently, we had a challenge to give five Book of Mormons out to people. As we prayed about it we started recieving a pleuthera of people to give one to. At the end of the year we gave out 20 Book of Mormons and Baptized our Cousin. After this, we jsut began trying to teach as many as we could.
