Hi I'm James

I was born in Utah. I worked on a farm, love to play basketball, and I'm headed to Portland Oregon for a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have eight siblings. I'm the second oldest. I love basketball, snowboarding, hiking, and tennis. My favorite place in the world is Zion National Park, or any place with beautiful mountains. I love music. I especially love music that is uplifting that brings me closer to God. There is nothing better than driving through mountainous areas while listening to inspiring music. I'm headed to serve a full time mission in Portland Oregon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon simply because I have prayed to know if the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, and the spirit of God made it manifest to me in His time. The only way to know if the church is true is to pray about it. I did just that. Because I prayed about it, I have come to know of the truth of the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service and being an example to others. I love doing service projects with the youth in my ward. We help the elderly in our neighborhood, we serve those in need, and we bond closer together as we do these things. I try to be an example of a follower of Christ by having a good attitude when I serve. I study the scriptures daily. I read both the Book of Mormon and the Bible. They go hand in hand, and they both help me in my every day life. They both testify of Jesus Christ.
