Hi I'm James

I'm a college student studying veterinary science through Washington State University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love singing and playing soccer, as well as ultimate frisbee. I just recently married a beautiful woman I met at school. I am studying to be a veterinarian.

Why I am a Mormon

Through the tough, depressing periods of my life, I have felt the comfort of God reassuring me that things do get better, and my past doesn't have to hold me back from my divine potential. God cares about the temporal aspects of my life, and guides me in my life decisions. I am able to feel the power of God through obedience to His commands, and through the service rendered by His authorized priesthood holders. I know that Joseph Smith, the first prophet of our time, really did see the Father and Jesus Christ, and through him restored knowledge of how to make full use of the Atonement, for both healing our souls and giving us strength to become more like Him.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and try to serve in whatever way is asked of me. I have been a teacher for Sunday school, and have been a leader for a church choir, but I usually help with setting up for church events and cleaning up afterwards. I love to participate in service projects and volunteer for helping fellow community members.
