Hi I'm Jim Thomas

I'm a husband, a father, a grandfather, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up working on our family fruit farm with my three brothers. I became active in the church in my teens when my father was baptized. I then served a two-year Mormon proselyting mission in Ireland, graduated from college, and had a 30 year teaching career.

Why I am a Mormon

The teachings of the Mormon Church help me to understand the Atonement of Jesus Christ, help me to live a Christian lifestyle, help me to know that I have a purpose in life, and help me to be happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by studying the scriptures, doing volunteer service, attending church, and keeping the Sabbath.
