Hi I'm Jim

I was raised on Biggs AFB in El Paso. Graduated from BYU in 1977. We have 7 children and 7 grand children and 2 on the way.

About Me

I am a retired engineer and loved my work. We love 4 wheeling and camping. Especially a lot of dutch oven cooking. We also have a large garden which keeps us busy in the summer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by my mother who always had a testimony of the church. In the process of getting married and having 7 children we have been profoundly blessed. My wife and I have always been blessed and comforted when the trials have come. And looking back our Father in heaven has always looked out for us and guided us when times have been tough. I know of his personal and profound love for each of us.

How I live my faith

My callings in the church have been with the young men. I have worked in the scouting program and attended wood badge. Have been Young mens president and Bishop and served a mission to central and south america.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

We know that these relationships are eternal, not just for this earth. Our loved ones will be with us again. In being true to ourselves and families we are being true to Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
