Hi I'm James Scott Mitchell

I grew up in Utah. I love playing soccer. I plan on attending Southern Utah University and becoming a surgeon. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing soccer and watching soccer games, namely Real Salt Lake. I grew up playing all sports which includes soccer, football, tennis, golf, baseball, and basketball and loved every minute of it. I'm planning on going to college and then on to medical school to become an orthopedic surgeon. I'm the oldest of four children and love my family so much. We also have two dogs that are a blast to have. I have participated in the International Baccalaureate program in high school and I am so excited to serve an LDS mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My third great grandparents joined the church back in Scotland and came over to the United States, since then all of my family have been mormons, and we all love the gospel. I know that this church is true because I have had it manifested to me while reading the Book of Mormon. I know Joseph Smith restored the church because he translated the Book of Mormon, and it is completely true, so therefore, Joseph Smith was a true prophet who re-established Christ's church back on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I actively participate in my ward and serve as a primary teacher, and to go in more depth, I essentially help with a four year old autistic boy. I'm kind of like his buddy and friend for during the church block. I also participate in home teaching, and regularly go visiting with the bishopric. I participated in the young men program, and in scouting.
