Hi I'm James W. McConkie III

I am the blessed husband of Laurel Springer. We have four great kids and live in Salt Lake City, where I practice law.

About Me

I am a dad and a husband. Professionally, I am a lawyer. I fill my free time with family, friends, swimming, skiing, music, and good food. I am interested in history, religion, politics and ideas.

Why I am a Mormon

The reasons I believe are numerous. I have been blessed by regular study of the Book of Mormon. I've felt the power of prophets. I am strengthened in my relationship to God because of the covenants I've made with him, particularly those made in temples. And, most importantly, I have sensed and felt the reality of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My wife and I will be traveling to the Czech Republic with our family in July to serve as missionaries for the Church. I've learned that the key to vibrant and active faith is service. Nothing is more satisfying than helping others.
