Hi I'm James Douglas

I grew up in Idaho.

About Me

I love our LDS Church. I love my wife, my children, and my grandchildren. I love the outdoors. Photography, hiking, fishing, boating, bowhunting, flying, and off road vehicles (especially dirt biking) are my favorites.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of the LDS church because I felt very relaxed and comfortable in church. I knew that the peaceful feeling I had while attending church meetings was a gift from my Heavenly Father. I have grown to love the gospel and enjoy learning more during Sunday meetings. I especially like knowing that my family can be reunited in heaven if I remain faithful.

How I live my faith

I am active in my church and have a few callings. I enjoy spending time with my family and other church members. I work with other members near my age. It is interesting and enjoyable. I like the feeling I get when donating time and sharing talents with others. I enjoy working with the LDS missionaries that serve in our area.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven't we always had the Bible?

James Douglas
There was not a living Prophet on the earth. The Gospel needed restored to gain a living Prophet and all sacred things that go with it. I am thrilled to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints that has a living, loving Prophet to lead and guide us through this earthly life. The Book of Mormon compliments the Bible and gives me a greater understanding of all our Heavenly Fathers teachings. A living Prophet helps me feel content knowing that we, as members of His Church, have a direct link to Heavenly father through his Son Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

James Douglas
All LDS people have a deep love for the Savior and Father in Heaven. I know that Jesus Christ lives and loves his brothers and sisters her upon the earth. Show more Show less
