Hi I'm Steven James

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of four wonderful children who are a joy to be with. It is great to be a father and be involved in the lives of my children

Why I am a Mormon

It started with hearing things that are true, that sounded right to me. I did not have a religious childhood and had a great fear about death and life after death. Once I heard the true principles of the gospel, I believed them. I know understand what happens when you die and there is nothing to fear. I understand that families are eternal and that we must work here on this earth to make sure that we and our family - living and dead, receive all the saving ordinances necessary to live with our Heavenly parents again. I joined the church at age 22. I received a witness of the Holy Ghost's testimony that this is the true church. I cannot deny that feeling today. It is just as strong. It is not easy living the gospel principles everyday, but is it worth it. It truly brings a feeling of peace, joy and happiness.

How I live my faith

As a holder of the Priesthood, I am responsible to live my life in harmony with the gospel teachings so that I may have the Holy Spirit with me. This is necessary to understand what my wife and children need each day. It is my responsibility to make sure we have family scripture study and family prayer. I am the one that is going to be held accountable, along with my wife. We strive everyday to make our family day a great day. I have the opportunity to work with youth on a stake level and it is amazing. The youth are a great source of strength and testimony. These spirits are so strong and valiant. They teach me more than I teach them.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Steven James
It is a code of health that if followed will make our bodies healthier and stronger. I love following the Word of Wisdom because it promises us much more that just a healthy body. It also promises us that we will receive wisdom and knowledge about the things we need. I have seen this so much in my efforts at work. The world has changed dramatically since 2008 and I attribute the following of the Word of Wisdom as a great benefit to me in order to get through these changes.   Show more Show less
