Hi I'm Tod

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of four grown children, 2 boys and 2 girls. My wife and I have the pleasure of 13 grandchildren. I have been an entrprenuer since opening a restaurant 30 years ago. Now I am a marketer and salesman as a partner in a start up company in the retail food arena with an ongoing business in the wellness industry.

Why I am a Mormon

My second son joined the Church upon graduation from high school, went to college for one year and then served a two year mission in Portugal. Almost immediately upon his return my wife was baptized but I was not interested or ready. However, after observing her faith in action and being invited numerous times to assorted church activities including Sacrament meetings (all of which I declined) she challenged me to read the Book of Mormon. The challenge was offerred in the form of a question, "How did I know what I was saying no to if I did not take the time to learn about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon?" We are a logical and educated couple and family and this challenge left me with no legitimate answer other than to hear out the missionaries and read the book. It took some time, but I have now been a member of the Church since September 2004 and my testimony grows stronger everyday. I believe the Book of Mormon to be true, to be the word of God and I believe that my life is fuller and more rewarding because of this belief.

How I live my faith

I never thought much about prayer previous to being baptized, but now I find solace, strength, energy, guidance and love from daily prayer. While attending all my church meetings and serving as well as possible in my calling I also try to live according to the gospel and commandments and be an example to others I come in contact with everyday.
