Hi I'm Tommy

I have found a lot of help through talking with Heavenly Father.

About Me

I'm married and am a dad of three. I am attending graduate school. I love camping and hiking.

Why I am a Mormon

As I read in the Book of Mormon I can feel light and energy entering my soul. I feel inspired to do what God has commanded and invited us to do. This is the main way I know that the book is true. The amazing part is that it happens over and over and over. Each time I make the effort to think about what I am reading I feel God communicating with me. It is a proof to me that I am reading His words and am part of His church.

How I live my faith

Some of my happiest moments come from improving myself and helping people around me. But, I get weighed down at times because of all the things I mess up on. Listening to speeches from church leaders and reading scriptures help me feel I can overcome my mistakes and struggles. I try to do a little better each day -- try to be a little more Christlike. My daily goals and daily prayers with Heavenly Father are crucial.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Well, I was a missionary in Oakland, California for 2 years and can share why I wanted to do it. It is a lot like sharing what you like with your friends--but the difference is that the message is more important than anything else in the world. The message is that God speaks to us through a living prophet and that we can come to know Him through His teachings. Some people I met already had a strong belief in God and others had never heard of Him. The reason we share the message is so that they can have the opportunity to come to Him and feel His love. God cares about us and send missionaries out to help us know that. Show more Show less
