Hi I'm Todd

I live in Missouri. I have a PhD in Leadership & Organizational Change. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and father of four. I travel the U.S. and abroad as a business consultant. I love music and sang for 4 years with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, including a once-in-a-lifetime performance in the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. I'm an active triathlete, member of the community theatre board and a Mormon bishop.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I prayed to know God's plan for me. Because I wanted to understand all the blessings promised to us in the holy scriptures. Because I received an answer to prayer that baptism in Christ's church is the narrow gate through which he invites each of us to enter.

How I live my faith

I live my life to honor my Heavenly Father and the eternal plan he has for me. I give my life to the service of all my brothers and sisters. I love my family in a way that invites the spirit of Christ into our home and relationships. I exercise honesty, responsibility and excellence in everything I do.

Why did your church previously practice plural marriage (polygamy)?

The same reason people in Biblical times did: It was a commandment from God. His reasons change. God revealed that polygamy was no longer needed among His people in this era during the late 1800's. Show more Show less
