Hi I'm Tom Wilson

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a simple guy. I love my family. I love sports. I love my job. I love my God and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I love new things and meeting new people. I am an patent attorney who has transitioned to an executive role at a Healthcare IT company I attribute all successes and accolades I have received to my Heavenly Father and the opportunities and talents he has blessed me with. I love to play softball and basketball and am picking up rugby. I watch MMA fights when I can and participate in endurance events like the Tough Mudder and Ragnar. I believe my body is a temple and try and treat it that way except for the occasional Double-Double animal style for In-n-Out. I also love all kinds of fishing, from drowning worms with my girls looking for bluegill to fly fishing for trout to deep sea tuna fishing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have been since I was a child. I have been born of goodly parents who were anxiously engaged in setting an example for me of Christlike service. As an adult I am converted to His gospel over and over again via the little things like lying down in the grass admiring the beauty of the Earth with my two girls talking about the Plan of Happiness or lending a helping hand by pushing a broken down vehicle to a safe spot or by simply reading and pondering the holy scriptures. Witnesses of the truth of this gospel are all around me, constantly providing me an ever increasing desire to become a better man. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth for the benefit of mankind and ultimately for our happiness. As I follow the tenets of His gospel i have found great joy and happiness which is a testament to me of its truth.

How I live my faith

I try to live me faith at all times, not just on Sunday afternoons. I spend a lot of time with young men via Boy Scouts or other activities and truly enjoy the opportunity I have to influence these boys at such a critical period in their lives. I have seen the affect that seemingly insignificant choices in teenage years have on these boys and am committed to helping them be happy both now and in the long run.
