Hi I'm Todd

I am a lawyer with an interest in extreme sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an attorney. I practice business litigation in Orange County, California. I am married with three kids. In my spare time, I enjoy running and outdoor activities. I occassionaly dabble in extreme sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a testimony or witness that the Church is true through the Spirit of God. This witness has come to me as I have prayed and read the word of God in the Bible and other scriptures including the Book of Mormon. Because I know the Church is true, I feel obligated to follow its teachings. This is how, in part, I show my love to God. Living the teachings of the Church brings me peace and joy even when I face life's challenges. Being a Mormon is an integral part of who I am.

How I live my faith

My current resonsibility in the Church involves setting up appointments for members of the congregation with their Bishop - or ecclesiastical leader. I help manage the Bishop's schedule and ensure that he can meet with people who need his help. I also help people move and regularly visit other members of my Church.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Members of the Church serve voluntarily without pay out of devotion to God and their fellow man. This allows more Church funds to go to support the needy and other worthy causes. Show more Show less
