Hi I'm Tim

Im a Veteran, a Writer, and Student. Oh, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I like to do it all. There isn't much I really don’t like to do. I served in the United States Military as an Aviation Electronics Technician, a Fire Fighter and a Project Supervisor on an Aircraft Carrier and a Detainee Guard in Iraq. I was salesmen, and now a Student of Politcal Sceince, Economics, and English at Boise State University. I have plans to attend Law School after I finish with all that. I love doing anything that involves fun, all sports, games of any kind, and anything to do outdoors, swimming, in pools, rivers, lakes, playing on mountains, skiing, snowboarding--yes, both! making caves, camping, boating, sky-diving, scuba-diving, and board-diving--like in a pool. Visiting Exotic places like Thailand, Dubai, China, Singapore, etc., and doing whatever life has to offer me. I am big into the arts as well, I love to write, play my violin, reading, drawing, viewing, and just learning. My biggest passion is my Faith, it’s so deep and fulfilling, and no matter what I’m doing in life, it brings me the most joy. I am a newlywed and loving life with my beautiful eternal companion! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes sense. The teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints make me a better person, strengthen my relationships with my family, friends, and most importantly God and His Son Jesus Christ. I've never been happier than when I am living the standards of my Faith. I know this is what God wants for me.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by always being available to answer a call. Whether that call is from a struggling friend, or from a Church leader asking me to serve. I know that Jesus Christ wants me to feed his sheep. And although I am not perfect, far from it actually, He wants me to try. So no matter what yesterday's failures were, I can try my best right now.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a book of scripture which testifies of Christ, written by prophets just like the Bible. However the Book of Mormon was written on another continent by a people who inhabited the ancient Americas. The Book of Mormon is so much more than a great history book though, it is everything to me. It has changed my life, and I know without a doubt that it is of God. Its sole purpose is to bring people to the knowledge and love of Christ. It has done that for me. I cannot study it without feeling the proptings of the Holy Ghost testifying to me: Jesus is the Christ and this is His book. Show more Show less
