Hi I'm Tom

I live in North Carolina but grew up in Idaho. I am a husband, father and grandfather. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a father of five great children all married and a grandfather to 20 grandchildren. I married my sweetheart and love of my life. We are best friends and have always been. I own a consulting firm specializing in environmental and sustainability projects with emphasis on life cycle analysis. I love the outdoors. My favorite hobby is gardening and woodworking. I look forward to the day when my wife and I can begin our missionary service which we plan to repeat until we wear out.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a personal witness to the truth of the restoration of Christ's church on the earth along with a deep belief in the Book of Mormon. As I read the scriptures and 'liken them' to me and my life experiences, I find answers to prayers, to questions and to life's challenges. I know that a loving Heavenly Father knows me by my first name. I know he is always there, in the same place. If I can't feel him there, then it is because I have moved. I am ever thankful for covenants that bind me to my family forever. That makes me want to be better every day.

How I live my faith

 I am a husband, father and grandfather. I realize that I have the opportunity to have a positive influence on the lives of my children and grandchildren. I also realize that how I conduct myself in my vocation and community speaks volumes. Although far from perfect, I realize the power of a warm word or smile.
