Hi I'm Tee

I'm a Mormon, and I love rock and roll.

About Me

I am a 28-year old father of three beautiful children. I am married to my best friend and the love of my life. I recently decided to quit my job after ten years of service to focus on starting college and to spend more time with my family. I enjoy music of all backgrounds, I love to read (I'm pursuing an English major), and I love to write.

Why I am a Mormon

I decided to become a member of the church after much soul-searching; although I can trace the decision back to my role as a father. Once my kids came into this world, I knew that I wanted to be with them and my wife forever. I didn't want to accept that this life ends when we die. I also wanted to teach them values and provide a meaningful structure for them for the rest of their lives. The gospel came into my life at the perfect time; I was ready for it and it truly changed the way I feel, live, and look at the world. I knew that it didn't matter that I had tattoos or that I wasn't perfect. Through the Atonement, I could return to live with Heavenly Father, and the prospect of such a reward for an obedient life is more than my heart can comprehend sometimes. But I know it's true; I know because I feel it.

How I live my faith

While I haven't received any callings as of yet (I was baptized very recently), I do work with young children at a daycare five days a week. I pray often, and I ask for the strength to live as He would want me to.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is, simply put, a knowledge that what we believe is true. Like a testimonial is when someone has used a product and has seen results that reaffirm their purchase, we receive testimony of our faith in Jesus Christ in many ways-sometimes when we pray, and other times when we see His hand in our everyday lives.
