Hi I'm Timothy

I am a soldier in Gods army. I am a skater. I am a Convert to the church and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am the guy that wants everyone to be his friend! I enjoy creating delicious food for my friends to enjoy...and for the most part I love eating too! I enjoy a nice day of skateboarding and strive to be better. I hope to learn more about robotics and build a future around creating things to help change the world and make it a better place. I am currently serving Heavenly Father and his children by volunteering 2 years of my life for a mission. I miss home and the family and friends there...but I Know Heavenly Father is taking good care of them. I Discovered A new life when I joined the Church. A life of good people with great desires. Joining this church has only brought improvement to who I am and the goals I have to be more like my Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Mormon church of about 4 years. I found myself asking questions about religion and my role in it when I was in 8th grade. I soon discovered I had a lot of friends who were Mormon and decided to inquire of them as to what they believed and why they believed it. I soon found something I never had before and that was understanding! I found a standard I could live by. A standard that would help me grow into someone I wanted to be. I wanted to be closer with my savior. So... Why am I a Mormon? How about Why Not? There is so much negative energy in the world and one day I came to the thought of "Why am I contributing to that?" So I decided looking at life as a glass being full and overflowing rather than half empty or half full. I came to know the truth through the teachings of Jesus Christ. Having Faith and believing that Heavenly Father will help me, Scripture Study, Experience by keeping Gods commandments, and giving myself to deep prayer is how I came to know for myself. It’s like a math formula Faith+study+Keep his commandments+Deep sincere Prayer=Answer! I have found out through time that one must have all of these things in order to achieve the end result. If Heavenly Fathers children could receive visions and see mighty miracle then why can I not receive the same thing today? If God loves all his children should I not also be entitled to receiving revelation? I know how Heavenly Father wants me to live my life because I now have and answer. That to me is the best feeling in the world! To understand what His Will is for us. "nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done." Luke ch.22 Again I repeat my testimony...Why not? 

How I live my faith

Because I choose to live my Faith I have been called to represent him. Therefore I am careful in what I think, say, or do. Am I perfect? of course not. That’s ludicrous! However, I am striving for excellence in becoming more like my creator. Currently I am serving a mission for the church and have enjoyed so much of it! I have learned more scripture knowledge then ever before. I have helped and served the people here and in the process have been serving our Heavenly Father. I know that is what he would have us do. To love each other and care for one another as Jesus does for us. There is no feeling that is like the feeling you get when you love everyone...no matter whom they are!
