Hi I'm Tim

I am a welding instructor, a sculptor, an inventor, a reformed biker, a grandfather and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an artist. most of my work is in metal. The last few years i have been working with an other artist who designs copper fountians. She provides me with a small mock up of what she is looking for..... I engineer it and turn it into reality. I also teach welding and metal fabrication at a near by plant. I am a biker, always have been, always will be.....however, I now ride motercycles with out the attitude. I'm on a full dress kow at the moment. My first new bike I have ever owned. Been on Harley's all my life; desided I want to ride more fix less, so I bought the Vulcan. I recently renewed my interest in archery and have built a compound bow. Finally got it set up the way I like it. Have been studying white-tail deer how's and wherefores, will be going on my first deer hunt soon. ( we'll see how that goes...) I have five kids all grown and married; two of which had the need to move back in. ( this economy is rough ) My first marriage lasted eight years, too young and selfish. The second one is going on thirty three years. I was out to lunch for a long time, finally started to be responsible for my own actions.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Roman Catholic, but it never felt right....it left too many unanswered questions. the most profound and disterbing was , when I was in school I asked the nun (our teacher) "what happens when we die"? I was about 8 or 9.....she answerd, "no body knows...You'l find out when you die." That always stuck in my craw! After I left home , went into the service, I also went out to lunch......didn't return for a very long time.( in fact many times i thought I would not make it through the next few moments, literelly) Life happens, and I came to a point in my life that i had to change or I would not survive much longer. I was 33. I began to study to impove my spiritual side.....8 years latter I stumbled across the Mormons. 95% of the questions I had/have had that were created by other study, including the most important one that was still stuck in me-craw. I knew I had found the truth at last. I will be 67 this year 2011, I was baptised in 1978. the only thing I treasure more than the church, is my family.

How I live my faith

I have found through the years if you do not stay fixed on the purpose of why we are here on earth, the DISTRACTIONS will help you forget. It's the last thing i want to forget. I work hard, I play hard; and so do the distractions. I have committed myself to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be an example of the principles and teachings. I share my feeling and my beliefs freely and openly with whomever I find that may be interested, without jamming it down their throat. I know, I would not have listed either if I didn't want to here it. I have let my art work, the sculptures (time consuming pieces at times) distract me from my goals. But because of the love I have for the Gospel and the desires of my heart was able to get on with what is important...... To me what is important is to be worthy, and continue to be worthy, to be able to be in the presence of God the Father and Jesus Christ.
