Hi I'm T.J.

I'm the father of six kids and own a construction company. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the proud father of six beautiful children and am lucky to have an incredible and beautiful wife at my side. I love being outdoors, whether it be camping, fishing, hunting or playing golf. I have an MBA finance and have worked for several small businesses before starting my own construction company. I enjoy spending time with my family and working in the garden...it's kind of like my daily release from the grind.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from a long line of members of the Church. My ancestors crossed the plains with the early saints and I love reading about their stories. As I prepared to serve a two year mission I realized that I had relied heavily on the beliefs of those who had gone before and I felt the desire to know for myself if those beliefs were true. On a cold winters night (and no this is not the beginning of a Kenny Rogers' song) I knelt down in the snow and poured my heart out to my Heavenly Father asking Him to help me know what was real and true. I didn't see hosts of angels or visions, but I did feel a warm peace penetrate into my soul and I knew that Heavenly Father was real and that He loves me and that he has a Plan for each of us. From that day on, I have tried to live the Gospel as fully and meaningfully as I can.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving with the youth in our congregation and assisting the Bishop in some of his responsibilities. I also coach a baseball and soccer team for my children.
