Hi I'm Tony

I'm a paralegal and a father. I was in the Army for sixteen years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a paralegal who served in the Army JAG Corps for thirteen years before I got out to go to graduate school. I have a grown son who lives in the same town as me, so we see each other regularly. I enjoy reading, watching movies, and listening to music. 

Why I am a Mormon

I received Jesus Christ as my personal Savior in 1990, but I was never affiliated with any single religion. Since I was in the military, every time I was reassigned to a new area, I would find a church in that area that I felt comfortable in, where I could feel the presence of the Spirit of the Lord. About a year ago, some Mormon missionaries came to my door and asked me if I was looking for a new church. I said that I was, and they gave me a tour of the Mormon church in my area. The building was empty when we toured it, so I wasn't able to form an opinion about it one way or the other. But then they gave me a copy of the Book of Mormon to read. When I read the Book of Mormon, I knew that it was the true word of God. I prayed about it, and it was revealed to me that yes, this was a true testament. A little over a month later, I was baptised. I've been a member of the Church for over two years now, and my life has never been so full.

How I live my faith

When I had been a member of the Church for about a month and a half, I was called to be the Historian for my ward. As I gathered information from the various parts of the ward about their activities during the previous year, I met new people, and gained a greater knowledge of people that I had already met. As I read their individual conributions and incorporated them into the Annual History, I felt the Spirit many times.
