Hi I'm Tony

I love sports, music, the outdoors, my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a PhD student in Civil and Environmental Engineering. I have been married for five years and we have a daughter that is two and a newborn son. They give life flavor! I enjoy music and have played the guitar for about 10 years and the drums for about five. I am an addict to sports and I like reading science fiction. A perfect day for me would be spending the day with my family and my siblings.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I need help... that sounds strange but the truth is that I realized, when I was still in high school, that life was hard. I realized that I allowed the opinions of others weigh me down. I wanted inner strength. I wanted to have confidence that I was someone important. My conversion came while reading the Book of Mormon. My realization while reading the book was that true strength and integrity come from serving the Lord and keeping His commandments.

How I live my faith

My family and I go to church each Sunday and participate in different responsibilities while there. We have had all types of duties including teaching a religion class for children 8 and 9 years-old, leading the teenagers aged 14 and 15, and currently I am one of the members of a presidency for a group of adult men in the church. We live our religion by interacting with those around us. We like visiting the elderly couples in our neighborhood and learning of their experiences. We like bringing our neighbors cookies when it seems like they need it.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon was written by prophets that lived on the American continent during the ancient times (600 BC to about 400 AD). It speaks of the migration of a people from Jerusalem to the American continent. The prophets' responsibility was to testify of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon, in addition to the Bible, is another witness that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and our Savior. Show more Show less
