Hi I'm Tim

I'm a Mormon. I grew up and still live in Southern Illinois.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I joined the church in 1975 after I tried to prove its doctrine false. After reading the book of Mormon and praying about its origin, the Holy Ghost bore witness to me that it was a true book and that Joseph Smith was indeed a true Prophet of God. I have since dedicated my life to the building up of the Lord's Kingdom here on earth. I have raised sons and daughters unto the Lord. All that I am or that I may ever become is because of the doctrines of this church, which are based on the true teachings of Jesus Christ. I testify to anyone who made be reading this message now that this is the only church on the earth that has the Gospel of Jesus Christ in all its fullness and glory. I testify that this church has a Prophet of God at the head that instructs this people on how to live righteously, to serve one another, to bear one another's burdens. I was taught that I am personally responsible for my own relationship with God. I was taught to be more respectful and loving to parents, spouse, children, and other family members and friends. I was taught that my body is a sacred temple, which houses my spirit and that I should keep it holy and not to let anything impure into it. I was taught a code to live by, called the Word of Wisdom. This is described in the 89th chapter of the Doctrine and Covenants. I was taught to pray for every needful thing, not only for me, but for my family, also. I was blessed with the Priesthood of God and use it to bless those around me. I bear witness that Jesus is the Son of God and only by Him can we be saved.

How I live my faith

I am now serving as Branch Clerk. I have served previoulsy on the Stake High Counsel, I was a Branch President for 8 years and have served in many other callings.
