Hi I'm Thomas

I've lived in California, Michgan, Ireland and Wisconsin and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a career, I manage the development of medical devices used to improve and sometimes save lives. This career choice has allowed me the opportunity for deep introspection on a daily basis, as I ponder on if what I am doing today will sometimes in the future enhance or save a human life. My thoughts then turn to the question of “What have I done today to enhance or save a human Soul?” I believe that we are all here on this earth today and at this time, to service and help others by putting to use the gifts that God has given us and that He has entrusted into our care. We should respect, honor and share those gifts with others. When we share those gifts and the message of Jesus Christ as serve others, then perhaps a human soul came be touched and encouraged in this world of mixed messages of immorality in a manner that will lead to its ultimate potential.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or “Mormon” because I have been given a strong witness that this faith teaches the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is through the witness of the Holy Ghost that this truth and the truths of many other things have been given to me. One of those truths is that Jesus is the Christ. I feel sorrow for the pains and suffering He has willingly gone through for mine and the sins of the world, yet I rejoice in the redeeming sacrifice He has made to allow me the blessing of repentance to enable me to improve day-by-day.

How I live my faith

I simply live my faith by serving others, whether that is my spouse, family, fellow church members or strangers. The Christ who walked the earth gave us an example of service, His life was not about Him it was about others and how to uplift, encourage and love our fellow brothers & sisters. In my many callings in the church there has always been one common theme “service to others”. One can read, ponder and pray all day, yet if they have not charity and a love for mankind, it will avail nothing.
