Hi I'm Tony

I am a a sports fan, Garadose is my favorite Pokemon, I Eat Breakfast Essentials shake every morning, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Utah, in a family of 4. I am number 3, I have 2 sisters and 1 brother. Right now I am just finishing up serving a mission in New England. It's been an awesome ride. I will then move on with my life and go to school full time. It's gonna be sweet. I love watching sports, my teams are the Minnesota Vikings and the Utah Jazz. I hate sitting around and am always on the go. Anything outdoors or just with movement I am down with.  

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church so a better question is why am I still Mormon. I reason that I continue to endure is because I have felt the Lord in my life on countless occasions. I have felt him change me from a little boy to a responible young man. I have felt his influence in every aspect of my life, even the things that many would not think are important, they are important to him. I have come to know without a doubt that Christ is the only way to happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come. I have also come to know that the ordinances or ceremonies necessary for us to be forgiven of sins are in this church. They are through the Priesthood or the power God gives to man to act in his name. Ordinances such as baptism, recieving the Holy Ghost, and the sacrament, are things I need in my life to continue. Bluntly put I am a Mormon because it is the only way to fully live for God, and that is what I want.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by making sure I am living the Gospel everyday. The simple things like avoiding anger and conention are things that make me a happier person. These are the things that Christ taught. I am not perfect, but as I "strive" to live the commandements and follow the prophet, I know my effort will be good enough. He always helps me when I am down, I owe it to him to repay him by expressing love through prayer, and by obedience in daily living.
