Hi I'm Todd Albrecht

I grew up in Ohio and came to know the Church through some wonderful friends in high school. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the proud father of three wonderful kids. I have been married to my sweetheart for nearly twenty years. I joined the Church when I was 18 after having investigated the Church for almost two years. My folks made me wait until I was 18 to be baptised though I was ready to be baptised almost immediately after meeting with the missionaries. I served a full time mission in southern Mexico. I work in the public sector and am an avid family historian. I am an arbitrator for Familysearch indexing. I am currently serving as a Scoutmaster of a Boy Scout Troop in our fantastic ward.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons why I am a Mormon and I could fill many volumes with those reasons. Simply stated, I am a Mormon because I have received answers to my prayers as to whether or not the Church is true. The Church is true! Once I knew it was true, I knew I had to act on those feelings. I continue to receive answers to my prayers and have seen many great miracles. I feel fortunate that we have a prophet today to help us through these troubled times. I appreciate the counsel we receive from him as well as the peace it brings to me. I could not imagine being a father and a husband without knowing that we have a prophet today to lead and guide us! I am also greatful to know that my Savior lives. I have a testimony that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. I know that he died for my transgressions. I also know that he is my brother and if I am diligent, I can receive all that He and my Father in Heavens has.

How I live my faith

Family History is one of my passions. I love finding my ancestors and have come to appreciate the many sacrifices that were made in the past that have benefitted me and my family today! I am constantly talking to others about my passion for family history. More and more people are yearning to find their own ancestors and know how they fit in to this world.
