Hi I'm Todd

I love music hanging out and working hard and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 My name is Todd and I am currently serving a mission for the church in Oklahoma City. Before my mission I spent a lot of time before my misson working. I enjoy just hanging out and taking some time to relax. I was going to school and I will be going back to school soon. I enjoy music and have played in music groups for over 9 years. I look forward to having a family of my own one day and to finishing school and starting my carrer.

Why I am a Mormon

 Well I was born into the church but it doesnt mean I always lived my religion. During high school I decided I wanted to be myself. I left the church for a time because I was not converted I had no testimony. Well I moved to a place where I had a lot better influences on me and started to apply the atonement of Christ. Then as I attended church read the Book of Mormon I just felt so much better about myself and about my life. I could tell I was getting closer to my Father in Heaven and it helped me out so much I absolutley love the gospel

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by going out and speaking to people each day. Right now i have the unique opportunity to go and serve the Lord with all my time,energy, and love. As a missionary I have learned valuable lessons that have strengthened my testimony of the gospel but have made me a better person. I look forward to the time I go home and am able to apply the things that I have learned so that I can serve faithfully in the church and be a light to those who dont have the gospel in their lives.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

 There is so many different ways you can come to feel that the gospel is true. First things first you have to gain a testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ. There are tools given to us to learn of Him and His gospel. First the Bible study and read about His life and Ministry. Then one must gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon Another Testament of Jesus Christ. This is the keystone of our religion. With that we come to know that the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored through a modern prophet and that this is His Church on the earth. To gain a testimony you must first actually read the Book of Mormon. Then think about what it is teaching and then pray and ask God in the name of Jesus Christ if the book is true. Then will the Holy Ghost teach you all things and confirm the answers you are looking for. It is important to be sincere in your search. Dont try to prove it wrong because then you have already made up your mind. Have a feeling of really trying to see if its right. Other ways you can come to know that this religion is true is by simply applying the principles of the church and see if it does two things. First does it bring you closer to God and Jesus Christ. Second, does it improve the quality of your life. If these two are true then they act as a testimony of what you have been doing is true. Show more Show less
