Hi I'm Tim Petty

I play video games. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I was born & raised in Colorado. I like video games, music, movies and reading. I dig on sci-fi stuff like Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate as well as things like Ghost Hunters, Parking Wars, and Billy the Exterminator. Those are shows I watch. I served a mission in Spain. I was there during the dedication of the Madrid temple. After I came home I got married a little while later and then moved to South Dakota. My first child was born in September of 2010. I'm uber excited. I am in college and work at an insurance company.

Why I am a Mormon

 Although I was baptized at 8 like most children in the church my family became less active shortly after that. When I was 13 my family decided get back into the church, play a more active roll. After I turned 14 I was asked to go on a temple trip for the youth. It was the first time I have been to the Denver temple since its open house many years before. It was a great experience for me and very spiritual. I promised to myself and the Lord that day that I would continue in the church. I also knew that I wanted to serve a mission and was able to do that from 1997-1999. I have been active ever since.

How I live my faith

 I was called as Ward Mission Leader about 3 1/2 years ago. I work with the missionaries and the members in the ward. I help the missionaries teach people wanting to know more about the church and help the members to open their hearts and spirits to help the missionaries find people to teach. I substitute teach the Gospel Essentials class which is the class for those who are new to the church either learning more about it or having been recently baptized.
