Hi I'm Thomas

I'm a Mormon

About Me

As a PhD student, I'm currently spending lots of time studying, but I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my family. I love reading, sports, and playing and listening to music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that life is happier when we are doing what God wants us to do. Because I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the Church, I believe that its leaders are truly prophets and apostles. They are continually receiving guidance directly from God, and being a member of the Church allows me to be more sure of what God wants us to do.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best each day to follow Christ's teachings and example. Through prayer, studying the Gospel, loving my family, and serving those around me, I have confidence that I can come closer to reaching that goal.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Thomas
 Yes we do, and this is one of the most comforting truths I can think of. It seems to me that throughout history, people have tried countless ways to find purpose and meaning in life. I truly believe that life has the clearest purpose, meaning, and joy when we are doing what God wants us to do. Having a prophet on the earth today means that we aren't left to ourselves to find a purpose for life. We can know exactly what God wants us to do, and when we try to live in accordance with those principles, we experience the joy and happiness that come from living the way God would have us live.
