Hi I'm Tim

I grew up in Texas. I have seven brothers and one sister, and I love playing sports, especially soccer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have seven brothers and one sister. I love coming from a big family. I grew up playing every sport I could, and I love being outside. When I got to high school I focused my efforts on soccer, and that became my passion. When I finished high school I left for college and began my exploring what I might want to study. After switching from one major to another I have found myself studying business with a psychology minor. I live my life day by day trying to work and get through school experiencing the joys and frustrations of college life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I am looking for the same things almost every is--happiness and meaning. My faith provides me with understanding and happiness. I like to compare it to having a small light in a dark room, and the more I learn and lean on my faith the more the room lights up, and I can see where I am going in life. The most simple reason for why I live my faith is because there is a black and white difference in my happiness when I live it and when I do not. My faith is not for Sundays alone, but it spills over and affects every aspect and day of my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by focusing on the basics--to be a doer of the word rather than a hearer only. Prayers and reading the scriptures find place in my life daily. I strive to give unplanned service whenever possible. The biggest way I live my faith is by being a good son, brother, and friend. As a part of my participation in my church, I regularly make visits to other members to see if they are doing alright spiritually, financially, in school, and whatever else they may need. I also teach lessons during one of our three meetings in church. I love faith, and it requires commitment, but that is what the Savior asked for, and commitment is what brings happiness and stability in life.
