Hi I'm Todd

I am your average young man. I love my family, friends, and fun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors (hiking, camping, mountain biking, paint-balling, boating, etc.). I am very into music. I love acting and singing. I think yoga is a blast. I am starting to get into photography with my mom. I love to laugh and have a good time. I am going to school at a University. I am a finish carpenter, working for my dad. I lived in France, Switzerland, and Luxembourg for two years, serving as a full time missionary for the L.D.S. church. I speak french and love it! I used to be a volunteer worker for group that works with individuals with special needs. I love them so much! I love to serve others. I love knowing that I have helped someone have a better day.

Why I am a Mormon

Well to be honest, I was blessed with this Gospel since the day I was born. My dad has been a member his whole life. My mom converted from Presbyterianism when she was in her early 20's. So for my younger years I just kind of followed my parents. When I was on my mission I talked to so many people from every religion you could imagine. I had a moment where I realized that I needed to know what was the truth. I would listen to everyone about what they believed. I studied the scriptures to look for answers. And most importantly I prayed every day and night asking God my questions: if He is really there, if He sent His Son Jesus Christ to Earth to save us, if Jesus is His Son, if there is a truth, if the Bible is true, if the Book of Mormon is true, etc. I received my answers in different ways, but I did get them. And that is why I am and will remain forever a "Mormon".

How I live my faith

I have the privilege of visiting and taking care of the needs of those of whom the Savior spoke, when He spoke of the "lost sheep". Those who have strayed away from the safety of the herd, and more importantly the Shepard. I know that Christ loves all of His children, and desires us to all be unified in Him. I sometimes get to teach in different classes during church meetings as well. But to truly answer the question of "How I live my faith", I would have to say that it is in every action, every word, every choice, and every thought. True, I am so very far from being perfect, but my faith is like the compass pointing me in the direction I must go to reach my destination (Eternal life in the Kingdom of God with all those I love). But as with any compass, one can turn away from it. I do my best, however, to stay true to the faith that I have in our Savior, Jesus Christ. I try to act as He would have me act, speak as He would have me speak, choose what He would have me choose, and think how He would have me think. It is a lot of work, and I expect it will take longer than a lifetime to get it all down. But the great thing about Christ's Atonement (His sacrifice in our behalf) is that despite our imperfections, we can be forgiven and reach the destination as long as we are trying our very best to follow Him. So when I mess up I repent (change what is wrong to be inline with Christ's teachings) and I move forward. I plan to keep moving forward in my faith for the rest of my life and after.
