Hi I'm Timothy

I'm living life to the fullest and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well I'm a pretty easy going guy. Things don't seem to bother me too much. I guess its just the California mentality. I am an Eagle Scout, so i love the outdoors. Anything that has to do with camping is just my zen spot. I was born in New Mexico and moved out to California when i was about 9 years old. I lived in a pretty small town in both California and New Mexico. I like sports especially Ultimate Frisbee. Anything that gets me outside and doing something with friends is just the thing for me. I love just kickin back and relaxing with my friends. I play the piano and the guitar and i love to sing more than anything. I was in my schools jazz choir and loved every minute of it. I am currently serving a two year mission for our Heavenly Father. I'm serving in the Oklahoma, Oklahoma City mission. I can't imagine myself doing anything but serving the lord at this point in my life. After my Mission i plan on going to college to become a teacher. I want to teach math and history. I love my family. They Rock! They support me in everything that I do and I couldnt imagine where I would be without the family that I have. They really helped me to finally get out on a mission and to serve the Lord with the understanding that I now have that the Book of Mormon is true and the Joseph Smith really saw God the Eternal Father and His son Jesus Christ and that I am here for a specific purpose. I love this Gospel and I love the people that helped me get to the realization that this is true.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I grew up in the church. I was raised to know that these things were true. When I was younger I moved out thinking that if I did I would never need to have anything to do with the church ever again. I did things that I never should have done and I look back and realize that now. I now know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is the true church of Jesus Christ once again on the earth. I know for a fact that it is led by a modern day prophet that recieves direct revelation from our Heavenly Father for the members of the church and the people all over the world. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his son Jesus Christ on that spring morning. I know that he was called of God to restore the church to its original form just as Christ had established it during his earthly ministry. I know that he translated that ancient record with the power of God. I know that Book of Mormon is the true word of God and I came to that realization the same way the missionaries challenge others to, by reading it and by praying to know that it is true. If there was any doubt in my mind I would not be out serving the Lord today. I am a Mormon because I have found these things out for myself and there is no denying that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each and everyday by going around and trying to increase the faith of others, by teaching them and helping them recieve the Gospel of Jesus Christ, by helping them increase that faith and to follow Christ each and everyday. I have seen what the atonement can do for people first hand. I have felt that love of Christ and want others to feel it as well. By helping others to change their lives for the better and to see that desire to be baptized and recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost it increases my faith tremendously. I try to live everyday the way our Father in Heaven would want us to. Faith is the most basic step in coming unto Christ and with that everything else falls into place. I wouldn't know what to do if this wasn't the truth. I would be lost and thousands of people would be lost as well. Still there are those who are lost and we need to find them and help them to understand what us as members know to be true. They especially need to know of the power of the atonement. The love of our Father in Heaven and his son Jesus Christ should be something that all strive to experience. So for me I am out serving the lord trying to increase the faith of others so that they can feel that love, so that they can know the things that I know are true, and so they can know that there is a point to this life and that is to return to our Father in Heaven. By sharing this with others, my faith grows tremendously. I live my faith by trying to increase the faith of all those who are around me.
