Hi I'm Todd Smith

I grew up in Vancouver Washington and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the church. I went on a mission and was married/sealed in the Seattle Washington Temple. My wife and I grew up in the Portland Oregon Metro area. We have four childern. Our oldest is a girl and is married. Our second oldest is currently serving a mission. Our next oldest is 15 years old and he is freshman in high school. Our youngest is almost 9 and she will be going into 4th grade. We are very involved in sports activities. I love to coach basketball and soccer and my kids have participated in just about every sport.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life. I love the gospel. It is who I am and what I have become. My character and I how live my life is based on my belief in the gospel. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that he lives. I know that there is a living prophet on the earth today. Through modern day revelation, through his prophet and apostles, Jesus Christ continues to run his church today. I know because of the convenants that I have taken my family can be together forever. Because of my obedience and faithfullness in the gospel I know that my family can be an eternal family. I know this church is true and that it provides me with the princples and doctrines that will give me the opportunity to return to live with Jesus Christ forever.

How I live my faith

My service in the church envolveds working with the youth in high school. I am an adminstrator in the church education program. All high school youth attend early morning seminary prior to going to school. This provide an opportunity for the your to be spiritual feed before going to school. Monthly my son and I visit other members of the church to provide support, teaching and service.
