Hi I'm TJ

I grew up in Spokane,WA. I love sports and singing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing sports and singing. I play football, basketball, and tennis. I am on a mission in the Arizona Mesa Mission. Before I came on my mission I lived in Washington where my family lives and worked for the Parks and Recreation of the city we live in there. I also have attended BYU-Idaho where I was in the BYU-Idaho Men's Choir and look forward to going back to college when I get off of my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true and I know that this church is true. I've prayed about it to know and you can too.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to always remember who I am and trying to be the best that I can be. I do this by living the gospel and standards of this church everyday no matter what. I really believe that anybody can experience the happiness that comes from being a member of this church. It brings great comfort and joy to be apart of something that blesses your whole life as you strive to follow God and his plan for you. I am on a mission right now but back home I was called to teach the 6 year old children. I really enjoyed being able to teach them and loved the opportunity to help the kids understand and learn more about the basic principles of the gospel. I love the gospel and the opportunity presented to always grow and learn more.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the authority to act in God's name. The priesthood is literally the power of God; and Jesus Christ and all of the prophets held the priesthood when they were here on this Earth. By the priesthood Jesus Christ was able to heal the sick and raise the dead. People who were followers of Jesus also were baptized into the church Christ set up by those who held the priesthood. We believe that the priesthood left the Earth after Christ and his apostles were all killed, but that god has reached out in love and once again restored this blessing to the world through the Prophet Joseph Smith. We also believe that worthy male members of our church hold the priesthood and use it for the same things prophets of old and Jesus Christ and his apostles used it for. Through the priesthood male members of our church are able to help and serve others and it is a great blessing and responsibility to hold this sacred power God has given to man to do his work.
