Hi I'm Troy

I'm a husband, a father, a world traveler wannabe, a motorcyclist, occasionally mildly handy if I have to be, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of 4 beautiful children, and have been married to my wonderful wife for 18 years. I enjoy doing just about anything that involves my wife and/or children. They are everything to me. I love traveling with them, going to the mountains to hike, or just going for a walk. When I need personal time, I ride my motorcycle. I love to ride in the fall when the weather is dry and cool. I enjoy working, for it seems to be what I spend much of my time on, whether for my job or at home. And I don't recall ever taking on a home improvement project for which I was qualified, but oddly, my house is still standing. Sometimes, that wonderful sense of accomplishment is for a job well done, and sometimes it's for a job that's done.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it brings happiness and hope to me and my family. It brings me joy and freedom as I strive to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Because of my Savior, I can be with my family forever, I can receive forgiveness for my sins and mistakes, and I can truly be happy in this life and forever. I have read the Book of Mormon countless times and am closer to my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ as a result. I understand them better, I love them more, and I understand their love for us better because of that book. I also appreciate the opportunities for service that come from being a Mormon. I enjoy working with other Mormons and friends to help those in my community. We've painted houses together, built trails, cleaned school grounds, landscaped a recreation center, and countless other projects. It's fun to work with so many others in a united cause.

How I live my faith

For me, faith is measured by how we live our lives. I strive to live my faith by serving those in my congregation, and those in my community. Sometimes, I'm the one who needs help - whether it's a tangible need, or just someone to listen or teach me something, so it's important for me to help others as well. I assist with the leadership of our congregation, so I have the opportunity to work with all age groups. There are so many people doing so much good and I love to see how much people care about each other.
