Hi I'm Tom

I live in Arizona. Im a student. Im a Mormon.

About Me

I am going to college right now. I am not sure what I want to major in yet, but maybe along the lines of pre-med or kinisiology.???? I love to spend time with family and love to play basketball with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life. Thanks to my parents they taught me the pure gospel of Christ. I have felt His love a lot in my life and especially in my home with my family. I have always felt that this church is Christ's true church, but I truly have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. I have studied it a lot and asked the Lord to know if it is true and I know it is. I feel so good while I read it. It has given me so much direction, peace, and instruction to my life. I feel that thanks to the Book of Mormon I know my Savior Jesus Christ and that He can be close to us. I am so deeply grateful for a prophet and apostles today. Every time I listen to them, I feel an undeniable security that they are the Lord's appointed spokesman.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving with the 12 year old scouts/ deacons in my ward. I also home teach 2 families which are awesome. I also love going to the temple. I go as often as I can.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Tom
I am grateful that Christ sacrificed His heavenly throne to come down to live here on earth and suffer just as we do and even more. I am comforted to know that even though we have times of much suffering.....even sometimes more than we think we can bear....that there is One who suffered the exact same things. He knows what we feel and He knows how to comfort us. That is why I love the atonement. I know that it is real and I love Jesus Christ for what He does for me day to day. Show more Show less
