Hi I'm Tom

I'm a Optometric Physician in the Seattle area. I love being a father and grandfather. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an optometrist, I enjoy helping people around me. My wife, children and grandchildren are the most important things in my life. I do enjoy outdoors, golfing and boating when I can find the time. I've been involved with scouting and working with kids most of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be Mormon because of the principles that are taught in the church. These are the principles taught by Jesus Christ. I find as I live by these principles that I have extreme joy and happiness within my life. These principles help me to be closer to my family and for my family to be closer to one another. Living by the priciples of Christ bring peace to me and help me to be centered in a world that seems to have more and more distractions and unrest in it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to learn of and live by the characteristics of Jesus Christ. I try to help my family, neighbors and those around me. I know I'm not perfect but I try to live my life the best that I can. I attend church weekly with my family. I have served in one church calling or another all of my life. I currently serve organizing and participating with the youth of our church. I visit and try to help members of our congregation on a regular basis.
