Hi I'm Tom

I was born in Utah, grew up in California, and am living in Arizona. I am an identical twin, am a CPA by trade, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a CPA by trade. My hobbies include spending time with my family whether at home, at their activities, on vacation, etc. Enjoy most sports. Am a huge BYU fan. Am an eagle scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because of the knowledge of the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation, Plan of Happiness, Plan of Redemption of Our Heavenly Father. From the Plan we learn the answers to some of life's questions that most of us seek - Where did I come from before I was born? Why am I here on earth? Where will I go after I die? I also know families are the most important unit in time and eternity - and our families can be together forever. These things are all made possible by a loving Heavenly Father who is the father of our spirits and wants us to be happy, grow and develop, and return to live with Him. Because we all sin, we needed a Savior; and Heavenly Father sent His Son to atone for our sins. Jesus Christ, as our brother, accepted willingly the awesome responsibility to suffer in the Garden of Gethsemane, give His life on the cross, and be resurrected so that we might overcome spiritual and physical death - that we might cleanse ourselves and make ourselves worthy and whole to be able return to God's presence again. I also know that we have living prophets on the earth. Just as prophets were revealed truths in the Bible, there have been other prophets who have received divine instructions from God. These prophets have written these revelations down, and we know them as scriptures. Through the prophet Joseph Smith God brought forth some of these writings of ancient prophets from the America Continent, and it is known as the Book of Mormon. I know these things because of the witness of the Holy Ghost, through the feelings in the my heart and the thoughts that come to my mind. I invite you to learn and search and discover your own knowledge of these truths by listening to the missionaries and other members of the church and listen to the spirit of God that will confirm these truths to you.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in the local community by serving as a treasurer of the Home Owners Association and serving at church in whatever capacity that is needed. My son and I visit two families in the church congregation on a monthly basis to develop a fellowship and unity with them to provide help if ever needed. I live my faith each and every day by trying to follow Jesus Christ teachings and do as he would do. I live my faith by spending time with my family and supporting them in their endeavors.
