Hi I'm Troy

I am a husband and father of 4 children. I make movie screens. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I did not grow up in the best circumstances as a kid, but the Lord was mindfull of me and guided me into a loving home. I was raised by my Grandparents who loved me and taught me how to be a better person. I have always tried to live my life by the example that they set. My Grandparents have been gone for many years now, but not a day goes by that I don't benifit from their teachings. While my own children never knew them, somehow through me and how I live my life, they are blessed by the love of my Gradparents. We love to camp and go to the beach as a family. Those memories are very special to me. I want my children to grow up knowing their Mom and Dad love them. That they are safe and have food to eat and clean clothes, and that their home is place of peach a safety from the world outside. I feel a great sense of cofidence and satisfaction that the Lord has watched over my little family. That He loves us and blessed us. And eventhough there are struggles and challenges, we are happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with the moto in my home to "Do unto others, before they do it unto you". We were never happy and always moving. I grew up fast, I had too. While I went through it, I always felt like there was something missing. when I heard about Jesus Christ and his Gospel, there was so much comfort in it. I felt like I had come home after a long journey. I knew I did not want to be like my parents. They were the best bad examples anyone could ask for. I saw how they lived and how their lives were and how empty they were. I knew I did not want to be like them when I grew up. I was a sponge soaking it all in. I was almost offened initally when I heard more about the church. I had already made up my mind about a lot of things. And when I heard that many of the Gospel truths were same, I thought "hey these are my own", "how can they claim these truths, that I though we so personal and mine alone?". Then I realized exactly that! these were truths, and they were not mine, but they were my Heavenly Father's and he had already blessed me with a testmony of the divinity of the Savior Jesus Christ and all these pieces fit the puzzle I had already started, and they completed the picture.

How I live my faith

I am not going to pretend that I know all the answers or that I do everything right all the time. But I work hard to do my best. I know where to go for that answers to life's tough questions, and it has made all the difference in my life. As I look back over different parts of my life, and now my family. I can see how much my Heavenly Father loves me and has guided my footsteps. This feeling of gratitude has driven my to help and serve others. I am always looking for ways to help and give of my time and talents where I can to show this gratitude. The Boy Scoout program is one way I have been able to help and really feel like all the challenges I went through were not for nothing. I have been able to relate to some of the young men and break down the barriers and help them understand how good they are and how much they matter. Sometimes I feel like I learn more from them, than they do from me. But when you see a young man turn his life around from one of pain and uncertainty, to one of purpose and direction and good choices, it makes it all worth while.
