Hi I'm Tim

I drive a cement mixer, am married, the father of four children, and a grandfather. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been driving a cement mixer for some 24 years now. I live in the USA, but have also lived in Spain for 2 years. I love fishing with my kids, especially our fly fishing camping trips. I might not be the best at it, or even get a line into the water, but I love spending time with my family doing almost anything, anytime that I can. I enjoy cooking, and eating, but not the cleaning up part... I also very much enjoy listening to my daughter as she plays the piano. My wife is my greatest blessing in my life, and my buddy. I am by definition, a family man. Not too long ago, I also became a grandpa, so things just keep getting better all of the time. I am a blessed man.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 14 years old, my family joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I remember thinking, "oh great, now I have to dress up and go to church on Sundays. What a bummer." Before long, I knew that it was where I needed to be. I have always looked up to my parents, and their wisdom, and this was once again one of those times. My life has been so richly rewarded because of my membership in the church. I have guidance, fellowship, and direction at every turn. I know that I have a savior in Jesus Christ, and a loving Heavenly Father, who watches over me and my family. No matter what problem that has or might befall me, I know that I have somewhere to turn, and someone there to help me through it. Having worked in the concrete business for a couple of decades, I know what makes a strong foundation, and how important it is to the integrity of any building. This church provides my family with such a foundation. It is what we, as loving parents, have built our family upon, and are so grateful that we have had it to help us along. I shudder to think what would have happened to my life, if my parents had turned those two young missionaries away from our door years ago. I love my membership in this great church.

How I live my faith

In our church, there are so many opportunities to serve. No one is paid, and it's all a volunteer effort. There are a lot of jobs, or callings to fill, and I have had numerous throughout my years in the church. I have been a scout leader, a youth instructor, a financial and membership clerk, a genealogist, and even a missionary for two years in Madrid and Northern Spain. I currently teach in the men's organization, and serve in our Sunday school presidency. Outside of the church, we also have a lot of opportunities to serve the communities surrounding us. We donate a lot of our time in the helping of others through soup kitchens, veterans programs, neighborhood clean up programs, and also during times of calamities, such as earthquakes, floods, and other natural disasters. It is so nice to help others, while helping yourself at the same time. If you are a worker, we have a place for you.
