Hi I'm Tim Checketts

About Me

I love to run, I did it all throughout Highschool. I ran Cross Country and Track. I like to swim, I swam for 3 years for my Highschool team. All throughout Highschool I sang in choir. I also did Show Choir for 2 years and a few other choral things. I have I big family, nine siblings and two parents. Three of my siblings were adopted from Nicaragua and I love them very much. I graduated early from Highschol and did a Semester of College in Idaho. I am currently serving a 2 year mission for Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read most of the Holy Bible in fact I'm working on finishing it right now. I have also read the Book of Mormon many times. By reading both of these books along with praying to know if Book of Mormon is true I felt the Spirit testify that the Book of Mormon is true. By coming to know that both these book that testify of Christ are true through the Spirit I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christs' church. So I guess that's why I'm a Mormon.
