Hi I'm Tom

I grew up in Michigan and love the outdoors. I have worked in retail my whole life and love making people happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a District Sales Manager and worked in the sporting goods industry for almost 19 years and have been in management for over 30 years. I love to golf, go for a walk and spend time with my family. With 4 children and 6 grandchildren there is always something fun happening. I love the beauty of northern Michigan especially in the summer and fall months.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 4 my parents joined the church in Colorado and when we moved back to Michigan I only remember attending church in short spurts during my pre-teen years, but always had a belief and faith in Jesus Christ. I always felt His Love and protection through the Holy Ghost. Several times in my early adult years my path crossed with the church. I was 28, divorced and a single parent of a pre-schooler and realized that there was something missing in my life, it was the gospel of Jesus Christ and the fellowship of other Latter Day Saints. What a great blessing to be associated with others of the same faith with similar beliefs and values. I believe in God as my eternal father, in His Son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. I know that The Book of Mormon is true!

How I live my faith

I have been involved in my local community with various organizations, in the schools and in the local branch of our church. I have coached baseball, led blood drives and vote when possible. I have been involved in the Church Boy Scout programs as a committee member, scout master and camp counselor. I have been a volunteer with the local United Way as a committee member, board member, campaign chairperson and volunteer of the month. I was involved in the H.O.S.T.S. mentoring program in our middle school and a junior achievement volunteer for several years. I hepled raise money for scholarships and toys for families in need. Most of all I love visiting other members of our church with my wife and sharing the teachings of our church with friends.
