Hi I'm Tony

I'm a medical student, I love learning, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California, but I was raised in Alabama. I love to play all sorts of sports. More specifically i enjoy soccer, dorkfishball, running, and biking. I have four sisters that are all older than me and I love my family. I'm currently serving a mission in the Arizona Mesa Mission. I enjoy helping out other people and helping them become happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I decided to find out if what I had been taught was true. I decided to read the Book of Mormon and pray to my Heavenly Father to see if it was true. Not only that but i have seen the blessings that come from following the commandments of God. Both of my parents converted from Catholicism. My mom and her family converted when she was young. My dad found the church when he was 32 yrs. old after running into some missionaries on the street. I went to a school where i was one out of a few that were LDS. I was able to see early on how certain decisions brought consequences. I realized that following the gospel I saw a lot more blessings. I also saw how doing the opposite brought terrible consequences. It was through these experiences that i really wanted to know if this was true. I now know that it is true and it has made me who i am today. I have become closer to my Heavenly Father and that Jesus Christ is my savior and every day that I live the gospel my faith in them grows.

How I live my faith

I'm currently dedicating two years of my life to be a missionary for the church. I have the opportunity to help others try to find the joy that i have found as i have lived the gospel. There is nothing better than helping others know that God does love them and wants something better for them and showing them that through Christ their burdens can be lighter.
