Hi I'm Tony Valle

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Tony, I am a proud husband and father. I spend my days as an aviation inspector, working on the family vehicles, cracking jokes, and checking up on the latest sports news. My biggest joys come with spending time with my family, whilst it's going to the beach, traveling the country, or heading out to the local creamery for some frozen yogurt.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 13 years old, my sister, then in high school, met a less active member of the Mormon church, which sparked her curiosity. She was able to schedule an appointment with the missionaries, and we began hearing the discussions. Shortly after I was invited to attend church were I met some good friends who influenced me for the better. With continual discussions I felt the spirit, and knew the gospel was true. My sister and I were then baptized, while my parents followed behind two years later. I am so grateful to have had the gospel during this time of my life. Growing up in the New Jersey/New York metropolitan area, drugs were very prevelent. From there I moved to South Florida where the party scene was heavy. Though I had many temptations in my life, with the gospel I was able to stay strong and make the right choices. After high school I served my mission in Salt Lake City, Utah. Everyday I spent on my mission was a testimony builder. For two years I had a constant reminder of why I joined this gospel. After my mission I attended BYU where I again was surrounded by the gospel and a great group of people. After BYU I went to Arizona where I met a wonderful girl. Shortly after we got married in the temple, and now raise a family together in the gospel. This gospel has truly changed my life.

How I live my faith

I have held many callings, I have taught the youth, as well as the men. I have been thankful for every calling I have ever had in this church.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

We are ordinary people that strive to live our lives as Jesus taught. As I go through my life I stop and analyze whether or not I am being a good example to others. And if there is anything I need to improve on I try to change it. Show more Show less
