Hi I'm Trey

I am a tax accountant. I am a father and a husband. I love a good bicycle ride. I am a tenor and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated with my Masters of Taxation from the University of Denver. I received my bachelors of Accounting from Brigham Young University - Idaho.The most important thing in my life is my family both extended and immediate family. I love them all. The most memorable times have been with family. Not many can say that they enjoying being with the in-laws, but they are not considered in-laws, they are considered my second family. I have such a great wife who has been there through it all. All the ups and downs. She is my support. I have a love for music and love sharing my love of music with others. I have been playing the piano ever since I could touch the keys of the piano. Thanks to a mom that was willing to teach me and encourage me to continue on with the piano. I also love to sing. I always try to find opportunities to share my talents with others as that is what talents are for. Religion has always been an importance in my life. I was able to serve a full-time mission for the church and being able to help others have the knowledge of God and having God in their lives was the best thing ever.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it gives me a sense of direction. Being a mormon helps me in the different challenges that I have had in my life. The knowledge that God is my Heavenly Father that I can communicate with in prayer gives me great comfort to know that when I feel alone, I always have one that will listen to me. Being a mormon is great because we have commandments that we live by. These commandments have helped me be able to set high morals and standards. The Word of Wisdom helps me in order to stay health and not having any addictions that I must satisfy. Law of Chastity has helped me to remember the sacred nature of sexual relations should be between a man and a woman and only when married. This has helped me to stay out of trouble. I am a mormon because I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored through a prophet, Jospeh Smith and that the words of God continue to be preached by Prophets and apostles today. I know that God's prophet on this earth today is President Thomas S. Monson. I am grateful for a prophet that leads and guides the way today.

How I live my faith

Worshipping God and Christ is more than just going to church each Sunday. It is the way that you act around others. The way I live my faith is I always look for ways to serve people. Usually if there is a service project, I am there because I love to see people smile and make a difference in his/her life. Each and every month as a member of the Church, I have the responsibility with another member to visit families in our congregation. This is called hometeaching. This is a great program that allows the members to get to know each other and make sure that needs are being met. When hometeaching is done correctly, the needs of the members are met.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

I honestly believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today. Thomas S. Monson is that man today. I have had the opportunity to be in the same room as President Monson and it is amazing to feel the spirit that this man has when he walks into the room. Every time I see President Monson, the spirit re-assures me that he is indeed the prophet of God. He leads and guides God's church here on the earth today as Moses did. I am grateful there is a prophet on earth today to lead and guide us to know what God would have us do today. Following the counsel of Thomas S Monson leads to eternal happiness and will bring you closer to God. Show more Show less
