Hi I'm Todd

I'm a Mormon because my parents are Mormon. I'm still a Mormon because I have learned God has expectations and a plan for me.

About Me

I enjoy the outdoors, specfically flyfishing on lakes or rivers, salt or fresh water it doesn't matter. I have three kids and a wonderful marriage of 17 years. I work in the high tech industry. We have lived both in the US and UK. I have had the opportunity to visit countries around world, I am always amazed at both the similarities we all share as well as our different cultures and cuisines.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as member of the church. In time I had a deep desire to learn for myself if the things I learned at church were real. I had thought they were but I didn't know. Was there a God and is He really my father, is Jesus really my Saviour, did the things proclaimed to be witnessed by Joseph Smith really happen, is the Book of Mormon really scripture. When I seriously considered, studied, made my own decisions and prayed to know if the decisions I had made regarding these questions were correct I received an undeniable answer through the Spirit that they were. The conclusions I had made was that there was a God, Jesus was my Saviour, Joseph Smith was a Prophet and the Book of Mormon is scripture. As I have worked to elimate my shortcomings, perform service and helped others to know the things I know, the Spirit expands my ability to understand not only the natural world but my relationship with God, Jesus, the Holy Ghost and the rest of humanity. This understanding reinforces my hope, brings clarity and patience in tough times, and perspective of why we are here.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to look after and encourage members to live up to the promises (covenants) they have made with our Heavenly Father. I'm in charge of teaching, building unity and organizing the men of our congregation in caring for the families of the congregation and each other.
