About Me

Hi my name is Thor, I am happily married to my best friend, I have a 5 month old boy and 5 stepchildren. I love to travel to new places and see new things, I love to be around water and go boating and waterskiing and to go snow skiing in the mountains. I to go mountain biking and hiking on trails to see the beauty of the nature all around us...I work in the car business in a big city, we rent hundreds of cars a day and I love to meet people from all over the world and to help start their vacation in a good positive way..

Why I am a Mormon

I moved out to the phoenix area 4 years to start a new life and to be closer to my parents who are starting to age and my Dad has alzheimers so my Mom could use some extra help. I had only been in town for a couple weeks when i drove by the Morman temple and as i was driving by this building that i knew nothing about i was noticing the beauty of the building and of the property and it is hard to explain but i felt a magnetic force pulling me towards this building and i felt a feeling of love and happiness all around it. The following night a i drove by this building i knew nothing about and there was a statue of Jesus at the front and the statue felt so real and that it was almost calling my name. The following day i drove by the Temple and had a very large feeling that i was suppose to stop here and see what this was, as i walked towards this building i had tears rolling down my eyes and the hairs on my arms were standing straight on end and i felt a tingling sensation in my bones and a heat in my chest...when i went to the front door the sister missionaries welcomed me in and said welcome to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints would you like to here about our amazing church and the rest is history...I have never looked back and i have never felt more joy in my entire 40 years of life..I walked into the baptismal waters on March 24,2007 and i thank God every day since.

How I live my faith

I live my faith knowing that God is real, and his commandments are real...I love and respect my Father in heaven and i want to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ..I get to work with the youth at church, i am working with the cub scouts, it is lots of fun and we get to go on outings to some cool places. it is great to go to church on Sundays and be around other people who are striving for the same things as you and we have met many new great friends.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

I am just amazed how much the Holy ghost has changed my life. I walked this earth my first 35 years of my life in darkness, not knowing which door to open to find happiness. When i was baptized and received the Holy Ghost i noticed the difference immediately, it was like turning on a light switch and a whisper in your ear on where to go..over the last 4 half years it has brought me so many miracles I cant even count them. It got me a great job, amazing friends, my beautiful wife. I know the Holy Ghost is my best friend, my protecter, it leades, guides, and directs my every move and has changed my life for the better that makes me weap with tears when I think about it. It is kind of like a cell phone directly connected to our Heavenly Father at all times for advice. Show more Show less
