Hi I'm Thomas

I'm from Arizona, I like making people laugh and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a dad working full time and going to graduate school. At 39, it's taken me a few years to figure out what I want to do when I grow up. I'll let you know when I finally do. With three kids who are active and a wife who is finishing up her bachelor's degree, we keep pretty busy. I used to play a lot of golf and softball and go to the movies, but I really enjoy spending any spare time I have with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it's true. I know it and can't imagine going through life trying to do it all alone. It's everything to me to have one thing that re-centers our family on a weekly basis. Having something that we all believe in means that no matter what grades the kids get, what teams they make or don't make, or what jobs we have; we all have each other for eternity. That's what I'm fighting for.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith every day. I really enjoy home teaching because it gives me the chance to visit other families and see if there is anything we can do to help. Right now I get to work with the 14-16 year old boys. We do scouting, Duty to God, and other activities that help our young men learn how to be good husbands and fathers. It gives me the opportunity to teach and that is something I love.
