Hi I'm Troy Gundersen

I grew up in Utah and have also lived in Arizona and South Korea. I own a prescription assistance company. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a member of the the church all my life, but I was converted when I was in high school. I now work in the IT department of the church. I love fitness and self-improvement. I love to play games with my family and experience new places with them.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in high school I had a light turn on inside me that made me want to follow gospel principles and as I did so, I gained a testimony that it is true ("If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine." John 7:17). I have had many experiences since that time that have testified to me that Jesus Christ is at the helm of this church and that, even with imperfect people in leadership positions, it's a spiritually healthy network with which to belong.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best person I can be. In our household we hold up a family creed of Love, Honor, Mastery and Wisdom. I don't claim perfection by any stretch of the imagination. I continue to work on weaknesses within myself and encourage others to do the same. I try to be a light and not a judge to others because I know I'm not without fault. I work with the scouts in my ward and encourage them to live with honor and built a strong work ethic. I work hard to let the light of Christ shine through me.
