Hi I'm Tim

I'm a Mormon. I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Boise, Idaho.

About Me

I am a husband and a father of three sweet, young girls. I'm a typical guy. I enjoy sports, the outdoors, spending time with family and friends. I'm a bit of a thrill seeker. I've been skydiving, bungee jumping, white water rafting, and perhaps most daring, raising three young girls :) I'm a sales rep for a major cell phone company. I love technology and being on the cutting edge and sharing with others what it can do and how it can help them in their lives. I love being inspired. Whether through a good book, a documentary, or just learning about those around me. I love hearing about someone's story of how they've overcome the odds and become successful. Whether in spiritual matters, business, sports, or whatever. I feel we all have so much potential and that the Lord wants us to be successful.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised LDS but didn't really gain a testimony of my own until I was on my mission. I knew that if I was going to go out and teach others about the Gospel of Jesus Christ then I would have to truly believe it for myself. I spent what seemed like hours each night praying/meditating on what I really believed, seeking an answer for myself. On the third night while I was praying to receive an answer I heard something. I'm not sure if it was audible or just a thought but what I heard was, "Tim it's true. You've always know it is true." And then I had an incredible, peaceful and warm feeling come over me and I knew I had received the answer that I was looking for. From that moment my testimony has grown as I've studied the Book of Mormon and the life of Joseph Smith. It would be easy to stay home and watch football each Sunday or spend my time doing something else but I can't. My testimony hinges upon the Book of Mormon. I know that it is true. And since it is true then everything else falls into place. I don't need to worry about "What about this?..." or "What about that?..." because if the Book of Mormon is true, then this is God's church and the heavens are not sealed, but God continues to reveal truths to His servants today. Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, Thomas S. Monson is God's prophet today, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is directly guided by Jesus Christ Himself.

How I live my faith

I am active in my local ward congregation. I serve as a counselor to a group of about 30 men who's ages range from the early 20's to the upper 40's. My responsibilities include visiting families, teaching Sunday school lessons, and volunteering my time to serve in a local cannery, helping others move, and other activities.
