Hi I'm Tim Rush

I'm a legal assistant. I play soccer with my friends. I speak Portuguese. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I see myself as a diverse person, and lately I have learned to be more cultural and accepting of others. Some of the things that I love to do are read, play super smash bros on Nintendo 64, play soccer, hang out with my friends, watch movies, and get to know new people. One of the most interesting things about me is that I for some reason remember really random things, like directions. I try to be very observant, but sometimes I over analyze things.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a very structured family. My family was built upon the principles of the gospel. Both of my parents' families were built on the same principles. I think I am a seventh generation member, meaning my family runs deep into the church. Personally though, my testimony has been one that grows more gradually rather then one major growth spurt. I can remember many experiences I have had with the Holy Ghost and my Savior, but there is not one specific event where I "found Jesus" or something along those lines. I have been very blessed to be born into the principles of the Church, where I could be baptized at 8 years old, where I could prepare to serve my mission in Porto Alegre Brasil, and where I can prepare now to get married in the temple and teach these same truths to my future family.

How I live my faith

My calling in the ward I serve in allows me to be in contact with the full-time missionaries of the Church a lot. I really enjoy missionary work. It is like I once told me friend, "the three major things on my mind at this point in my life are girls because I want to get married, school because I want to be successful, and missionary work because I want others to have the same blessings I have." This responsibility has helped me want to be a better person.
