Hi I'm Tomi

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 5 daughters. I love hiking, camping, bike riding and swimming. Nothing is better than being outdoors in the mountains of Colorado with my family. We have raised chickens, ducks, goats, sheep, pigs and a bull. I am a nurse. I have been a substitute teacher and am an advocate for education. And, life is good!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was active in the church. As I grew, so did my testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I came to have relationship with my Savior and feel his love and interest in me personally. I have found answers to my prayers and comfort in my times of need. I know he lives! I know he loves all of his children. I know that he is not a silent or uninterested observer in our lives, but that he truly cares and can intervene in our lives. Most of all being a member of this church brings me great joy!

How I live my faith

As a nurse, I love being able to volunteer at a free clinic with many other health professionals in our community. I also love helping out at our children's schools. I am lucky enough to work with the 14-15 year old girls in our church, teaching lessons on Sunday, doing fun and crazy activities where we have a safe place to laugh and enjoy each others company. I was also able to be a camp nurse this summer bandaging wounds and putting on loads of ointment for mosquito bites. These activities are highlights in my life, I am a people person and love the opportunities I have been given to serve and know so many wonderful people!

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Because of the great truths that it contains. The bible has so much wisdom to offer. I love the stories of the great people of the bible. What incredible faith and courage I find in the stories of the Old Testament such as the stories of Moses, Daniel, Elijah, and my favorite Joseph and the coat of many colors. I also love the New Testament and the opportunity to sit at the feet of the Savior and hear his teachings and feel his love. I love the courage and convictions of Peter and Paul What a blessing to have these scriptures in our homes, to glean that wisdom and teach them to our children. They are an anchor in a turbulent world. Show more Show less
