Hi I'm Tom Merrill

I am 30, a husband, a father of three beautiful children, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for over seven years. I have a four year old daughter, three year older daughter, and one and a half year old son. I love spending time with my wife and kids as well as my direct family. We enjoy the outdoors, watching movies, and just plain having fun.

Why I am a Mormon

The church has been in my family for generations before me. Growing up I always attended meetings, mutuals, and any other activity. At the age of 19 I had the opportunity to serve a mission in Santiago, Chile. I continue to follow the gospel because of the family-centric environment. I love the promise and ability I have to spend eternity with my family and want to do everything I can to make sure that happens.

How I live my faith

Currently I am the secretary in the young mens presidency in our ward. I enjoy spending time with the young men, going on campouts, and helping them prepare to serve missions and to prepare to become worthy husbands and fathers. Every Sunday it is like a trip to the past as I seem some of the same characteristics in the young men that I once had. I hope that I can help them make the most of themselves and continue strong in the gospel.
