IM IN!! my hopes for the future are to find a career in being a firefighter and helping people in need. starting a family and teaching them what my wonderful parents have taught me.. I worked as a Janitor, a bagger/ checker at a grocery store/ Landscaper and basically whatever else i could. In High School i was a LaCrosse/Football, Track. Student Government, Choir guy that just tried to have fun and be involved in anything that i did and still do. Im serving in california Carlsbad speaking spanish and i wouldnt change this experience for the world... Before my mission i was a student at Dixie State College as a recruter and studying to find out what i wanted to do. just going with the flow and loving life with everything that i could.. trying to find the positives in all of the negative things life throws at you.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon.. Well as a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints.. I have been able to look back and see the mistakes from the past but with the light of Christ, be able to see the Light up ahead and feel of his love and guidence for me personaly. I have been able to come to have my own testimony of the reality of our Savior Jesus Christ and Know that he did die for me. As I have come to realize the truth of who I really am, i have been able to think of the example of a rock in a river. We have rough edges and some parts that arent the most admirable charactaristics that we all have but with the atonement of Christ and the actions that we take to accept his atonement we are starting to be made smooth with the current of the river( life trials) and with time with our own lives we are started be be shaped into something that can be polished and smooth and for us to try to be like our savior Jesus Christ.. The question again.... Why am I a Mormon... Because I know that the Atonement is real and that Christ and our father in heaven can shape us into the things that he needs us to be. so that we might be able to help others envision the atonement in there own lifes as well.. I love the Gospel of Jesus christ and for the blessings it has brought into my own life and for my family.. I have seen the blessings that come from being a member of the church and trusting in God.. This is why i am a mormon.

How I live my faith

I life my faith by trying to be a friend to everyone I come in contact with.. even though some people think im wierd for walking up and down the streets and just saying hello to random people to make a new friend. For others its werid but for myself.. its enjoyable.. Also as a Missionary for the church i try to mirror the savior everyday and try to act as he would to Help serve and preach the gospel.. and do what ever possible thing i can to help out.. Living a life as the savior lived is impossible to me sometimes, but even though we all have faults and shortcomings.. that is when we are able to become closer to him and become more like him as well! How do i live my faith as a member of the church... By being myself and not trying to immitate someone else.. because im tommy nudd and that is what god wants me to be... I live my faith by having fun, being energetic and keeping my standards high and never lowering my flag.. its up and waving... why should i bring it down.. I Live my life by being me. and trusting in the lord in all of my doings in my own life..
