Hi I'm Tom

I´m from Tetonia Idaho. I like small town stuff, i like knowing everyone you pass by in the truck. i like having fun. im a mormon.

About Me

im from teton valley idaho. i grew up in a small town called alta. which is in wyoming. we moved to idaho, same valley, so when we made the move nothing really changed. still went to school in the same place. i went to school in driggs, with about four hundred other kids. grand targhee ski resort was in my back yard so skiing and snowboarding is what i did growing up. that and riding horses. we slowly upgraded to paintball guns, snowmobiles, motorcycling/ dirtbiking, hunting, and swimming up at the lake when i get the chance. i loved playing football, and having fun with friends and family. its a small town so we are pretty friendly, we wave to almost everyone who passes by. i have three crazy brothers. i cant believe none of us died with all the activities we did. we have fun when we do something semi planned and semi constructive. either way its a blast.

Why I am a Mormon

im a mormon because i converted to the gospel. i was born in the faith of my fathers, so my parents are mormon. that doesnt mean that i automatcally believed in the book of mormon or joseph smith, or anything pertaining to realigion really. i had to convert in my own way at my own time. i had a lot of good examples around me. my parents took me to church every sunday, even though i didnt always want to go. i had a lot of good experiences growing up. i started really paying attention when i was around thirteen years old. i really started feeling what was being said at church. once i started listening for the holy ghost i was able to find it. i knew all the stories of the book of mormon, they pretty much gave the same lessons every year. i was a member of the church but i figured i need to find out what this is. i didnt have a big revealing moment. it came line upon line, precept upon precept. i read the book of mormon, prayed about it and asked God. then kept my eyes open. when i did that i was able to better see Gods hand in my life. he answered my prayers and i know that this is Jesus Christs church. i have seen alot of miricles happen. especially through priesthood blessings. im greatful for good parents, brothers and friends to keep me in line. im greatful for Gods hand in my life on a day to day basis, keep your eyes open. im greatful for the priesthood and the miricles that happen by worthy men to hold Gods authority. im greatful for the covenants we can make with heavenly father through temples. im greatful for revalation and the two way communication that still exsist through prayer and a prophet in the last dispensation.

How I live my faith

im serving a mission in the tulsa oklahoma mission. it covers parts of arkansas, missiouri and kansas as well. i keep the standard missionary schedule. i love to learn about the gospel, and love sharing the things i hold a little closer to my heart. i live my life seeing people change, for real! i live my life on a bike, in a car, on foot and occasionally in a room. occasionally when im in that room you can see conversion. you feel like the holy ghost is so tangible you could reach out and touch it. its in you and around you. your companion can feel it and the person your sharing this with can feel it. the emotions are running high and your all looking at each other wondering if they can feel it to. something just pricked the heart of the investigator and they caught it, the truth bomb just went off. its conversion and i get to watch it happen.
