Hi I'm Todd

I love to work out, I love spearfishing, I dip little Caesars pizza in root beer, I come from a family of 11, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 22 years old and come from a family of 11. My biggest hobby right now is spearfishing and I love to play all sports like; volleyball, soccer, football, and baseball. I am currently serving in the California Rancho Cucamonga mission, and I love spending time with family/ friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I grew up in the church all my life, and my parents were great examples of living the gospel. All the way up till about Jr. High I started making the wrong friends. I thought the only thing that mattered was to be cool and didn't care where that lead me. I still went to church most Sundays but only for the motion of it. I had always known the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the true church but I guess you could say I wasn't appreciating it for all its worth. After graduating High School I moved out with my friends and stopped going to church for some time. My life seemed empty during that time and I found myself longing for my family more than ever. I missed the structure and love of my family, the patience they had for me to finally make the decision to make the Gospel and Jesus Christ the center of my life. I moved back in with my family and started going to church regularly. I opened the Book of Mormon and read day/ night and started to feel how real the stories are, and how much of testimony builder it was to me. I found that small testimony that I had as a child starting to grow more and more. I found the spirit was very present in my life again and I often found myself smiling because I knew this was the happiness I truly wanted all my life. Over time my testimony grew, and I felt like I was getting to know the Savior more, and his plan of happiness not only for me but for my family as well. Now I know with a SURETY that this is his true church, and that Thomas S. Monson is our Prophet today.

How I live my faith

I try everyday to share what I know and believe with others because I have felt the real power of the Atonement in my life. He has helped me in every challenge of my life, comforted me in every time of need and for that I live everyday with a thankful heart for what the Savior did for me. The least I can do now is share this great joy with others and help them accept Jesus Christ as the Savior of the World.
