Hi I'm Tom

I am a husband, business owner, avid skier, a tennis player, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of a family of 8, my family means the world to me, I love my wife, and find the greatest joy in serving her, we do not have kids yet but we enjoy spending time with our nieces and nephews. I love to learn and read inspiring books. I get the greatest thrill skiing during the early morning hours on a beautiful mountain just after a fresh dump of snow! I like to think that I am a champion at tennis, but my friends might say otherwise. I take pride in my work ethic, and enjoy serving others.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a family were our Mom and Dad raised us in the Mormon faith. At the age of 5 my Mother passed away, and I remembered so vividly the day after, my Dad telling us the news of our moms death, he then promised us that because of the the love of God, his plan of happiness, and the Atonement of Jesus Christ we will one day get to live with our mom as a family again. Even today, I remember so crystal clear the impression that over came me when my dad shared this promise with us, it was as if God himself was in the room wrapping his arms around me and saying that everything is going to be ok. Because of this experience, it made me ponder the purpose of life and what God wants for me, with many years of praying, searching the scriptures, and striving to live a good life, I have come to know that the Mormon Church, officially called "The Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints" is the true Church of Jesus Christ today which answers all questions as to were we came from, why we are here on earth, and what God has in store for us. While other churches teach of Christ, and base there facts from stories of the Bible and talk about Prophet and Apostles, this church was establish by Christ and has the same priesthood Authority that he gave to Peter in the New Testament and lead today by a living Prophet and Apostles. I know this is true by the same way I new that night at age 5 that what my dad said was true. by the power of the spirit. Because of this Gospel I have a perfect knowledge of Gods plan, and my purpose of life. Every day I strive to live up to the standards that God expects from us as his children.

How I live my faith

Everything I am and what I represent is because of the gospel of Jesus Christ, how I conduct business, how I interact with other in public, and how I treat my family is a reflection of my faith. I am not perfect, in fact I am very aware of my weakness, but I strive to follow the example of Jesus Christ and to do what he would do if he were in my shoes. The Gospel of Jesus Christ gives me hope in a world of uncertainty, despite all the challenges I face, I know that everything will be ok because I am on the Lords side. I love to serve in the church, right now I am a sunday school teacher and I find great joy in sharing my testimony of Christ with others.
