Hi I'm Tim

I play drums in a rock band. I work with juvenile deliquents. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in central Massachusetts. My family migrated to Utah while I was on a mission for the LDS church and I followed shortly after. I met my wife Aubrey here and we have been married for about a year and a half. I'm going to college and majoring in Social Work. I currently work at a juvenile detention center where I work with teenagers who have gotten in trouble with the law. At my job I monitor the behavior of the children and try to provide them with positive learning experiences to help change the pattern they are currently in. I play drums in a rock band with some friends and also enjoy reading comic books, working out and being with my wife, family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

My siblings and I were raised by our single mother. Despite the different challenges my family went through my mom was very strong in the LDS church and made sure we were always actively attending. I always felt it was very important because of the strong effort my mom put into raising us in the gospel. As I got older I realized from prayer and personal experiences that the way to being ultimately happy was to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I realized The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the church that Christ himself had established when He was on the earth and living the way I was always taught would guide me to become more like Christ than any other person or organization.

How I live my faith

I have found throughout my life that the times I have most actively lived the teachings of Christ were always the times when I was the happiest and most at peace. Because of this I work to live the commandments and be involved in my local congregation. Currently my wife and I work in the nursery where we watch the younger children while their parents can go to class or fulfill their own responsibilites. Every month a friend and I visit a handful of families in our congregation to make sure they are doing okay and have the things that they need.
