Hi I'm Tom Mumford

I am an attorney, a skier, a banjo player, a Democrat - and most important of all - I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The greatest blessing in my life is my wonderful wife and our 4 boys. I have also been blessed with loving parents and siblings. I enjoy practicing law because I have the opportunity to help other people by solving challenging problems and advocating for fairness and justice. I enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, boating, golfing, and playing sports, especially soccer. Music gives life deeper meaning and beauty. I play the guitar and banjo, and I recently started playing the bassoon again. I am interested in public policy, history, and international affairs.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I strive to follow Jesus Christ, and I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is his living church and gospel on the earth. I have come to this belief through a combination of scripture study, prayer, and spiritual experiences. I am very grateful to God for this knowledge. Serving a mission when I was 19 was an important part of my spiritual development, and being married in the temple was a great culminating experience which has blessed our family.

How I live my faith

I try to live a good Christian life. Sometimes I make mistakes and I have to repent. We all do. I enjoy working with the youth in the church and I have served as a scoutmaster, teacher, and counselor to our bishop. I learn a lot from my brothers and sisters in the church, and I value the friendship and love in that community.
