Hi I'm Tom Gordon

I'm a contractor, I grew up in various parts of the country because my dad worked for the park service.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to build things and working with my hands. I enjoy my family of 6 children and my wifes 3 kids. Between me and my wife we have 13 grand kids and 2 on the way. I'm married to my second wife after my first wife of 35 years passed away and count myself very lucky to have a second chance at love. I grew up in the national park system my dad was an archeologist and we live on several national monuments and feel lucky to have had such an neat experience. I started out as a framer/carpenter and I'm now a self employed general contractor. I enjoy nature photography even though I don't have any real training. I like sunrises and sunset in cool locations. I like to travel and explore new locations. I really like the beach, ocean, and the mountains etc.

Why I am a Mormon

I'ma Mormon because I have prayed and recieved a personal witness as to its correctness. I have been given strength by this knowlege many times in my life especially when things get tough. Just recently when my first wife passed away I felt the comfort of my saviour and felt the prayers offered by many of my frinds and family. Then I was blessed to meet my present wife who shares my strong testimony of the atonement. I know as more trials come I will be able to count on Jesus Christ strong arm to help me through and know that Heavenly Father is aware of me and is in control. I know this without a doubt and know if anyone wants to know for themselves all they have to do is pray sincerly to Heavenly Father and search it out and they too can get there answer. The same is true for The Book Of Mormon. Read it then pray about and you to can experience the happiness that I have.

How I live my faith

I'm presently a missionary for the church. I like to witness those learning for the first ime about Jesus Christ and how he wants us to live. To see the changes that come over them as they learn for themselves the lessons the saviour teaches us. To experience for the first time the love that Jesus has to offer. I have also worked in the Young Mens programs and have gained lifelong friends from that experience. Watching them go on missions, get married and start there own families and mature into strong men. I know if you will but pray you will also be able to find the joy and security that I have! I know that after this life we can be joined together with our loved ones united forever. That you can find peace and happiness in this life no matter what it throws at you. Jesus knows you personally and he wants you to be happy.
