Hi I'm Tim

I serve in the Navy as a Nuclear Engineering Laboratory Technician on a fast attack submarine and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm really into motorsports and I make that a large part of my hobbies. I am a new Dad of a precious baby girl! She was born at 30 weeks and spent some time in the hospital growing. Through the prayers of Christians of all denominations she made it through that ordeal completely unscathed! Currently I am serving our country on the US Navy instructing new sailors in Nuclear Chemistry and Radiological Controls so they can continue to defend our country after I finish my service. Right now my family and I are getting ready to move back to Hawaii to finish out my time in the Navy so I can transition my life on to something new. We look forward to going back to Hawaii for a second time because we love the sweet spirit there. So anyone out there that wants to talk cars or tech, just let me know! I'm your guy!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with two loving parents that taught me to love the Lord with all my heart. As I grew up I started to get some nagging questions in my head about religion. I know it was true but there had to be more. I went to a few other churches searching for answers but none seemed to really fit. Eventually I stopped going to church all together (though I still had faith in Christ).In 2005 I met my wife(didn't know she would be at the time)The first thing she told me when we met was," I'm a mormon and if you think I'm just some party girl you're barking up the wrong tree!" Immediately intrigued and a woman with "morals"I was more interested than ever to find out what made her so confident in what she believed in.We ended up sitting on the beach on the North Shore of Hawaii for days as she described the church for me.She then invited me over early one morning to watch the LDS General Conference and the messages the leaders of the church had spoke to me like no other. I then decided to meet with some sister missionaries who gave me the lessons about the church starting with the plan of salvation.What a beautiful message it was and it also answered many questions I had about what we are here for and the fate of those people who can't or didn't have a chance to invite Christ into their heart. Were they doomed in the afterlife just because chance saw fit to have then born somewhere where Christianity was not? This church was the only one that had those answers and the answers made since if we have a loving and just Heavenly Father. I prayed and prayed about it because this was the last church I think my parents wanted me to join, but I got my answer. Despite my family being upset at first, I knew the choice was right and even though I am still the only member.My parents see my life and the example I set for my siblings and they are accepting of my choice and maybe one day they will make the same choice I did. here is so much more I could say but that is the jist of things

How I live my faith

I served in my ward as the mission leader having never served a mission for the church. It was very rewarding! I got to coordinate members and other non-members going to see a special concert by Gladys Night!
