Hi I'm Todd Tomlinson

I was born in Phx Arizona and grew up living in Illinois, Alabama, Arkansas & Utah. I have been a Mormon my whole life.

About Me

I am a husband to an outgoing and awesome wife who loves missionary work and helping others. I have grown up in the Church serving others my whole life and have loved every minute of it even though at times it was challenging. We have two daughters and 8 grand children (6 boys and 2 girls) who are all active and participating in the Church. I enjoy spending time with my wife running errands or just hanging out. I like playing golf, basketball, baseball and frisby and all things with the grnadkids. Since being married in the SLC Temple, we have lived in four different states, lived in 9 different wards and have enjoyed serving in leadership callings since I was in my early 20's.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Church really does have answers for all of our challeneges in life, through the Book of Mormon and other scriptures, I have received direction and inspiration that has blessed me temperally and spritually my whole life. I have had the opportunity to share my testimony with others and each time I do, I have my testimony reconfirmed. There is nothing that makes me feel better than when I read the Book of Mormon each morning before starting my day, it brings insights and understanding for me as I go through my day. I have also tried to follow our Prophet's council over the years as they have challenged us to be better, serve others and be good member missionaries through word and example. The Church is true, the Book of ormon is true, Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet for the world today. Joseph Smith is a prophet and I know he saw what he said he saw, he heard what he said he heard and lived his life in a Chirstlike manner, going about doing good and blessing the lives of others and we are beneficiaries of him to this day. Our Savior lives and leads this Church through revelation to our Prophet Thomas S. Monson and the other leaders of this Church. I love that one of Pres. Monson's goals in life was to "lift up the sad and make someone feel glad" as this is what we have been asked to do.

How I live my faith

By being the person I can be and through my example, others will want to know more about the Church.
