Hi I'm Troy

I'm a husband and father of four wonderful children. I grew up in California. I'm a small business owner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a relatively new member of The Church (less than 2 years as a member). I enjoy being an entrepreneur and have had several business ventures, both successful and unsuccessful. I love spending time with my family which includes my wife, 3 boys ages 12, 9 & 7; and one girl age 5. We go to the beach quite often. I love playing first person shooter video games. I'm a small business owner. I am an assistant den leader in Cub Scouts. I'm a avid sports fan, and enjoy sports of all types. I originally pursued a career in law enforcement, but eventually went to work in the telecom, oil & gas and defense sectors.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been kicking the tires of churches for the last 10 years. Initially I wanted to find a church to ensure my kids had the opportunity to be raised in an environment that would afford them a solid foundation of ethics, an attitude of gratitude and to provide acts of service. In finding The Church, I quickly realized that my Heavenly Father wanted those same things for me. After much research, much prayer and discussion with my spouse, we came to realize that The Church is in fact a Christ centered church. I believe The Church functions as a group of individuals, within a set of commonly accepted principles, to help each member of the church have success in all aspects of their lives. Why I'm a Mormon...because not only do we take care of our own members, but we actively send out Missionaries to allow them to accept the offer that our Heavenly Father has extended to them.

How I live my faith

I do the best I can to live in the word. I fail regularly, but have the peace of mind knowing that Heavenly Father loves me, and welcomes me home because I have done what he has asked of me. I do my best to walk in his word and be an example to others in all aspects of my life.
