Hi I'm Tim

I live in Saratoga Springs Utah, love to ski, play video games, sing and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a relatively new father raising my one year old daughter with my wife. I recently found a full time job after searching for almost three years. The struggle to find a good job while starting a family has been a defining experience for me because it taught me that I'll do anything to provide what my family needs. I love being a father, love it. There is very little in the world that makes me happier that seeing my daughter's smiling face and hearing her laugh. I love watching my wife grow as a mother and a person through the experiences parenthood brings. While it definitely isn't an easy job, parenting has been great. I also enjoy music, singing or listening to it. I can appreciate just about any kind of music except for really twangy country and harsh rap music (I just see the draw). I'm a self proclaimed geek. I love to play around on my computer, open it up to add new hardware or just check on the bits I already have in there. As far as outdoors are concerned I do run occasionally but skiing is my passion. I started when I was four years old and haven't been able to kick the habit since.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of His church because it provides certainty and direction in uncertain times. As I follow the teachings of Christ I feel better about myself, my life and what I do every day. My family is very important to me. I don't know where I'd be in life without my wife. I know that if I live my life right I can live with her and our daughter forever. I know that the family is central to God's plan for us and now that I am a father I can see why. I have learned more from being a dad about love and patience than any classroom or job training could ever provide.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by looking out for ways to help others. Sometimes it's the small things like smiling and saying hello to a stranger I pass on the street or helping someone pick up papers they dropped. Other times it's bigger things like helping someone move into their house. The important thing to me is to be actively looking for ways to help. You never know who is really in need of a happy face or a helping hand.
