Hi I'm Billy Tatom

I like dancing, I like music, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old. I have been a member since I was a child, and I think the church is amazing. I'm prepping for my mission, and hoping to go on it within the year. I'm all bout going to dances, be they swing or break dancing kind of parties. I feel that dancing is just another way to express my happiness and love for this world. This then leads into my joy for music. Music is another great way to express happiness, and one of my favorite parts of church is being able to sing Hymns.

Why I am a Mormon

I was a member of the church since childhood, but I was inactive for most my life and I didn't know I was a member. The reason for my inactivity was my mother had stopped going to church when I was little, I don't know why though, I haven't asked her. That's in the past. During my middle and high school years I moved around a lot, mostly around Oregon, the last time that I moved was the end of my sophomore year in high school. This is when I met my friend Caleb, he was and still is an active member. Then, during our senior year in high school I got to talking to him about church, and this is when I decided to attend with him. When he brought me to church I realized that the one he brought me to was the same exact church I was baptized in. When I realized this I knew I had to start going back to church. I started going every now and then, but when I graduated high school and went off to college I started going all the time to the singles branch. I can now happily say that a few months later I am a full time member and I love every minute of it. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savoir and that Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us to return to him someday. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and that the Holy Ghost helps us teach all these things to whom ever asks for help.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday, bless and pass the Sacrament, go to Family Home Evening, go to Institute and invite others to do the same. I always try to find time for the missionaries when they ask to teach me a lesson, and they're the ones who actually had me make this profile. I also pray everyday and study the scriptures every chance I get.
