Hi I'm Tim Howie

I Live in Calgary Alberta, the oldest of 4 children to two wonderful parents, I am a landscaper and I love to make people smile!

About Me

I am the oldest of four children, two brothers and one sister, I have the two greatest parents anyone could ask for that have reared me in righteousness and good work ethic and I commend them for remaining strong in the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout my life, for I am who I am today because of the gospel in my life. I know it, I live it, I love it! Fitness is another big part of who I am, I love to eat healthy and be active. Swimming, basketball, hiking, camping, tubing, cooking, baking, movies, studying the Book of Mormon and other scriptures daily and preaching/teaching the gospel are other things I love to do, as well as getting together often with friends and/or family members to play board games/card games or other games and so much more. I was born and raised a member of the church, I know i wouldn't be the man I am today without the gospel in my life. I'm a lifeguard/swim instructor, I enjoy going for walks and being adventurous, I also plan to travel the world to capture the beauty the world has to offer. I come from a family of 6: Mom, Dad, Me, 2 younger brothers and at the end of the line a sister, my family is the greatest.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a "mormon" or member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know that the Book of Mormon is true, i have prayed about it and recieved my answer (my witness) that it is the word of God and I know that Joseph Smith translated the plates from the ancient Egyptian language to English (and is now in 100+ languages). There is nothing better than being a mormon, pray to find out for yourself (it is really that easy) if the Book of Mormon is true so that you can enjoy the same happiness and joy in your life! Try it out, what are you waiting for :)

How I live my faith

Faith is an action word it is belief turned into practice, faith is like a seed, when you plant it or pursue a course of action you will see or rather you will feel and know whether the outcome is good. I study from modern and ancient scripture regularly, pray morning and night and often throughout the day, I attend church weekly on a Sunday and do try my best to be a better individual each day by aligning my will (desires) with the will of a Heavenly Father that loves all of us and by acquiring the attributes of Jesus Christ. These things all require effort and commitment, my faith is my life, my hope, my happiness and my peace. Everything good in life requires your best effort and a Church that does not require everything of you does not hold the ability and authority to bless you in every aspect if your life. How do I live my faith? I move.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Tim Howie
It is important to take care of our bodies because our bodies are temples of God. Our bodies are called temples of God becuase the spirit of God (the Holy Ghost) dwells within us, helping us to choose the right and guiding us so that we may be safe. The only way that our bodies can be guided or assisted is if we are "clean" and aware. By taking harmful substances like: tobacco, drugs or coffee/tea. We inhibit the influence that the Holy Ghost has on us. Show more Show less
