Hi I'm Tim

I believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up I thought I would always live in the same state forever, but when I was 15 my family moved to Okinawa, Japan and I fell in love with international travel. I am currently majoring in International Studies with a minor in Russian at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I served a two year mission for the LDS church in Latvia where I learned to speak Latvian and a good amount of Russian. I love the people of Eastern Europe and hope to live among them someday. I love to play golf and any racquet sports including, but not limited to: tennis, racquetball, squash, ping pong, badminton, etc. I am considering earning a law degree when I finish with my undergraduate studies.

Why I am a Mormon

The church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ provide answers to so many of the questions that everyone thinks about. It is comforting to find peace and solace in this chaotic world. The example that Christ set is perfect and I know that as long as I follow it and encourage other people in my life to follow it as well, the world can only become a better place. I have chosen to make important promises to Heavenly Father, and I will never betray them because I know He would never betray me. I cannot deny the continual love that I feel on a daily basis.

How I live my faith

I live a pretty transient life so it is hard for me to get settled within a single congregation. While I am at school I have the privilege of being among many people my age and it makes for a great experience. No matter where I am, I always have the wonderful duty of performing "Home Teaching". It is where I go with a companion to teach and visit with other members of the congregation in their homes. It is a great opportunity to get to know new people and enrich each others' lives. The church is a great network of people living Christlike lives, and I feel privileged to be a part of it.
