Hi I'm Tommy Ferrin

I grew up in Elko, Nevada USA. I lived on an Indian reservation for 13 years. And i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 25 Years old. I grew up in Nevada. My Dad left when I was 16, so I quit school & went to work to help my Mother support my 5 younger siblings. We moved to Utah when I was 18 so that we could be closer to my Mom's relatives, & so that we could have more income options. When I was 21 my Mother remarried, so I went back to school. I earned my High School Diploma when I was 24. Some of my interests are watching movies, reading Fantasy novels, learning about History, hanging out with my Friends, hiking, riding 4-wheelers & spending time with my Family. Some of my hobbies are collecting Coins, Bionicles (Lego products), Final Fantasy & Pokemon video games, & Super Hero Movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon church. I went to church with my family every week, & just did what I my parents said. When I was about 15 1/2 my parents divorced & my mom was left as the sole provider for 6 children. I started to wonder if God loved me or my family, or if he was even there. So I started to study & search the scriptures, & to pray to know if he was even there. Then one day as I was praying I got this overwhelming feeling that God was there & that he did love me. After that I started to see all the many things that God had blessed me with that I had taking for granted my whole life.

How I live my faith

I am currentley Serving a mission in Canada for the Mormon Church (The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints). Before that I had served in my local boy scout troop & helped in neiborhood service projects where I lived. I do my best to help those around me such as, helping the elderly people in my cummunity clean up their yards, participate in activitys & service projects headed by the church, trying to see the good in everyone (which is hard somtimes) & just doing my best to live a good honest life & by being a good example to others.
