Hi I'm Thomas Tran

I grew up in Florida and now live in Arkansas. I work at Office Depot as a Tech specialist. I am a happy Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Florida. At 18 i went into the Army. Got out 6 years later and went back to living with my mom. I found the love of my life and we got married. Neither one of us were active members at the time. We went through some crazy times and a lot of moving around to find a place where we could call home. Some of the placed we went to where not the greatest and we had some bad influences around us. In 2010 we moved to Arkansas away from all bad family influences to start a new. We started going back to church regularly and we started to live a cleaner life. I got my Melchizedek ordination, and started to do callings. In 2012 we got sealed into the temple along with getting our endowments. It was one of the single greatest days of our lives. (Love you Lula). We have 6 wonderful kids, with one preparing to go on a mission next year. I am currently working retail and will be in a management position soon. My wife is going to school for her CMA, and is going to work at the local VA. We always try to help our fellow men, knowing that we where helped.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it feels like I can do anything when I follow his teachings through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. And as bad as things might seem at times we always seem to make it through. We have seen other churches and religions and this is one of the best and most close knit churches ever. The other members are just so wonderful and I can't get enough of it. I have a testimony that I know with out a doubt that this is the true church. That God does have a plan for us, and that he wants us to live with him again someday. And through this church not only will that happen but we will be with the people that we love the most also. I love my wife and family with all my heart and soul and I take pride in the fact that I will live with them forever. Being a Later Day Saint has made us the wonderful people that we are today. And the fact that other people envy us and our love is just a wonderful thing. And this is the way to obtain that undying love.

How I live my faith

We are faithful members who love where we are. We are in a very good ward. My wife and I calling is helping with the family history center. We both do our home teachings and our visiting with some wonderful people. We get the most out of our religion because in put in as much as we can. We are firm believers of serving your fellow man. We take great pride in the fact that when we walk down the road that other people are saying that those are some really good people and I want to be like that some day.
