Hi I'm Tim

I grew up in Reno, Nv. I hunt, ride horses, and play sports. I'm a bit of a redneck and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I always had animals growing up. I grew up raising horses, cattle, and sheep and was a member of a 4-H club for all my childhood. I love to hunt, fish, and do anything outdoors. I am a very physical person and I like to stay fit. Wakeboarding and baseball are my favorite sports. I am an eagle scout and I enjoy working on my vehicles.I am a college student trying to get by.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon but fell away from the church in high school when my family was going through a rough time. I did a lot of things that I am not proud of but I do not regret making them. They gave me life experience and helped me realize and understand why this church is true. The rules and life style of this church are not around just to keep you from having fun. They actually give you more freedom. Because we do not participate in a lot of social things like drinking we never have to worry about making poor choices while we are drunk. That is how it works. No one forces you follow these rules but I am a Mormon and I chose to follow them because they bring me actual lasting happiness

How I live my faith

I have slowly become more active in my church but the more I do the more I love it. I try my best to go to church every Sunday and to do service for all those in my ward and community whenever they need it. But most importantly I live my faith through my actions. I try to be an example and a friend to everyone. Helping other is what brings me closer to my Heavenly Father.
