Hi I'm Thomas Roberts

I grew up in Oregon. I enjoy playing video games and I love to eat food! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I play the piano. I love to play volleyball and basketball! I also love to play video games (Starcraft, Bioshock infinite, Halo, etc.) I really enjoy being told a good story, whether that be through video games or books. I have two brothers. I have an awesome cat! I've been going to BYU before I went to my mission now San Diego, California.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have prayed to know that it is true. I've recieved my own personal witness that this is the true church of Christ. I was born into this church and my parents have taught me about all the basics of the church. However, I had to receive my own testimony about these things. So just like I'm telling people in San Diego to do now, I read through the Book of Mormon and prayed to know that it was true. I felt the spirit tell me that it was true, and so I know that it is possible for everyone to know of the truth.

How I live my faith

I'm going on a mission to San Diego. I'm willing to share my faith with those around me in order to better their lives! Probably the most important way I've found to share the gospel is just to live it. I've been asked why I don't drink or smoke and why I won't watch certain movies, and it has been great to know that I've been an example to people around me.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Thomas Roberts
In history, there was the protestant reformation, where people such as Martin Luther and John Calvin changed things about the Catholic church and formed their own religions. We believe that Joseph Smith restored the same church that Christ organized while he was on the earth. That's why we call it a restoration. Show more Show less
