Hi I'm Thomas Rodriguez

I grew up in Murray Utah, I have two sisters and my parents. I love playing soccer. And im mormon!

About Me

I live in Murray Utah, I have two sisters. One that is older then me and one that is younger. Then I have my two great parents. i have always loved playing soccer and i played more my high school. then i played in college. But when it was time for a mission i had to leave it all behind to serve the Lord. i am serving my mission in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Before my mission i have recieved lots of blessing from this gospel and from keeping the commandments. I never relized how great my life has been because of this gospel. When i see peoples lives without the gospel i relize how blessed i am. And it makes me want to share it with as many people as i can. so they can have the same joy that i feel from this gospel. I see lots of peoples lives and see things they are struggling with and i know that this gospel can help them so much!!!! this gospel can help anyones live. Thats whats so amazing about it. i cant wait to keep sharing the gospel with people so they can feel what i feel.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that god is our loving heavenly father and that he sent his son to die for us so that when we make mistakes we can repent of the things we have done wrong and become clean again. I know that they only way to live with god again is through this church. I know that Joseph smith translated the book of mormon and that he is the prophet of the restoration. I know that the book of mormon is a true book and that it is another testament of jesus Christ and by reading it we can get closer to heavenly father. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet on the earth today and that he receives revolution from God to guid this church on the right path. I know that the priesthood has the power to do all things and that with faith anything is possible.

How I live my faith

I live my faith the best I can and by trying to be an example to everyone. I want other people to see the way I live and want to know what makes me so different and why I am the way I am. By being a good example I will be able to bring lots of people into the gospel and be able to bless there lives. Right now I am living my faith by serving a mission and trying to bring others into the gospel! Other ways I have lived my faith is by serving in church callings before my mission. I served as the Deacons corm president and Teachers corm president. I was also the first assistant to the bishop when I was a priest. Right before I left on my mission I was a ward missionary and would go out every Tuesday and try to find people for the missionaries to teach. It was a great experience for me and has helped me so much while being on a mission. I try to live and keep all the commandments but sometimes it can be difficult. But I know as I try my best the Lord is happy with what I am doing. Also one way to live your faith is to always try and improve. The gospel that I live doesn't demand perfection immediately it just asks that we continually progress each and every day. If we do that we are getting closer to our heavenly father. I try and improve my live each and every day so that I can be the best I can. Even just a little change each day will help me so much in my life and make me a better person and help me to be the person that I want to be.
