Hi I'm Thomas Wilkes

I grew up in Virginia. I am an Eagle Scout. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to hike, mountain bike, and rock climb. I am big into scouting and earned my Eagle Scout rank at the age of 14. I love to read! Fantasy and Si-fi are my favorite genres. I am going to BYU Utah to become a mechanical engineer.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member since birth. I love how the Church supports the scouting program and the sense of welcome and family within the church. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and is a companion to the Bible.

How I live my faith

I help with as many service projects as I can. I love working at scout camps and teaching merit badges. The Summer of 2012 I worked at the Goshen Scout Reservation in Virginia as a leather work instructor. I am always willing to help with Eagle scout projects.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Thomas Wilkes
The only way I know how to find out if the church is true is to read the Book of Mormon and to then, with sincere disire, pray and ask Heavenly Father if it is true. Show more Show less
