Hi I'm Thomas Geary

I grew up in Idaho and joined the Navy and served as a corpsman for the United States Marine Corps.

About Me

My name is Thomas and I'm 24 years old and I have 3 sisters and two brothers. I have served active duty in the United States Navy for six years and before that I have recieved my high school dipoloma. My interests include basketball, shooting, running, boxing, paintball, surfing, hiking, traveling, and scuba diving. Right now I live in the beautiful state of Hawaii and I'm getting ready to serve a 2 year mission in the Kentucky Lousiville area (which I'm very excited about). Following those two years, I will be attending Brigham Young Univeristy Idaho where I'll be studying Animal Health and Veterinary Science.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's church. It is the only true church on earth and I also know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that The Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that my Redemmer lives and he loves everyone so much that he suffered the most unimaginable pain that could ever be comprehended so that we might live again. I also know that President Thomas S. Monson is the Lord's prophet on the earth today and that he leads and guides His church. I am a Mormon because I believe all of these things.

How I live my faith

Everyday I read the scriptures which include but not limited to The Book or Mormon, The New Testament, The Old Testament, Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price. I also pray to my Heavenly Father and do so in the name of Jesus Christ. My prayers are always answered. Throughout the week I attend activities that my branch sponsors which includes things like Barbeques, ultimate frisbee, institute, cultural nights and the list goes on.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Thomas Geary
Yes. This is the pinnacle moment in The Book of Mormon where it has been prophesied in the New Testament that the Lord would visit his other sheep. Show more Show less
