Hi I'm Tad

I grew up in Indiana, Arizona, and Georgia. I'm a student, a swimmer, and a traveler. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I read, study, invest, play a little piano and violin, and eat exotic foods. I generally spend time wake boarding, camping, hiking, fishing, and snowboarding. Golfing and competitive swimming are my preferred sports, and when I get a break I can't help but travel across the continent and explore the vastness of what's around us all.

Why I am a Mormon

There are a lot of philosophies in the world. A whole lot of books. An infinitive number of thoughts and ideas. Some make sense; many do not. There are so many things to read and so many schools of thought to explore, but it really all comes down to whether or not religion is true or made up. And if religion is true, which religion is correct? If one religion and way of thinking on the earth is true, it is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Kant's categorical imperative. The church that works the best and nourishes its followers most and makes the most bad or lost or discouraged people into new, changed, and caring, and selfless people must be the most correct church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is that church. Nowhere else will one find a religious following that turns its members into selfless, giving, caring, supportive, wise, and strong people than this church. Everyone in the world would become a better person in any and every way by reading the Book of Mormon and abiding by its counsel. No one person can criticize, reject, or ridicule this church without first reading the Book of Mormon and finding the answer for themselves.

How I live my faith

I am serving an LDS Spanish-speaking mission in Southern California.
