Hi I'm Thomas

I grew up in Florida. I like to make music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Thomas. I am a twenty-something who has completed a few college courses. I enjoy listening to and making music. I come from a loving family of nine. I am so grateful for my parents and their example to me and the rest of my siblings.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Lord. I have felt His Love. I must share that Love if I am to keep it. I want to stand blameless.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the California Sacramento Mission. I love it. I have never made a better decision than to volunteer a short two years of my life to follow and serve the Savior Jesus Christ in this capacity. It is shaping my life, and I hope to influence others for good from the lessons I am learning while proselytizing in and around Sacramento California. Prior to my mission, I served as an executive secretary to the bishop (akin to a pastor) in my local congregation for young single adults. I love the chance to serve the Lord and His children.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

His name is Thomas S. Monson, and he's a smiley grandpa full to bursting with the love of Christ, our Savior. (Fun fact: my parents named me after him when he was then a member of the quorum of the Twelve Apostles.) I got to sing in the Conference Center with many other full-time missionaries for the Church in Salt Lake City, Utah once, and I remember distinctly the moment when President Monson and the other members of the First Presidency approached their seats. Every one of the thousands of people there rose to their feet all at once as the Spirit of God filled that expansive hall and bore witness of the divinity of his prophetic mantle and calling. I knew for myself that he was a man of God, called by revelation and prophecy to guide us and encourage us to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Thomas S. Monson is God's current and chosen prophet on the earth today. Because God loves us, He has again provided us with a living prophet, one of His valiant servants, to guide us and speak the will and mind of Heaven in and for our day and time. I love it!
