Hi I'm Tim Sanford

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah, served a mission in Buenos Aires, Argentina, married the love of my life, Chelsey Sanford, attended medical school at VCU, had the awesomest little boy, and am currently in my residency at UNC Chapel Hill.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored through Joseph Smith. It is very comforting to know that we have a prophet today to lead Christ's church, especially in these times of peril. One of the greatest truths that was restored was that of the priesthood, the proper authority to act in God's name and with that authority, the ability to be sealed to my family for time and all eternity. One of my greatest spiritual confirmations that this is the true church of God was when I was sealed to my wife and son in the Washington DC temple.

How I live my faith

I am currently a primary teacher for 5 and 6 years old.
