Hi I'm Thomas Hawes

Imma Mormon!!!!!!

About Me

I have just finished serving a mission in the West Virginia Charleston mission in the united states and I loved every second of it. I plan on studying Chemistry at USU now after a short break to work. I love to play sports and games, football is the best. I am a Dallas Cowboys fan. The church has grown to be apart of me and something that I wouldn't give up for anything. I love being in this church and I know that the truth and all of those 'missing pieces' or 'questions left unanswered' can be found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

The church brought me through some tough times in my life and has brought a lot of happiness and comfort as well. I didn't used to care much for church of any kind, I was always just there. I now have a testimony that this is the true church that was set up when Jesus Christ was here on the earth. I was able to gain a testimony of this because of the love of my family and my friends. I am not sure where I would be if I didn't have the church in my life. I know that it is true and that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I also know that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real and readily available for all who will partake of it. The Atonement will enable us to change our nature and become better. You are never to far gone to embrace Him again. Our Savior loves each of us on an individual scale, that never ceases to amaze me. When you feel abandoned and torn down and no matter how many times you fall how a lone you may feel take comfort in knowing He will never abandon you. He has been with you every step of the way. I know that our Savior and Redeemer lives and loves us. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the one true church on this Earth today and it is being led and guided by His divine power and not mans. These were all things that I have had to go into sincere prayer to discover, and because I have prayed and received an answer to all of those prayers and questions is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I just served a 2 year mission helping others draw closer to our savior. Now i am going home and will continue to invite friends to come and see what the church is like and how they can become more like our savior.
