Hi I'm Tom

I was born in Utah. I'm a future engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Yo! So I'm a college student, working on the side, enjoying life! I'm the oldest of four siblings, and fourteen cousins. Right now, I'm studying to be a mechanical engineer. Thinking about either going into aerospace engineering, or working with prosthetics. As of now, not totally sure. Lol. In my free time, i love hanging out with my friends and hilarious family, playing video games, or the bass. I grew up in a crazy theatre family, and so I've been doing shows for as long as i can remember. I like being on stage a ton, but more than that, I love being up in the tech booth, setting up lights or music. In other words, life is good!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in an lds family, and grew up living this way, but I wouldn't say I was converted until I was about 18 years old. I remember feeling lost. Like I didn't get the point of even being on this earth. If there was a God, and he loved us (like I was being told by my friends and family in the church), why is the world such a mess sometimes? Why is the path to happiness so foggy? And was this church that I had been attending true? Or was it just made up? Finally, after long thought, I decided the one thing to do, was actually read the Book of Mormon. Now, I knew most of the stories from class, but at that point I had not as yet actually taken time to read the book from start to finish. So I did. And, as it promises right near the end, that if you pray with a sincere heart to know if it is true, and that the answer will be given to you, I decided to test that out for myself. The day I finished, and after making sure I was alone, I kneeled down and asked if this book, and therefore this church, was true. The feeling I felt, was powerful. Not at all the way I expected it to feel, but powerful nonetheless. Because of that, I know that this church is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. And although I slip up and make mistakes, and my faith is not always as strong as I'd like it to be, I cannot deny it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith, in tons of ways, but one of my favorite ways is by serving on sundays to help teach the kids in the ward. They are absolutely hilarious to me! Totally crazy. I love em. Also, one of the best experiences of my life, especially when I was younger, was going to visit some of the families in our neighborhood with my dad. We would go, see if they needed help with anything, and share an uplifting thought or scripture. So cool to see how much these people appreciated that!
