Hi I'm Troy

I grew up in Layton, Utah. I love boating, Scuba diving, and just hanging out with my family! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married with three great boys! I work for Hewlett-Packard Company as a Print Technology Consultant. I love hanging out with my family, watching movies, boating, wake-boarding, Lake Powell, SCUBA Diving, and Snow Skiing / snowboarding. I love technology, computers, and all those little electronic gadgets!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is TRUE! Our Savior, Jesus Christ stands at the head of this Church. I testify that Jesus Christ is our Savior, our Redeemer, Our Lord, and our Elder Brother. He atoned for all our sins and sacrificed himself for us. He died on the cross for us and he was resurrected three days later and because of that, all of us will be resurrected also. I know that Joseph Smith was and Is a True Prophet of God. He did see God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. By the Power of God, he translated the Book of Mormon. It is true. I have read it many times. I LOVE reading The Book of Mormon because it testifies of Christ. I have prayed about The Book of Mormon, and I have received an answer from my Heavenly Father that it is true. The gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the Earth, the Priesthood has also been restored to the earth and can be found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have a true and living Prophet today, President Thomas S. Monson. He is the Prophet today just like the Prophets of old. I know he does receive revelation from God for us. I know these things are true, because I have prayed to God, my Heavenly Father, and have asked him and I have received an answer from him through the Holy Spirit that these things are true! The Gospel makes me happy. God has a plan for us, there is purpose to life, there is life after death. I love this Church, I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I know it is true. Everyone can know for themselves that these things are true if you truly want an answer and ask God. It is a great promise that he gives to all of us!

How I live my faith

I am very active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I currently am serving as the 1st Counselor in the Bishopric in our ward. I have responsibilities over our Young Men's Organization, Sunday School, Music, & Scouting. I love working with our youth groups and spend a lot of time with our young men's organization and Scouting.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Troy
No. We do not worship Joseph Smith. We worship God the Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Joseph Smith was the Prophet of the Restoration, we respect him, but we do not worship him. Show more Show less
