Hi I'm Thomas Charles Fredrick

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am the oldest of eight kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have just graduated high school and will leaving on a mission this summer. I am the oldest of eight kids and love to spend time with my family . This past year I served as Student Body President of my high school which was so fulfilling and fun to plan activities and help other students. In high school I played on the football and baseball teams. I enjoy vacationing, exercising, and being outside.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have studied, learned, and gained a testimony for myself that this church is true. I have personally felt the love of Heavenly Father. I know that he is watching over me everyday and wants me to be successful and happy. I was born into a family where the church is very strong so I have attended church every week for my whole life. I have always believed the church was true, but my love for the church has grown and is still growing. I have decided to serve a mission for the church and am excited to share this gospel. I have a testimony that our Heavenly Father loves everyone and through his Atonement has made it possible for all of his to be forgiven of our sins. I know that the Heavenly Father used Joesph Smith to restore the fulness of the gospel back on this earth. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the true prophet on the earth today. I also have a testimony that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God and can bring you closer to Heavenly Father along with sincere prayer.

How I live my faith

I love my faith and work to attend all my meetings and fulfill all my callings. I am currently serving as a home teacher in my ward. My companion and I are teaching families that are both members and non-members. I have loved getting to know these people and I have really enjoyed home teaching recently because I feel that it has shown me what a mission will be like and has also prepared me for a mission.
