Hi I'm Thomas

I am a Mormon originally from Maine, and I am currently serving the Lord in Fresno California!

About Me

I am a devout Christian of the Church of Jesus Christ. I try each and every day to serve the Lord. I currently am blessed to serve him everyday as a missionary. I was born in Ogden, Utah, but I spent most of my life in Maine. I love to ski, run, paint draw, solve math problems, play board games, and I love to learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Mormon church, but I am not a Mormon simply because my parents are and taught me in the church. I am a Mormon because I have learned that there is a great joy in following the commandments of our Lord. I have felt the power of the gospel and can testify that there is great comfort in the gospel. I have learned that when I try to follow the ways of the world and listen to the ideas of those around me who are not part of the church, nor believe in the values of the church, I have been greatly confused, dismayed, and depressed. However, when I have followed after the ways of the gospel and have committed to reading my scriptures and praying I have found clarity and great joy, which has helped me gain a testimony that the gospel is true. I know of a surety that the Lord has blessed me in my life, and I know that following his teachings will bring even more blessings to me. I am grateful for all I have been blessed with and have a great desire to bring others to the gospel that has blessed me so.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints serving in Fresno California and the surrounding areas for two years. I love being able to reach out and help others each and everyday learn about who God is, who Jesus Christ is, and how as we follow Jesus Christ to return to our God and Heavenly Father. I know that what we teach will bless lives because I have seen it do so many times since I have been out here.
