Hi I'm Thomas

Im a skier, i love the mountains and I'm a mormon

About Me

I grew up in Utah and love being outdoors. one of my very favorite places on earth is Lake Powell. I love going on adventures with my family, we love to travel the world and explore new places. I love to camp, ski, go boating, hike, and do basically anything in the mountains or outdoors. I recently graduated high school and i am currently serving as a missionary in the Oregon, Portland mission. When i return home from my mission, i plan on going to college to study business.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know that this is Jesus Christ's church. I know that through this gospel I can experience eternal happiness. If nothing else, that alone is worth being a Mormon. But I have also found so much joy and peace through the gospel. The gospel ties my family together closer then anything else. i cant imagine my life without my family, i cant imagine my family without the gospel, and i cant imagine living forever without the joy of both my family and the gospel. I know that when Jesus Christ was on this earth he set up his church and died for me personally. I know that this is the exact same church he set up and thats why i am a part of it.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary. I am in the Oregon, Portland mission. Before my mission i enjoyed serving with other members of my ward. I loved doing activities with other boys my own age. We would do service, we would go on camp outs, and we would just hang out. One thing that i especially enjoyed was taking the sacrament to the elderly who were home-bound and could not make it to church. It was such a special experience to see how that simple act could bring them so much happiness and joy.
