Hi I'm T.C. Smith

I'm a Registered Nurse, Audio Engineer, Father of 3, and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently in school to become a nurse anesthetist, which is why I moved to Florida. I also work as a freelance audio engineer when I can work it into my school schedule, and the balance of my time is spent with my wife and three children, and serving in the church.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a person who values truth, I search for it in academics as well as in m[y beliefs. Truth is our doctrine. I have come to know the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit, and that truth is taught in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is the place where the authority to actually follow the example of Jesus Christ is available, and more people need to know about that. There are so many choices to make in life, and we live in a time where the options are endless. God wants us to be happy, and we will be happiest if we follow the example that Jesus has shown us to the best of our ability. It doesn't mean we have to be perfect like Jesus was, but we need to put our best effort into following his example, and emulate the attributes that he has shown us. I am grateful that because of Jesus Christ I can return to live with my Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I serve as the secretary to our Bishop (leader of our local congregation), and work with the members of our congregation to coordinate events, youth activities, service opportunities, and our weekly services. I also visit regularly with a couple of families to encourage them to follow Jesus Christ, and act as a resource to coordinate efforts that may help them in any way - spiritually or temporally. Our house is a place where you are likely to see our missionaries as they come to share a meal or meet with friends. I also go with our missionaries to teach others who want to know more about Jesus Christ and his teachings.
