Hi I'm Tom

I grew up in Utah with a loving family in the gospel. I love the church. I love helping and serving people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the gospel and the feelings it brings to me and the people I love. I love to be outdoors to enjoy what God has created for us. I love meeting new people and learning about where they came from and how their life can benefit mine. I love learning new things and broadening my horizons so I can share with others what I have learned. I enjoy technology and how it connects people together. If I could choose to be anywhere in the world for the next two years it would be in Central America with the people of El Salvador and Belize because I know that's where the Lord needs and wants me to be.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the gospel. Even though I was raised in the Church and had to rely on my parents testimony when I was growing up, I've grown to gain my own testimony through the experiences that I've had in Church or when I was reading the Scriptures or going to Seminary. There really is no where else you can go to feel the same feelings you do as when you know you are where the Lord wants you to be. Living your life in such a way that the gospel can enter in and change it is the best way to get to know Him. I have never felt closer to Christ when I am doing the things I know he would want me to do.

How I live my faith

When I was a young teenager I was very active in the leadership of my quorums. I was Deacon's quorum president, Teacher's quorum president, and even Priest's quorum first assistant. These positions helped me see the needs of others and how my role in the Church was important to them. It also helped me learn the importance of the Priesthood and how it can affect my life and the life of those around me. If I could choose any calling in the Church it would have to be a temple worker because the temple is such a nice place to be. The temple is really something everyone should strive to go to because the feelings and the things you learn there are things that you can't feel anywhere else in the world. I hope that on my mission I will be able to help people prepare and enter the temple to feel those same feelings that I feel when I go to the temple.
