Hi I'm T.C. Smith

I grew up in Syracuse, Utah. I love the guitar, service, musicals, and I am a Latter-Day Saint

About Me

My hobbies are guitar, singing, musicals. My interests are psychology and the human mind or behavior. My aim in life is to be a Super-advisory Special Agent for the Behavioral Analysis Unit for the F.B.I. or for those of you who don't know, cool guys from Criminal Minds.

Why I am a Mormon

Both my parents left the church at a young age and when my brother and I were born, our mother raised us in the only church she knew and that was the LDS church. Growing up in Utah, it was a very cultural thing to do, such as baptism, confirmation, all the priestly ordinations and such things, especially when I lived in Syracuse,a small town labeled as 'The Gateway to Antelope Island.' As I grew older my mother moved away from the church and my father never returned with any intention of rejoining since his departure as a teenager. Now, during my 'terrible teens' I, too, started to move away from the gospel. Church was boring, football was on, I had the early morning session, you know the unethical teenager. During my sophomore year in high school, I had the opportunity to go on trek. So, I accepted and went. They changed it up a bit and let the kids be the Ma and Pa's. Now, you're probably thinking that I went on trek and this life changing experience, converted to the gospel of Jesus once more, and called it good. Right? Wrong. However, it was the beginning. At this time I met a girl. Now, she was this pretty thing. Good singer, actor, beautiful, basically the whole package for me. As I watched her climb the hill with the other women during their pull up the mountain, I realized something. If I ever wanted a girl who had such faith, such strength and amazing as her something needed to change. That's what began my 'conversion' process back to the church. To this day I am so very thankful to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ for the love they have for me and for the charity they so generously give.

How I live my faith

I do it by serving others and by giving people the hope that they need. Through obedience and love are two key principles in life. Diligence is key, Sweat is required, Love is a law that must be obeyed.
