Hi I'm Thomas

I grew up in the North West of the U.S. I currently attend Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family lived much of their life in California, but I was born in the North West and I've lived there my whole life. I currently live in Utah, and I'm a freshman at Brigham Young University. I'm the youngest of four, and have grown up in the LDS church. I have a great passion for film and writing, yet somehow i'm majoring in finance... I enjoy camping, hiking, and adventuring of all sorts. I particularly like to travel the world, and play soccer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not because it's been forced upon me, but because I have come to know for myself that the gospel of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I love my heavenly Father and my Savior as deeply as my imperfect, mortal heart allows. I have felt His love and have felt the truth in the words of the Book of Mormon, Bible, and I know that the prophets called sincerely love us, and will guide us towards living like Christ. I owe God so much, I have received innumerable blessings, and I want to deserve them. I know I am here on Earth for a reason, and I know that I want to live my life in a way that enables me to fulfill God's purpose for me.

How I live my faith

I am a "dad" for a group of kids my age at college. There is also a "mom," and we plan activities each week for the whole group to participate in. This calling helps me to fellowship my classmates, and be a friend to those in need. I live my faith through continually striving towards personal growth, and using my talents to be God's tool and benefit His children.
