Hi I'm Tim

I grew up in Connecticut, I worked in excavation for 13 years and also attend BYU- Idaho. I love art, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am going to college and trying my hardest to become a social psychologist. I absolutely love rebuilding muscle cars. I grew up in my fathers garage "helping him with his hobby and it became mine. I married my beautiful wife in August of 2015, BEST decision of my life. I love to draw and watercolor paint. and I speak Romanian.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes my truly happy. I am a Mormon because life's biggest, deepest and most pondered questions are easily answered in my faith. I am a Mormon because Mormons believe that we are all "family" and that loving one another is key. I am a Mormon because I KNOW without a doubt that there is an afterlife and I will meet God and see all of my friends and family when I pass on. I am a Mormon because I believe that families should be eternal.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday all day. I have learned that to me a Mormon it is not only a faith, but a lifestyle. I teach my peers on Sundays at church during our "Sunday school" hour about the gospel.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Tim
While yes we believed we are saved by the grace of God be believe that "after all we can do" we are saved. But we must remember that God does not make up the difference in our works he is the difference. The prophet Joseph Smith taught ‘Therefore ye are justified of faith and works, through grace...’ (see JST Romans 4:16). The Book of Mormon teaches ‘For we labor diligently to write to persuade our children, and also our brethren to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace we are saved after all we can do’ (2 Nephi 25:23). The Book of Mormon adds ‘all that we could do [was to] repent of all our sins’ (Alma 24:11). A Book of Mormon prophet named Lehi taught, ‘There is no flesh that can dwell in the presence of God, save it be through the merits, and mercy, and grace of the Holy Messiah’ (2 Nephi 2:8).
