Hi I'm Tom McCoy

I grew up in Idaho and joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was 21. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a father of eight and a grandfather of 23. My wife and I have been married for 43 years. I love gardening and enjoy raising chickens and keeping bees.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife was a Mormon when we married and I said I would never join her church. I had prejudices that were instilled by my parents and my previous church. In order to resolve this issue that was in our marriage I agreed to listen to the missionaries but reiterated I wouldn't join but was doing it only to please her. As I listened to the message the missionaries shared I was overwhelmed by the truthfulness of it and surprised even myself by agreeing to baptism. That was was of the most important decisions I have ever made and I thank my Heavenly Father every day that I was able to understand the truth.

How I live my faith

My wife and I are currently serving a mission for our church in Nauvoo Illinois. This is an historic Church site and we give tours of sites and bear testimony of our faith.
