Hi I'm Thomas

I grew up in Southern California, USA. I am 19 years old and I'm a missionary serving in the country of Panama. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Some of my hobbies include singing, listening to music, playing lots of different sports, and spending time with my friends and family. I have graduated high school and now attend college. My goal is to become an Athletic Trainer for a professional sports team. I have been a member of the church my entire life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church. My parents and the rest of my family are all members of the church. So being raised living the gospel standards has been a blessing for me my whole life. I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true. I know that the teachings given to me are real. I have had the opportunity to attend other churches and hear many other preachers. Though what they are believing in is partly true, I know that this church contains the full truth and I would never give that up for anything in the world.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in my every day actions. I maintain my standards and morals wherever I go. I try to give service as much as possible, whether it be for a church activity or just helping out someone in need. I enjoy teaching and sharing with others my beliefs. I try to stand as an example for the church.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Thomas
We can increase our faith in Christ by having the desire to. Christ is always there for us. If we are obedient to God's commandments, and have the desire to know that Christ is there, then our faith will grow and we will be strengthened through the blessings of Christ and our Heavenly Father. Another way is through our actions. We're not going to strengthen our faith just by sitting around doing nothing. We need to do things like praying, reading the scriptures, going to church, and things of that nature that will help us build our faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
