Hi I'm Thomas

I raise goats, love the outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated from high school and I am about to leave on a mission for the church in the Philippines Baguio mission. I have a younger teenage brother and an old brother who left this earth in 2002. I live with my mother and stepfather while my father is an english teacher full time in China. I love anything outdoors with fresh air. Discovering how things work is a passion of mine. I enjoy math and building things with my hands. After my mission I plan on pursuing a carreer in Engineering. As my life is just starting I am eagerly looking forward to finding new and interesting paths the Lord will provide for me.

Why I am a Mormon

As I was born into the church I was never one to question it in my early years. However into my late teenage years my faith began to be questioned nearly daily and the some of my closest friends began to show their strong discontent with my beliefs. This called for some serious prayer and study to find out just why I believe in the things I do. As I turned to my Father in Heaven daily I began to feel the peace and comfort that was there when I asked for guidance. I could easily distinguish between this feeling and the feeling of frustration when I doubted my beliefs. This is how I came to know the things I believe are the truth.

How I live my faith

I have just recently transitioned from being a youth in the church to a leader of young children ages 8-11. I love teaching and guiding these young, innocent, souls to love Heavenly Father and have him be a constant companion in their lives. Providing service to those who I visit in my area monthly is another way I practice my faith. A constant concern and true love for these individuals has made me grow to know what true humility and charity can do to bless the lives of those around us.
