Hi I'm Toby

I grew up in Los Angeles. I'm an aspiring opera singer. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Pasadena just outside of LA. I like to sing, and play basketball. I'm a student at UCLA studying opera and I hope to one day become a professional opera singer. I'm so grateful to Heavenly Father for my talents, and I love to use them to bring joy to those around me. I'm excited to be able to spend the next two years of my life serving in Natal, Brazil, and helping others to feel the same happiness that comes from the gospel that I've felt in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I have seen in my own life and the life of others the ways that Heavenly Father blesses his children. I'm a mormon because I have felt Heavenly Father's presence in my life, and because I have received confirmation that the teachings and tenets of the gospel are true. One of the things that I love about the church is how hopeful it is. I know that God loves all of his children, and because of the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for us, He will always forgive us no matter how far we stray from Him. Through prayer and scripture study I have been able to develop my own testimony that the church is true, and that Heavenly Father blesses all who have a desire to learn of Him.

How I live my faith

I will be living my faith every day as a missionary for the church for the next two years. Every day I will wake up, and teach the people of Natal about the gospel of Jesus Christ and his restored church. I will devote all my time and energy to spreading the joy I've felt being a member of this church.
