Hi I'm Thomas

I grew up in Southern California, I love volleyball and I'm a Mormon

About Me

When I was three years old, my parents divorced. My mother decided to become a member of the LDS church when I was five years old. My father did not want my older sister or I to be baptized so I had to wait until I was eighteen years old. I was able to attend church meeting every other week and had to see my friends be baptized, receive the priesthood, and fully active in church activities but since I was not a member, I had to be on the sidelines and watch.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member because I have felt the Spirit when I am in church or reading my scriptures. I know without a doubt in my mind that this is the true church of God. I have a powerful testimony of the Book of Mormon, I have read it several times and each time I reread it, the presence of the Spirit is so strong and testifies the truth of it to me.

How I live my faith

I am a Sunday School teacher for 14 year olds. I participate in Young Men's activities and I live my beliefs in my day to day life.
