Hi I'm Tommy Simon

I grew up in Peoria, Arizona, I'm serving a mission in Seoul, Korea, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be outside and to be active. I really enjoy going to the lake, trying to fish, and 4 wheeling in the desert. My main hobby is cars, I love seeing and working on classic cars with my dad. I grew up playing basketball and football and played men's volleyball in high school. I loved to be active at high school going to several events and just having fun with it all making great memories.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon. The spirit of the Lord has testified to me of the truthfulness of this gospel. There has never been a doubt in my mind that this was not the Lord's fully restored church on the earth today. The Book of Mormon is true and was given through divine revelation and has the power to change lives as it testifies of Christ. Joseph Smith was a true prophet whom the Lord used as an instrument in His hands to help restore the gospel according to His will. Thomas S Monson is a true prophet on the earth today, given all keys necessary to lead and guide the Lord's people on the earth. Priesthood power is the power of God, to act with authority and in accordance to His will to bless the lives of others. I know that Christ lives and that He died for me out of the purest love possible. Just like President Hinckley roughly said once, either the church is all true or it's a fraud. It requires faith, but that faith leads to eternal life to live with the Lord God again.

How I live my faith

I had the privilege of being the secretary of the priests quorum in my ward for a year and a half. This was a challenge at times as we had 18 active young men and I was in charge of making assignments and organizing the young men at events, as well as helping coordinate and plan events. But these are some of the best young men I have ever known and now 10 of us are leaving for missions all around the world this summer. I am one of those 10. I have been called to serve in the Korea, Seoul Mission. I know that Christ lives and that He is my Savior. He performed the Atonement for all and provided salvation for mankind. I love the Lord my God with all my heart, might, mind, and strength and want to serve Him with everything I have. My life is the Lord's and now I am willing to commit to years to His service and whatever He has in store for me.
