Hi I'm Timothy

I grew up in California and moved to Texas. I am serving a mission in Yakima Washington from November 2017-2019. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student, but I have deferred my enrollment to serve a mission in Yakima, Washington. I like to read, draw, and play tennis. I also have a mild interest in physics. I'm an Eagle Scout, and I once hiked 50 miles through Yosemite in six days.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I have come to know that the church is true because there is a big difference in my life when I can feel the Holy Ghost and when I cannot. When I live the gospel I can always feel a comforting presence, like a hand on my shoulder, so that I know that this is God's church.

How I live my faith

I'm just a regular member of the church, currently. Soon, however, I will be serving a mission in Yakima, Washington, from November 2017-2019

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Begin with yourself and your home. You cannot ultimately control how others act, but you can be an example to your family and those around you. Teach your children-if you have them-to be careful about what they see and search for on the Web. Teach and remember that God loves sexual purity, and that the body is a temple, not an exhibit. Remember that what you see is not easily forgotten, so you can choose what stays with you throughout your life. Remember that if it is a problem, repent now rather than later, because God always desires that we turn to Him. Show more Show less
