Hi I'm Thomas Brunette

I grew up in California. I like baseball. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Southern California area, near San Diego. I am a huge sports fan and I love to play. I play baseball and I did competitive swimming during high school. After high school, I got a job working for an energy efficiency company as one of their technicians to pay for me going on a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, so I don't really know what it's like to not be a member of the church. I don't know how other churches and lifestyles compare to this one. I do know however, that Heavenly Father loves each and every one of us. I know that He sent His son Jesus Christ down to pay the price for all of our sins. I know that Jesus Christ lives, and He loves us, and if we are worthy, we can return to dwell in Heavenly Father's presence and live with Him and His son again. I know that there is a power that comes from reading the Book of Mormon, one that isn't matched with any other Book, and I know that if we read it and listen to its teachings, we will be blessed.

How I live my faith

I try to actively participate in church meetings and activities. I try to assist others when I see a need, and I try to just be a kind person, and live the standards that I have been taught. I am an Eagle Scout, so I try to live the points of the Scout Law, that is, being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. I try to give back to those that have helped me in life by helping others get to where I've gotten and to better heights.
