Hi I'm Tom.

I'm a husband, father, web designer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a designer. I grew up in Northern Virginia. I love the gospel. My favorite time of year is Christmas because everyone is a little bit kinder.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because it makes me happy and brings me peace. That may sound rather simplistic but I believe that everyone in life is searching for these two precious gems. This gospel has taught me that I lived with Heavenly Father before I came to earth and that I can return to live with him again because of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know this is true because I have felt the power of the Holy Ghost. Anyone can know these things are true through the Holy Ghost themselves—what a wonderful gift from Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

 I most recently served as the Bishop ecclesiastical leader of our ward. It was a wonderful opportunity to work with those who want to change their lives for good. I also had the chance to assist the needy. It was very humbling to see the faith of those struggling under financial burdens. It strengthened my faith to see that those who gave willingly of their means, often had their necessities provided miraculously in their hour of need. I've also enjoyed working with the young men through the Boy Scout program. I have a real testimony that the values Scouting teaches are just the thing that is needed for the boys and the world they will work in when they grow up.
