Hi I'm Tod

I grew up in Utah. Our family has lived in Utah, Texas & Iowa. I'm a son, brother, husband, father and grandfather. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the father of five daughters, three sons-in-law, and two grandchildren. I have been very happily married for 28 years. I love to spend time with my family when I'm not busy at work or serving at church. I enjoy long road trips visiting family and enjoying the outdoors. I love to golf, camp, fish, and hike.

Why I am a Mormon

I converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ when I was seven years old. I was taught about the plan of happiness, along with my family, by two sister missionaries. I learned about our Heavenly Father's love for us and His plan for us to return and live with Him. I know that Jesus Christ accepted the role as our Savior and Redeemer. He lived a perfect life and His life is an example for us. If know that if we exercise faith in Jesus Christ, obey His commandments, and remain faithful all the days of our lives, we are promised eternal life. There is no other blessing that I strive for than to be able to live with my Heavenly Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ, along with my loved ones in the hereafter.

How I live my faith

Everyday I strive to keep the covenants that I made at Baptism. I strive to follow the example of the Savior by helping others. The Church provides ample opportunities to render service to others. I currently serve as the Bishop of my ward.
