Hi I'm Tom Ullrich

I'm a father, a grandfather, an insurance agent & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born of goodly parents & raised on a farm in North Dakota. I am a graduate of North Dakota State University (Go Bison!!), am happily married to great gal (Debbie) I met in Flagstaff Arizona, have 5 crazy kids I wouldn't trade the world for & 6 beautiful grandchildren & of course 1 dedicated son in law & 2 very beautiful & very patient daughter in laws. I love being with my family, working with my sons in our family insurance agency, listening to golden oldies, talk radio, ice cream, food in general, working out, positive books & stories & listening to other people's success storys.

Why I am a Mormon

Has anybody asked you what is the purpose of life, why are you here on earth? Well, thanks to a good friend of mine (Bill Lucas) who introduced me and my wife to the Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder Saints in 1983, I now know my purpose here on earth thru the wonderful Plan of Salvation....and I'm not alone!! The church puts an emphasis on the importance of families and that families can be together forever. The Church of Jesus Christ believes in the same aorganization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth. Why not today?

How I live my faith

"Live in such a way that people who know you but don't know Christ will want to know Christ because they know you." This is the motto I try to live my life by, though far from perfect. Faith is fragile & needs constant action so I try to do daily prayer. scripture study, and living my life to be worthy to have the Holy Spirit be my constant companion then listening, recognizing & have the courage & strength to act upon the promptings of the Holy Ghost in ways that are pleasing to Heavenly Father. I have a testamony of the Book of Mormon (Another Testament of Jesus Christ, written by ancient prophets & translated by Joseph Smith, Jun. a modern day prophet). Thru my faith in Christ, Christ has manifest the truth of the Bookof Mormon unto me by the power of the Holy Ghost. In the Book of Mormon it teaches in Moroni 9:5, page 529, "And by the Power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things". Thus I did not take my friends word on it, I actually prayed & got confirmion from the Holy Ghost.
