Hi I'm Taylor

I was born in Oregon, grew up in California served a mission in South Africa and now live in Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the father of 5 children that are my full time hobby. I entertain them with magic tricks that I have been performing professionally since I was 12 years old. I now work in the Healthcare IT field.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of this church, but I remember thinking as a kid "Even if this isn't true, it is a good way to live." I received my first witness from the Holy Ghost as a teenager when I finished the Book of Mormon for the first time. My testimony of the gospel has grown as I have raised my own children in the church.

How I live my faith

I try to teach the 14 and 15 year old boys in our congregation that there is more to being a man than they see portrayed in the media. A real man is selfless, patient, strong and humble. In short, a real man is one who endeavors to be Christlike.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

All worthy men are expected to serve missions. All are encouraged to serve. It has been over 15 years since I returned from my mission to South Africa and I can honestly say that not a day goes by that I do not think about the people or the work that I did there. I paid for my mission out of money that I had saved and look forward to serving again with my wife when I am a bit older. Show more Show less
