Hi I'm Travis

I'm a newlywed college student and soon-to-be father, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Que linda la vida! First and foremost I am a husband to a loving wife and soon-to-be father to a baby girl! I am currently a university student studying psychology. I grew up loving to play basketball, golf and track; my wife and I still are as active as time permits between school and work. I sure do love her!

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born into a family where the LDS (Mormon) Church was the church we went to, I consider myself a convert. For several years I did my own search, attending other churches and praying to Heavenly Father to know the truth. After some personal, special, and very sacred experiences I found where I belonged... where I had already been. Looking back to those years now almost a decade later, I have been blessed to see that hand of the Savior Jesus Christ in my life, and have felt of His cleansing and redeeming powers, for which I will be eternally grateful.

How I live my faith

My wife and I just moved to a new neighborhood and we were asked to teach together a large group of high school aged kids the Old Testament. At first we were worried that we wouldn't do well, but we have been able to teach now for several months and we love it, and more importantly have become great friends with the youth. As we pray and prepare our lessons together, we both learn new things each week.

Are Mormons Christians?

If the word christian means someone who believes in Jesus Christ, then I (along with all other Mormons) am most certainly christian. The official name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I know that He is central not only to our church, but that we should always strive for Him to be at the center of our lives. I have felt in my life the power of His sacrifice for us, how it can clean us completely from our sins. I love and embrace His teachings from Him and His prophets and apostles. I cannot express adequately my love and gratitude for our Lord, Savior, Redeemer and Exemplar Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
