Hi I'm Trevor

I am a husband, father, teacher, student, and a nice, happy guy. I love my family, my life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a high school mathematics teacher for the last four years. I taught mostly Hispanic students and absolutely loved it. I am now working on a PhD in education in order to improve the educational experience of all students, but especially those from other cultures. I have a young and wonderful family that I love to spend time with. We especially enjoy being outdoors and just running around. My kids can be happy anywhere they have some room to run.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon simply because I believe this is what God wants me to be. I love the church and the incredible blessings that are promised to me. My family is most important in my life and because of the blessings of the temple I have the promise that they will be my family for eternity. This promise helps me avoid getting too wrapped up in myself and my work and helps me focus on those things that are most important: God, my wife, and my children. I am a Mormon because the church keeps my life squarely centered on Jesus Christ, His atoning sacrifice, and His teachings to love one another.

How I live my faith

We recently moved into a new ward and my wife and are serving together as Sunday School teachers. We get to teach together every other week and so far have really enjoyed the time to prepare together and discuss the scriptures as a couple. We've loved the chance to teach from the Book of Isaiah the last couple of weeks. We like to make the scriptures and prayer a regular part of our lives and for our children as well.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

The world and society today promises so much and delivers so little. People who try to do things in the world's way often find themselves feeling empty and without a center. The gospel of Jesus Christ is so complete and whole that when it is accepted and lived it brings an incredible fulfillment and foundation to life. In contrast to the world. The gospel of Jesus Christ promises much and delivers even more. Show more Show less
