Hi I'm Travis

I'm a husband and father of four. I'm a life-long learner. I'm a disciple of Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I live in Texas with our four kids. I work as a Business Analyst and enjoy the challenges of working to solve real-world business problems. We keep pretty busy with my work and chasing after our four little ones, but for fun we like to go on walks, relax with friends, and see the sites around town. After serving a mission for the Church in Guatemala, Spanish has become a big part of who I am. My wife and I speak Spanish around the home and enjoy hearing our little ones speaking Spanish and English. If you happen to know me, feel free to ask me questions. I love sharing what I have come to know as true!

Why I am a Mormon

The short answer is that I feel that being a Mormon, or living the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, makes me happy and gives me peace that someday I’ll return to God’s presence with my family. Life can be hard, but I find that the Gospel gives me the strength and joy I need. I grew up in a Mormon family and never really doubted the teachings of the Church. However, there came a time that I had to know for myself. I prayed to know if the Church was true and did all I could to discover the truth. I came to realize on my own that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's true Church. That realization did not come all at once in some marvelous religious experience, but rather little by little as I felt God's confirmation of the truth. Now I am more sure of this knowledge than I am about anything else in life. I have come to love God and His son Jesus Christ and their Church. I truly feel that every good thing in my life I owe to my membership in the Church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow Jesus' perfect example as best I can. I try to find ways to give service in the Church and in the community. I attend my church meetings on Sundays. As often as I can I tell others about the peace and joy the Gospel has brought to my life. I read the Bible, Book or Mormon, and other Scriptures to learn God's will for me and my family and I try my best to put into practice the things I learn. I know I'm not perfect...nobody is. But I try to do my best and help others along the way.
