Hi I'm Travis Lish

I am an Idahoan, I love the great outdoors, I'm studying to receive my MPA degree, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a family of eight. I have three brothers and two sisters. My family has played a big part in my life as they have also been my best friends and also big examples for me. I love playing sports with my family and friends and being active. I also love being up in the mountains. Skiining and backpacking are some of my favorite things to do. I am currently working on my Master's of Public Administration.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ because I have come to learn of the joy that it brings into our lives. I personally have read the Book of Mormon and prayed to Heavenly Father asking him if it is true. I have been able to feel on countless ocasions that the book is true, that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and am so grateful for the feelings that God has placed in my heart. Growing up I had a big desire to do what was right and follow Jesus Christ. This desire motivated me to study in my scriptures started at a very young age. Little by little that desire grew until it became a testimony of this church and the doctrine it teaches. The Gospel of Jesus Christ means everything to me. It is the most important thing in my life and I know that following this gospel is the only way that we can return to the Father and have an eternal family. Putting it simple, the gospel has given me happiness here, and will give me eternal happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith doing little things on a daily and weekly basis. I study my scriptures, pray, and write my spiritual experiences down in a journal. I attend my church meetings on Sundays and strive to attend the temple once a week. These are things that I would consider to be small and simple. They are the things that help me align my path with God's plan. I try my best to serve my God by serving those around me. My faith makes me the person I am and I love it.

What is being a Mormon like?
