Hi I'm Trevor Collette...

and life is TOO good!!!

About Me

I was born in Texas and grew up in Idaho. I love basketball, tennis, golf, snowboarding, wakeboarding, surfing, and anything else that gets me moving! I have played piano for over 15 years and love music. I have lived in Ecuador three different times to take care of the most incredible children in the world - it was with a group called OSSO (Orphanage Support Services Organization). I am currently a full-time college student at Brigham Young University.

Why I am a Mormon

I read the Book of Mormon and asked my Father in heaven if it was true and he answered my simple prayer by the Holy Spirit. I know without a single doubt that the Book of Mormon is true and will never deny the answer my Father gave me. The authority of God is restored on the earth and I have witnessed its power throughout my life. I'm a Mormon because I know that God continues to call living Apostles and Prophets. I'm Mormon because I understand the blessings that come from making sacred covenants with my Heavenly Father. I am Mormon because the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ has made my family stronger and happier than any other thing in my life. True and lasting happiness is found in living the restored Gospel that is found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to become more like my Savior, Jesus Christ, every single day. I want to be an example of Him in all that I do. I don't always do as good as I would like to but I know that through Jesus Christ my weaknesses can become strengths! I live my faith by studying the scriptures and having daily prayer.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Trevor Collette...
Yes! The Bible is important because it gives us the teachings and stories of Christ's earthly ministry. The Bible has direct quotes from Jesus Christ himself. We regard it as Holy Scripture and love everything it teaches us! Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Trevor Collette...
One of the best ways to increase our faith in Jesus Christ is by using His Atonement daily in our lives. What is the Atonement? The Atonement includes three things, 1. Jesus Christ's suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane, 2. His death on the cross, and 3. His resurrection three days later. Through these incomprehensible acts of love we can repent and change our lives for the better. To overcome our weaknesses and sins we must rely on the only person to have ever lived a perfect life, our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. As we repent and feel forgiven for our mistakes our faith in Jesus Christ grows. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. There is no other name under heaven by which we can be saved and live with our Heavenly Father again. He is the only way. Show more Show less
