Hi I'm Trevor

I'm an aspiring renaissance man, an outdoors enthusiast, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

 I don’t think that I’ve met anybody more curious than I am. Almost anything can absorb my attention. I’m the oldest of 7 kids and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My dad was relentless at making us have fun. He persevered in dragging van loads of kids on camping and boating and skiing trips while we complained the whole way. I was lazily inclined to stay at home with my face buried in various illustrated encyclopedia. Thanks to him and my Mom’s support I’ve become adventurous and even cosmopolitan in my outlook and aspirations. I collect National Geographic and read voraciously about everything that catches my eye. I just wish I could see and express things more like 'Right-Brained' people do.  Serving as a full time missionary has turned me outward in many ways. I have aspirations to study psychology and begin a private marriage and family counseling practice.

Why I am a Mormon

If I weren't completely convinced of the truthfulness of this religion I would probably be an Agnostic. I moved out of my home when I was just 16, abandoning the 'restraining' influence of my parents and the church. Before long I awoke to the darkness of my environment and by prayerful reading the Book of Mormon I received a witness of my own. This religion recognizes the family as God's vehicle of salvation and that means allot to me. For being such an inquisitive person having all of my pressing questions satisfied here is a pretty remarkable thing.

How I live my faith

 For the last two years I've served as a full time missionary in Portland Oregon. Sharing what I believe to be true is a high priority. My spirituality illuminates every aspect of my life, putting it all into perspective. Throught the day I feel close to God as I pray. Reading from the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon, nourishes my soul, pulling any situation info focus if I approach it receptively.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

We believe that we are saved by the grace of Jesus Christ. We do however believe that there are conditions to receive that Grace. God expects us to do 'all that we can do'. But it's still only by his grace that we can live move and breathe in the first place. As we seek to keep all of His commandments and he changes our hearts. Could a perfectly just God expect any less? Would a perfectly merciful God expect any more? 1 John 23-4 'And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.'  Show more Show less
