Hi I'm Taylor

I 'm a song writer. I love Adventure. I love the sweet times with family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I am serving a 2 year mission in Melbourne, Australia. I love to have fun. I guess a huge part of who I am and what I do is music. I love to write music, sing, play guitar, and play viola. Family, friends and music bring me the most joy in life along with sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with others. Having the restored gospel in my life really ties all that I love together nicely.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but as many know that doesn't mean much because no matter what, everyone can choose for themselves. How I came to know this church was true was a step by step process. It didn't come over night, but over time. Acting on what I was taught brought me the truth. To read is one thing, but to act on what you read and learn is what brings the evidence or truthfulness of something. Even thought I always knew the church was true I still wanted to hear it from God and I heard it through prayer. I put everything I already knew aside and asked with sincerity of heart really wanting to know if this was his church and he let me know through the Holy Ghost that bore witness to my feelings. I know no less before, then or now that this is God's church and the teachings therein bring me lasting happiness when I follow them.

How I live my faith

A big part of our faith is reaching out to others by applying what we learn to ourselves and to our various communities. Since I am serving a mission in Australia there are more opportunites to serve than ever before. I try to help as best I can, whether to their physical or spiritual needs. Patterned after Jesus Christ I too try to seek out those in need.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

The Mormon lifestyle basically includes living a temperate life. We believe in treating our bodies like temples. Like a temple is sacred, our bodies are sacred so we treat them as such. We don't do anything to harm, defile, or neglect our body. It's a life in the service of your fellow man, which makes one also in the service of God. No one is perfect, but we are encouraged to strive to always be perfect at trying and being our best. The general public basically views the "Mormon lifestyle" as one that is constricting and limited, but as any practicer of the faith knows...it is a life that brings freedom, lasting happiness, and true satisfaction.
