Hi I'm Trevor

Interests=too many to count, True Happiness=Restored Gospel

About Me

I am a man of many interests. I look back on my days and realize that there are not many things that I have not been involved in. Most things are connected to the outdoors though, thats where I find the greatest pleasure. I grew up in the Inland Northwest part of the US. There are tons of things to do there for someone like myself. I can find great activities to do during all the seasons. I would say that my greatest interest lies in cars and snowboarding. I was introduced to snowboarding when I was a freshman in high school. It came natural to me after a couple times down the mountain. Now I enjoy carving through the trees and being creative in the terrain park. I'm definately not professional or anything, just like to have fun. When I was in high school I also purchased my own car. It was in bad shape, but after months of work I got it going. It has been my daily driver for a while now. Many of my friends are not members of my church. I still find great ways to spend time with them. We never let religious views overshadow what we do have in common. I have also been very careful in my selction of friends, even though they are not members of my church, they need to hold themselves to a higher standard of conduct. I have seen tons of blessings in my life because of that. Right now I am serving a mission for my church in the Washington DC area, it has been the greatest experience of my life. After I am done here I will start college.

Why I am a Mormon

I was coverted to the church. I can't pinpoint a specific time that it happened though. Thats because I spent lots of time studying and praying to God for the right direction in my life. I have spent lots of time learning about many Christain religions. I have been very blessed though to be raised by parents who know the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Even though they raised me to be active in their beliefs, I have still had to find for myself that they were true. We are told numerous times in the scriptures to pray and ask God for guidance, or truth. That is what I have done and I encourge people to do the same. The Book of Mormon has belessed my life beyond comprehension. The words contained in it can only be inspiration from God, and I know he will never lead me astray. Every Christian has to gain a witness that the Bible is the Word of God at some point. The way to do so is by study and by prayer, and its the same way for the Book of Mormon. I have decided to follow this Church because God has told me its true. He has told me through many different experiences. Only the True and Living Gospel gives us the knowledge on God's Plan for us and its only this Gospel that gives us the opprotunity to live in God's presence as a family, bond together for eternity! .........My family means everything to me!

How I live my faith

I am currently a missionary for the Church. In a few months I will be returning home and then starting school. My purpose as a missionary is to "invite others to come unto Chirst by helping them recieve the Restored Gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement (sacrifice), repentance, baptism, recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end". There are four key words in that statement, the first and the second being "invite" and "helping", my job is to invite all people to recieve the blessings of the Gospel by being baptized and I will doing all that I can to help them do so. I serve God every day from 10am to 9pm for two years. Its the most amazing thing in the world. Your job or everyone I contact, is to "come' and to "recieve". Thats really simple right? Why resist the Blessings of Heaven when the Lord is ready to pour them upon you? Satan will do all that he can to distract you form seeing this but you must over power him. I know is is true, and I want you to know its true too. God is infinite, he is the "same yesterday, today, and forever" and the way has been prepared for you to recieve eternal joy.
