Hi I'm Talon

I grew up in Nevada. I'm a Missionary for the church. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well I am currently serving a mission for the church. I haven’t done too much with my life yet other than serving a mission which Is probably the greatest thing I have ever done. As I said I grew up in Nevada most of my life. In high school I played soccer and also did pole vaulting for a year in which I really enjoyed but due to work I was not able to continue doing that the rest of my high school career. I worked as a lifeguard at a hotel for a few years before my mission I loved being a lifeguard because I got to meet tons of people. I enjoy playing sports working on vehicles and hanging out with my friends. I have no clue what I am going to do when I grow up yet, but, I will go wherever the Lord sends me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church but didn't always have a testimony that it was true. I realized that it was true when I had choices placed before me that went against my moral standards. I had to figure out if the things that I was taught growing up were true or not and decide if I want to live this way. I remember one day I was sitting in church and I began to think about why I came to church and if I believed that it was true I remembered the promise that everyone always told me, that I could pray to know, so I said a silent prayer and at the end of my prayer a member got up to talk and he said something. When he did I felt the spirit tell me it was true and my testimony continues to grow everyday as I live what I believe and I continue to pray about The Book of Mormon and the church.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a full time mission for the church. I go around and tell everyone what we believe and invite them to find out for themselves if the things we share are true. When they do, they come closer to our Savior and find true happiness.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

They will talk to you about Jesus Christ and his doctrine. Everything we teach is centered on Jesus Christ. They well Share with you about how our Father in Heaven has restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith the fullness of His Gospel and what we need to do to return to live with Him again. Then they will help you live this gospel. Show more Show less
