Hi I'm Taylor

I'm born and raised Idahoan country boy, I love fishing, I'm a wrestler, and I'm in love with my wife!

About Me

Currently I am one of those guys from Rexburg Idaho going to school all year. I actually have enjoyed it, and love the changes that come from marriage. I have been married just over two years now, and have been the happiest I have ever been. My wife and I love taking on new challenges and activities. We started snowboarding just a few years ago and have embraced the powder. We love camping, I love fishing, she hates fish, and it just works great.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Latter day saint family, who followed gospel standards, and helped me grow to gain my own testimony. I consider my parents very loving, and successful in raising their family. They have been the greatest examples in my life, and have been a base for me whereby I have grown and developed a solid belief of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am a member because everyday that I live this glorious plan it brings peace, and contentment to my life. My life is filled with purpose and light, while emptiness vanishes with the lonely darkness.

How I live my faith

Because i love my family so much, I do my best to make them proud. But just like I have a father here on earth I have a Father in Heaven, and I know that he loves me and wants the best for me. In the scriptures Jesus Christ Commanded us to Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect ST Matthew ch. 5 vs. 48. I know we can only receive this gift through the precious atoning sacrifice and love of our savior Jesus Christ. I love him, and am grateful for all his blessings. Because I believe in Him, my choices are affected daily and I really do find such a great happiness and peace. I can't even . Everything good that I have comes from him. This of course is not without my challenges. But I realize those very challenges are why were here. I just do what I can to make the best of them, but it's not always easy.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

As a missionary, before my mission I worked several jobs to help pay for my mission. In addition, my family also helped cover those expenses. But missionaries pay for there missions from there own pocket, and families. Other Church members are also encouraged to donate regularly to the missionary fund. It is a selfless sacrifice that brings greater joy. Show more Show less
