Hi I'm Taylor

Family of 4. Owner of a surety bond agency. Nicknamed Sumo. I'm Mormon.

About Me

My nickname is Sumo... I have two beautiful girls and a rockin' wife. I own and work at a surety bond agency in Arizona. I was raised as a Mormon. I served a mission in central Illinois.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? Everyone wants to find out what will make them happy. I believe God wants us to find it. As I have lived by Mormon standards and teachings and tested the invitations to ask God if these teachings are right, I have found that they are right. I have faith that this is Christ's Church. Having that faith and being a part of His church brightens my life and gives me strength to overcome life's challenges . Simply put... Being Mormon makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I love the associations and friendships this Church provides. I am the recipient of incredible amounts of service and in-turn, I have been given service opportunities that have enriched my life and strengthened my faith in Christ. That faith has helped my to appreciate the sacrifice of my Savior. Living my faith enables me to use Christ's atonement to overcome life's obstacles.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

A Ward, a Stake or a Branch is simply a congregation of Mormons assigned by a geographical area. When you move to a new place you simply find what Ward you geographically live in and that is where you attend church. A Branch is a smaller ward and a Stake is a grouping of Wards or Branches.
