Hi I'm Trevor.

I grew up in Oregon. Currently attending a community college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I just came back from California and currently live in Oregon. I love technology and pretty much any kind of sport, especially football. 

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were LDS when I was born, but that didn't mean that I had to remain in the Church. I had the desire to know if what I was being taught was true and I investigated myself by doing what everyone must do read the Book of Mormon and pray to know it's true.

How I live my faith

I served a two-year mission for my Church, which allowed me to share the gospel to others. I live my faith by reading the scriptures, praying, going to Church and serving in whatever the Lord would have me do.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Trevor.
 No, we do not. He, like many others, was called to be a prophet. His role was to restore the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Lord's Church back on the earth.  Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Trevor.
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It contains the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ faith, repentance, baptism for remission of sins, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, enduring to the end and helps us understand in greater detail the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I know the Book of Mormon is true, and as the Bible, is the word of God. It testifies of Christ and helps us know that He is our Savior, that He indeed called Joseph Smith to be the prophet in these latter days, and that the Lord leads His Church through His prophet today, Thomas S. Monson.  Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Trevor.
No. We are to help fellow members of the Church, but that doesn't restrict us to providing service to others. We are to be representatives of the Lord Jesus Christ in all time and in all places, meaning that we help others. It's how we can help others come unto Christ as we live the way the Savior would.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Trevor.
Our faith in Jesus Christ never ends. It always progresses as we develop it ourselves. We can do so by reading the scriptures, praying, attending His Church, making and keeping covenants, keeping His commandments, sharing our testimony with others, and many other things. He has made it possible for us to increase our faith in Him. We just need to do our part and it is made possible through Him.  Show more Show less
