Hi I'm Taylor

I love my family and I am serving in the beautiful land of Minnesota and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am from Utah. I am 19 years old and I am serving a mission in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission. I love being a missionary because it gives me an opportunity to really forget about yourself and help other people. I am the oldest of 4 kids and I have the most amazing mom in the world who has helped me through the ups and downs that I have had in my life. I love to play basketball and baseball. I love the mountains and being with my friends. I also truly love this church and the blessings it has brought to me in my life and the life's of my family. The gospel of Jesus Christ has changed my life for the better and I will always be grateful for that.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a member of this church because of the joy it brings to me. Also because I have seen how it can change lives and turn people who feel like they are lost and gone forever into great and mighty sons and daughters of Christ. My life hasn't always been the picture perfect movie, I have had many struggles and felt like I lost my faith. If it wasn't for my family and the examples that they have been to me, I don't where I would be. The best example I have in my life is my mom. When I was young my parents were divorced and I have been with my mom my whole life. She is the reason that I am who I am today. I have tried to do my best to become the best man I could to be able to help her. I sometimes felt overwhelmed and my faith dwindled. It wasn't until I thought about a mission that I really decided that I needed to do something and find a testimony of this church for myself. That is what I did and I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who is there, and answers our prayers. My prayers were answered and I found a new meaning of faith in Jesus Christ. I didn't know If I wanted to serve a mission before that day but after that experience I knew without a doubt. This church can help anyone no matter who they are or where they come from.

How I live my faith

 I try my best to live my faith by following what Christ has told us to do. One way that I have found for myself to really show faith is by studying the scriptures. They are a powerful tool to know the will and desires that Christ has for us. He has provided us a way to know how to come closer to him and live as he did. The scriptures contain a spirit that is hard to find other places. There has been another door opened for us to make more sense of God's plan for all of His children. The Book of Mormon is that way and It is truly from God and can bless each and every one of us. No matter what our challenges are. We can also show faith by praying to Him and asking if the Book of Mormon is true. He will answer and wants to answer.
