Hi I'm Travis

I've grown up on a farm,I love wrestling, going to school to become a teacher, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from a small farm town in Idaho, I have three siblings one older brother, a twin sister, and a younger sister. I have served a full time mission in Georgia and Florida. I am currently a college student and I want to study secondary education to become a high school math teacher. I love the sport of wrestling! It one of the greatest things that I have done in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life and my life is just as hard as everyone else, I have my own trials, dissappointments, but i I also have my good and happy moments in my life. Why I'm a Mormon is because of all the things that happened in my life that have shaped me to the person that I am today, yes there have been times that I thought this isn't fun I don't want to do this, or even the more common questions why me? and why now? But the greatest thing in my life that has helped me to grow the most is the Book of Mormon because when i do have those whyme and why now moments I can turn to the Book of Mormon to find the answers that I need and also through prayer with those two things have helped me to really help me through trials and helped me to know that as small in unimoprtant I am to the World, to our Heavenly Father I mean the whole world to him.

How I live my faith

Way I live my faith is by my the things I do in my day to day life. In the book of (James 1: 22) it says "But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only" I feel that it is so important, because Jesus taught "If ye love me, keep my commandments" (John 14:15). Keeping Gods commandments is so important, I know that I have been blessed so much by keeping his commandments with peace, security, and happiness because of that commandment from the Savior. Another way that I live my faith is through service. I find joy in trying to help other people, it helps me to not only forget my problems and trials that I have but it reminds me of all the blessings the Lord has blessed me with.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Travis
No serving a mission is completely voluntary, no one is forced to serve, they go out on a mission because we have this wonderful message about the Savior restoring his church and we want to share it with EVERYONE! Show more Show less
