Hi I'm Trevor

I play soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Utah State University. I am majoring in International Business. I spent two years in the French Caribbean. I love to play soccer. It's my favorite thing to do. I come from a big family. I am the fourth of six children. I love doing anything outdoors. I can't stand being inside.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed a lot about the doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and my Heavenly Father has told me over and over again by His Holy Spirit that it is true. I feel happy and cheerful when I follow the teachings of the gospel. I have never felt as much happiness by doing anything else. I have never seen a vision, or received some kind of magnificent sign, but Heavenly Father spoke to me. As I progress spiritually I recognize the whisperings of His Spirit more and more often and I feel Him guiding me through my life, always giving me reassurances that this is true.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I help organize activities for small groups of students every Monday for Home Evening. Every Monday families around the world hold a Family Home Evening, an evening for people to spend time with their families. As college students away from our families, we get put into groups of around 20 students and have uplifting activities together. I also go with a partner and teach other people the gospel at least once a month.

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

There are no restrictions as to who can join the church, so long as that person receives a personal witness through the Holy Ghost that the church and its teachings are true. As for the Priesthood, every worthy man that is a member of the church may receive the priesthood. There is no discrimination of any kind. Show more Show less
