Hi I'm Taylor

I am a missionary! I love the Ukulele. I am a religion enthusiast. I love the Ocean.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play the guitar and ukulele and feel the sound rushing through my soul. It is so much fun to create new things and accomplish the impossible. I was going to college but have put it on hold along with every thing else to serve the Lord as a full time missionary in the beautiful state of Indiana.

Why I am a Mormon

A big portion of my extended family are not members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but are wonderful Christians. One time while visiting them my parents wouldn't let me go with them to church and it sparked a wonderful question that changed my life. Later that evening as I spoke with my cousins they asked me "Why would your parents be worried about you going to our church if they knew that their church was the “Only true church”?" I started to ask myself if a church was absolutely sure that they were the only one that "God" had organized why would you be afraid? I started asking questions it no longer mattered to me how the church or religion was started because the story whether it be a young boy seeing a vision of God and Jesus Christ, a grown man talking to the angel Gabriel, or following the words of another it would require faith to follow. So I started my search looking into all religions: Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Judaism, Seek, Jainism, and the many different Christian faiths just to name a few. As I studied the teachings of these different religions I noticed one thing; All of these wonderful religions contained truth. There were many parallels from one religion to another more than I would have ever imagined. As I searched I also began to notice how amongst the similarities there were small gaps here and there. A bit of truth missing replaced with simple differences of opinion. What one was missing another had and vise-versa. As I continued my search I was invited by a neighbor to read the Book of Mormon. I figured well I have read everything else I might as well. As I read I began with prayer and closed with prayer asking God to help me know if what I was reading was true. I don't know exactly where I was in the reading but I felt a change in my heart as I was filled with peace and I knew that it was true. I am so grateful to a loving heavenly father that answered my sincere prayer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by focusing on the basics: daily prayer and scripture study, attending church on Sundays, and striving to live a Christ like life. Really simplicity is the way to go!
