Hi I'm Taylor

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 23 years old. I served a mission in Minneapolis Minnesota spanish speaking from 2008-2010. I got married on July 30th 2011 in the Salt Lake Temple. My two favorite hobbies are skateboarding and photography. I also love playing video games and video/photo editing.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life but didn't really understand tell I was 18. For the most part everyone in my family is really strong in the church. Going to church on Sunday was always a must. In my earlier years I hated going to church. I thought it was boring; it was 3 hours long..... Needless to say I had a bad attitude. But I went so I didn't have to fight with my parents. When I was 18 I realized that I could go on my mission in a year and I knew that I needed to prepare. One Sunday I decided to go to church because I wanted to go, not because my parents were making me. My experience that day impacted me forever. For the first time I felt good, I realized, this is why we come to church. The times before I had made up my mind that church was dumb and I wouldn't learn anything. So, of course I couldn't feel the spirit. I am a Mormon because everything I have in my life is because I decided to serve a mission. The wife that I have, the job that I have all has been given to me by God because of my service. My life would have no purpose. I am a Mormon because I know where I came from, why I am here and where I will go after this life.

How I live my faith

Me and my wife go to a Spanish branch and I love being able to speak the language and serve the people I grew to love on my mission. I am a ward missionary and I go out with the missionaries often. I can say that I am truly happy when I go to church and serve others. Even if I am having financial problems or any other kind of problem I am still happy because I know God will bless me for keeping His commandments.
