Hi I'm Taylor Thomas

Im 18 years old, I'm a huge football fan, and I love the gospel of Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent High School graduate and have been accepted to BYU Idaho. But I am currently preparing to go on a mission. I leave for the MTC in December before going on to serve in Paris, France. I am an older brother and love my little brother and sister. My family is my life right now. I am very interested in studying business and journalism. As an avid football fan, I enjoy both watching, playing and writing about football. I have published several football articles to a website and would love to pursue a career in sports. I also enjoy playing basketball whenever I can. I can not wait to serve a mission and share the gospel with the people of paris in the French language.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Because I love being happy! I was born into the church and raised in it by two faithful and loving parents. They taught me and guided me in the gospel until I was old enough to decide for myself. I was baptized when I was eight and continued in the gospel from there. Recently I have come to see just how loving our Father in heaven is and how much he cares for us. Being a teenager is no easy task but I found we can make it through anything with faith in Jesus Christ. I love the Savior's atonement for us. It is honestly the best gift we have been given here on earth and I have learned to love it and use it often. Another reason I have remained a faithful beliver in this church is that when I go to church I feel a sense of belonging. The people are so genuine and everyone has the love of Christ. I have recently made the committment to serve a mission in the church. I can not wait to be able to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ as a Missionary in France. I love the Lord and all that he does for me. I know that this church is true and that the Book Of Mormon is the true word of God. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that he restored the gospel upon the earth. I love the Priesthood and that I have been blessed by it in my life.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in everything that I say and do. I attend church meetings every Sunday. During church I go to Sacrament meeting and participate in blessing the Sacrament through the priesthood. I go to class with the ward missionaries where we learn how to teach about our gospel. I then go to a class that teaches about my priesthood and how we are to use it for others. Right now I am preparing to be a missionary and so I study my scriptures each day. Above all I have come to know that the way I live my faith is to have faith itself. Faith in Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father to help me return to live with them again. Faith in the Prophet Thomas S. Monson and that he truly is a man of god. I live my faith always because I love it and know it to be true.
