Hi I'm Travis

I grew up in South eastern Idaho. I later served a mission in Brazil. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Living in north Idaho give me a great opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. Swimming and boating in our wonderful lakes is one of my favorite things. And when the weather cools of i love to hit the mountains and go snowboarding. Three months ago I got married to my wife Rose. She is from Brazil which gives us a great amount of culture in our house, in our food, and entertainment.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to look deeper into the faith of my parents when i was sixteen. I saw how close my family was and how happy and blessed we were. When so many people broke under their struggles, i saw how my parents faced them with faith and overcame them better people. I wanted that in my life. I chose to live the teachings and apply them in my life. It grew so evident that the commandments are for our benefit and happiness. That was ten years ago when i began to look at the church for myself. I am now married and soon will have my own kids. I want the same chances for them that my parents gave me. The gospel abounds in our home. Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and he continues to teach us through his prophet that he has called in our day.

How I live my faith

Faith is something that we are taught comes thought our actions. That is why Service is so important in our church. There is no paid clergy, so everything that is done is though service. Currently i have been called to be a sunday school teacher. Each week i prepare an hour long lesson to teach an adult class. We are studying the New Testament at this time. Along with callings, comes acts of service. Being young and strong, I are often called to help people with moves or other physical labor on nearly a weekly basis. Service is truly one way to forget your trubles and focus on the good you can do for others.
