Hi I'm Elder Justin Taylor

I am a missionary serving in Yekaterinburg, Russia, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for the church serving in Yekaterinburg, Russia. I love music-especially playing percussion. I was in drumline at my school for all four years and hope to use my talents for the rest of my life. I am going to BYU after my mission to study Elementary Education to be a teacher some day

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised all my life as a Mormon, but recently, I have gained my own testimony at the great youth programs youth conference and EFY. I had so much fun, and I learned a lot about the scriptures. I have graduated from seminary and had a great time. I know the church is true and I love it. I love the scriptures and the prophet, and I know he is the only true prophet on the earth. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and restored the gospel and the priesthood, and I know I hold it. I just love the gospel of Jesus Christ!

How I live my faith

I graduated from seminary, and try to be an example in everything I do. I am currently serving a mission for the church in Russia. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and I try to remember and emulate him in everything I do.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Elder Justin Taylor
We don't worship Joseph Smith. We respect him for all that he has done for the Church and for the Earth. He was a true prophet of God who restored the Gospel in these latter-days. We worship our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
