Hi I'm Talon Ming

I'm a Mormon. I am born and raised in California. I am a landscape contractor.

About Me

I come from a big family. I am now a dad with 8 kids, raising a big family today is alot of fun. It turns many heads and gets others attention. We love to boat as a family, especially waterski and wakeboard. I enjoy sports but don't play anymore, because I have found being my kids #1 fan is just as much fun for me. Watching Soccer, Lacrosse, Baseball, Basketball, singing concerts and even plays keeps me pretty busy with my free time I volunteer coach and referee. I love to work outside creating beauty with my hands, I even get paid to do it. I love to sing and go on dates with my wife.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a mormon, but I continue to be a mormon not because it's easy but because I love the feelings I have when I serve in the church and especially teach the youth of the church. My testimony grows the more I serve and help others, then my belief in mankind grows and I look to the possitives of the world. The Church gives me hope and a warmth inside that I haven't found anywhere else. When I have been separated from the Church a darkness takes over and I focus more on the doom and gloom of the world, it was too depressing. My testimony brings me light: I know the gospel was restored to the Earth by a Prophet, I do not worship him but have great love and respect for him and the sacrifices he made for us. I know God lives, He knows me! He loves me! He is intrested in the little things of my life. His Son Jesus Christ lived for me as an example for me to follow and he died so I will live with Them again even in their presence. The Book of Mormon was written by Prophets of old and was translated by a modern Prophet even Joseph Smith and when I read it I find secrets to help me through good and difficult times. I follow a living Prophet his name is Thomas S. Monson and I know he follows the desires of God and He helps us find easier ways to return to the Heavenly Father. This is my Testimony that I hold firm to in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I find great joy in teaching my family to be BETTER. I love to visit the widows and the elderly and learn what they have found to be helpful in life. To hear them speak lovingly of their families and to hear what becomes most important to them in the later years of life. I love to volunteer in things like Soccer, Baseball, and Boy Scouts helping my kids and other kids to do things that are fun and rewarding to them. I love to teach youth from my lifes experiences how to figure out what will make them truly happy. I really enjoy teaching adults about family relations, about how to have joy in there families and with their spouses. How to nuture a love into a fulfilling life and how to fing Joy. I look forward to Monday nights when our family gets together and we sing songs, read from the scriptures, plan our week, learn more of the virtues we should bring to our lives,have a fun activity and then get to eat treats. It's a highlight of the week.
