Hi I'm Taylor Hunter

I'm served my mission in Knoxville, Tennessee, and enjoying life being a Latter-Day Saint.

About Me

The thing about me is that I am from a family that is there to put others first in line to help, rather than to helping themselves. Another thing about me is that I was adopted when I was born. My hobbies consist of playing video games, listening to country music, and riding my bike, A LOT! I'm a high school graduate 2012 and plan on to attend college when I return. I served my mission in the Tennessee Knoxville Mission. I have helped many people come closer to Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I'm a Mormon is not just because I was born into the church, it is because I have "CHOSEN" it for myself, and that I should do what is in harmony with what the Lord has planned for me personally (Mormon 9:27 & Ether 12:6). Even though, I've made personal plans for myself in the future, but if the Lord has different plans than what I have planned, I will follow his plans, even if it means a big deal of sacrifices in the future. Besides that, I have seen many other Latter Day-Saints sacrifice many things in their lives. By that, they have blessed many others, showed examples to others that have looked up to them and have also blessed themselves. So, I have taken the spot for making the sacrifices from my life to bless many other people, setting the examples for other, including for my family, while I, myself, and my family were being blessed at the same time. I have witnessed many blessing in my life, willing to share them to those that are willing to hear them, and willing to give them blessings that they stand in need of.

How I live my faith

How I lived my faith is that I've served a mission for two whole years in Tennesse, Kentucky, Georgia, Virgina and North Carolina, in an area that is overly populated by many other faiths. How I also lived my faith is by listening to the Holy Ghost and to my feeling on what I need to do that is in harmony with what the Lord has in store for me. It has been rough dealing with those that like to Bible-Bash. But, I have learned to be patient and being humble, and I am here to teach the word of God to those that are searching for it, and He has given me this task to teach them with all my might, same as with the other missionaries that are serving on their missions, even though I am no longer a missionary.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Taylor Hunter
Nope, Mormons(Latter-day Saints) are not required to go on a mission. The reason why they go is because that we have a drive to go out and proclaim the gospel like how the Saviour's Apostles did in the biblical times. At this point in time, young men are recommended to go on their mission when they have graduated from high school and who are 18 and worthy to go on one. Young women are not recommended, but are allowed to go on one when they have reched the age of 19, if they so chose to go on one. The prophet, President Thomas S. Monson said that it is a "Priesthood Duty." Even though that the young women donnot hold the priesthood, they are still allowed to go on a mission to recieve great expereinces and magnificent blessings from what they are experiencing and what they have experienced. Senior couples are even allowed to go, even more, encouraged to go when they have prepared physically, financially, mentally and spiritually. Missionaries can serve in any part of the world based on their backround of education and their language studies. I, myself, am serving on a mission in Knoxville, Tennessee where many of the truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been twisted and bended to the peoples interests instead of what it is actually saying.
