Hi I'm Taylor James Polson

I am from Colorado. I love to skateboard and hike and run. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like doing things that are worth doing. I am planning on going to college, I am not sure where still. I love hiking and running, and skateboarding and snowboarding, and anything in the water. My favorite place in the world is Lake Powell, in Utah. I hope to get married one day and have a family and visit other parts of the world. I would like to develop a vocation that contributes to the good of mankind.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the Church. What has caused me to stay with it up to this point would be the Book of Mormon. I have read it so many times, and each time I read it, I learn something new. The gospel of Jesus Christ helps life to make more sense to me, and I know without any doubt that the way we live and the values that we believe in are true, that they help us to live the best life that we possibly can. I am so proud to be a member of this church. I love it, and I don't plan on ever leaving it. It is a part of who I am. I am 100% Christian.

How I live my faith

I am now a recently returned missionary. I am making the transition back into a normal lifestyle. I live my faith by making sure that my beliefs are in harmony with my lifestyle. My activity in the Church has helped me to become the person that I want to be. My commitment to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be active in the Church is lifelong.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Taylor James Polson
The Word of Wisdom is a health code that we live by to keep ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy. We abstain from anything addictive in nature. Some of these things include coffee, tea (the tea plant, herbal tea is fine), illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. The Word of Wisdom also encourages us to eat meat in moderation, eat lots of fruits and vegetables and grains, and to eat everything in moderation. I know that I have felt the benefits of living this Gospel principle, and I am grateful for it because it has helped me to live a healthier life style. I hope to be able to live to be a 100 years old, and I know that living the Word of Wisdom for the rest of my life will help me to be able to do that. Show more Show less
