Hi I'm Taylor

I was born in Kentucky, I grew up in Florida, I'm serving a mission in Brazil, I'm a Mormon

About Me

Alright so I'm a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I'm a huge baseball fan and I love to play golf. I went to BYU for a year before i left for my mission and It was great. I'm not a Dad yet but I think that's one of the things that I'm most excited to be. I have an older brother who's also my best friend and a younger sister who is a huge sweetheart, my parents are my biggest example, my Dad is my hero and my Mom is the biggest blessing that I have ever gotten. I don't really know what I want to do when I become a grown-up but I'll figure eventually. My favorite things to do are watch baseball or Seinfeld with my dad and brother and play golf with them as well. I love playing soccer video games and I stink at playing soccer but I love to watch. And I think that's all got for you guys.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church, I have always had the gospel in my life and I am still in the Church because of the blessings that my family has been given because of it and because I have felt the power of the Atonement in my life. I'm a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true and every time I read it I always feel loved by Heavenly Father. I'm a member of the Church because it can change peoples lives and I've seen it happen to people. Because of the Church I know that I have a Heavenly Father who wants me to be happy, and who wants to give me everything that he has, just like any Dad here on earth would want their kids to have everything they have and even more. I know that God gives us commandments because he knows the way we can be happy. I know that Christ really does love each one of us and he is full of second chances and that we can't be perfect but I know that Christ said that he wants us to try to be. I love that I have the chance to be part of an eternal family. I know that the Christ has restored His church and that I am a member of it.

How I live my faith

Right now I'm living my faith as a full-time missionary and I'm in a whole different world than I grew up, Brazil is so much different. I'm the Financial Secretary for my mission and so these days my days are full of financial problems and house contracts, at night time we go out and are normal missionaries, we visit with members and inactive members and we teach people who are interested in the Church. I'm a representative of Jesus Christ, and I try my best to live like it.
