Hi I'm Trev

I sing songs, I write songs, I love history and reading, and I`m a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I`m Trev. At least that`s what my sisters call me. I grew up with 5 of them, yet no brothers. Sometimes people ask me if it was hard not having a brother, I don`t really know, but I don`t feel like I`ve missed out on anything. My sisters have been so much fun and I have learned so much from them. As for my current interests, as a child I didn`t really see them as being future interests, but somehow that is what they became. To begin, I love music; especially singing and the piano. Toward the end of my 16th year, I started playing around on the keys and picking out some really simple music. I was terrible, but somehow it became a sort of stress reliever for me and I began playing regularly, experimenting with my own melodies, and sometimes writing my own simple versions of songs that I heard on the radio. I never had a teacher, but I learned to love the piano on my own and will definitely continue playing it throughout my life. Another hobby of mine, is history. In middle school I wasn`t too much into history, just your average, `ugh, another hour of Columbus` student. However in high school, I took an advanced history class and as I began to study it in depth and began to see how well things in the past relate to current events, my curiosity was peaked. I became that strange kid who actually enjoyed reading his history textbook. ;) Currently, I am hard at work studying and learning the Japanese language, and have really enjoyed this endeavor as well.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, to begin, I would have start somewhere back in mid-1800`s England, when many of my ancestors joined the church. Through their stories and examples, as well as those of my parents, grandparents, and friends, I was able to see the good that this church can bring into the lives of those who live it`s teaching. However wonderful this was, it wasn`t enough to personally convince me of it`s truth. That is something I had to find out on my own. There have been many things that have helped lead me to a knowledge of the truth of this church, but one very important step was gaining a desire or a reason that I should believe. For me that reason is written in the Book of Mormon, in Ether 12:4; `Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.` That perfectly explains my original desire to believe in God, I wanted to know for myself if there truly was life after death, if once more, after this life, I would be able to meet my Grandpa and others who have passed on before me. I wanted that knowledge to be an `anchor to my soul`. Because of that desire, I began to pray more fervently, to read more diligently from the scriptures, and also to do the things that scriptures ask us we should do, to find out for myself whether or not these things were true. It didn`t come all at once, it was gradual, but now I have been blessed with a testimony for myself, as well as a multitude of small miracles I recieve every day from following the teachings of the Savior and his church. It started with just a desire to believe, but it has become so much more.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by just trying to be the best I can be, by loving my family and trying to befriend others, and by striving to follow the example that Christ has set.
