Hi I'm Taylor

I am from California. I love sports and sun. I studied at BYU. I am a missionary in Germany. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy sports, especially lacrosse and soccer. Weightlifting was one of my favorite activities, though i have chosen to sacrifice that for the duration of my mission. I studied for a year at university before leaving on a mission. After i finish serving in Germany, i plan to continue studying there, majoring in business management.

Why I am a Mormon

The core reason of why I am a member of Christ's church is because it makes me happy. Though living a certain way is sometimes difficult, the blessings are enormous. God blesses us in so many ways. I have come into contact with so many amazing people that I know I would not have met, had I not been in this church. God really places people in our paths to teach us, though they may not even know it. I've also come to know that each person has a unique set of circumstances, which God has chosen for them. He knows us. He knows our needs, and knows what we are capable of, and what can make us the best and happiest people possible. I am a Mormon because of the love and trust I have in God-I know He wants the best for me, and every one of us.

How I live my faith

Right now I enjoy the great opportunity of serving full-time as a missionary for the LDS church. I saved money and am taking a two year break from school to be here serving the Lord. I spend my time studying the teachings of Christ and the prophets, as well as the german language. These skills help me to better serve the people here in Germany. It is extremely important to have a good understanding of the german language, in order to be able to understand and relate to the people around me in their native tongue. Just as important is a testimony and knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love visiting and sharing gospel messages with many different people, incuding some of my faith and others who are not. The chance to fully devote my life to my Father in Heaven is a great blessing.
