Hi I'm Taylor

I grew up on a farm, in a small town in Missouri. I love being active and being outside. I also LOVE basketball.

About Me

I grew up having a big family, I have seven siblings and I have loved every part of it. I am currently attending BYU-I and am hoping to get into the nursing program. It's tough but I love it, I love learning and love being able to do so in the lords school, where the spirit is always here. I love being outside and enjoy hiking and rock climbing and pretty much anything that has to do with outside. The gospel has been a huge part of my life and I wouldn't want it any other way. Some people say they wish there weren't so many rules, but honestly I am so grateful for them. They have helped make me who I am today, they have influenced my choices, and mostly I am just so grateful for them because they have brought me so much closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been born and raised in the church, but i have gained my own personal testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that he loves me and wants me to return to him. I know that Joseph Smith translated the golden plates through the power and will of God. I know that through the atonement of Christ everyone can return back to live with our Heavenly Father, when they do all they can, and follow the repentance process. I also know that through the atonement we can become more like Christ. I know that He loves us all because we are his children, and the love he has for each and everyone of us can not be measured. I know that I am a daughter of God, and knowing this helps me live the best life I can, for him. I know that the Plan of Salvation is real and is perfect. I know that families are forever and I am so grateful for that. I know that God has a purpose for every thing. I know that as I grow and strive to be better I will be blessed with more knowledge. I know that this church is true and that it is lead by modern day prophets, who get direct revelation from our Heavenly Father. I know that serving others will bring us closer to the Savior and will bring us happiness. I know that this church is true.

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith is through my actions. I grew up where there weren't very many members of the church. This was a huge blessing for me because I have been able to live by faith by my actions. By doing this some of my friends have noticed that I don't do certain stuff. This has helped stand up for what I truly believe in, and helped me make standards for myself instead of just doing things because I was supposed to, I lived the way did because I wanted to become more like my Savior. Not only do I live my faith outwardly, but more importantly I live my faith inwardly. I do the little things that others may not see, I read the words of the prophets, I say my personal prayers. All in all the way the way I live my faith is by living my life in a way the God would want me to live.
