Hi I'm Tavish Nelson

I grew up in St. George, Utah. I am a huge fan of rugby. I love my family. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have always been raised in the Gospel and have made it a huge part of my life. I love to play the violin, and I am into a lot of sports and have been my whole life. I play football, rugby, and I wrestle. I have played the violin for about 8 years. I love to learn crazy fiddle songs because they are so much fun and a good challenge to overcome. I have about a year done of university, mostly just took general classes. I really enjoy the human body and how it works. That interest resulted in me wanting to become a physical therapist or a family practitioner, or maybe even a nurse practitioner, I don't know. We'll see what the Lord has in store for me. I love to be healthy by working out and eating good food (both healthy and not so much). I love to be out in the woods in my cabin and enjoy the creations God has given us. Nature is a beautiful thing. I like to ride dirt bikes and go out into the sandy mountains and just ride/explore. I love spending time with my family while at the cabin. I love this gospel because it has brought my family closer to each other as well as closer to God.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this is the only true church on the Earth today. Why? Because I have prayed for myself and asked God Himself if this is the right path. I bear testimony that this is the right path. Even though I was raised in the church, I still had to find out for myself if this is true. The only way you can find out if this is the true church is to simply pray, ask our Heavenly Father if it is, and I promise as a representative of Jesus Christ, you will receive an answer if you are truly wanting to know. Moroni 10:4-5 in the Book of Mormon. I love the Book of Mormon. It is the most true book on the Earth this day and forever. You will come closer to God, your family, and yourself by reading this book then any other book. Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God to restore His true church once again. Through Joseph's dilligence and heed, this great work is taking place. Through him, we have the magestic words of the Book of Mormon, that he translated by the power of God from the Golden Plates. I know prayer is real and it works. It has blessed my life in so many ways, I can not even describe. God loves me and I know he loves you as well as each of His children.

How I live my faith

I have been called of God to "Invite others to come unto Christ, by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end." I do this by earnestly trying to find and teach people who are not of our faith so that they can come to know themselves how much God really loves them and how they can better their lives, strengthen their families, and be truly happy. Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can all be happy no matter what situation we are in. All we have to do is "come unto [Him]". One thing that really helps me live my faith is making sure I do the little things every day that bring me closer to Jesus Christ. A Book of Mormon prophet wrote "by small and simple things are great things brought to pass." It is daily feasting upon the words of Christ and daily communion with God that we can come unto Him. It has helped so much in my life. I love the Book of Mormon and the Bible for that very reason.
