Hi I'm Travis

I grew up in Chino Hills California. I served a mission in Vancouver Canada. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play basketball and play my guitar. I have also been happily married for 6 years and have a 3 year old daughter who is completely out going and and crazy to live with. I also have a 1 year old little boy who just started to walk, he is all over the place and hard to keep up with. They are both extremely happy and have made me the happiest dad in the world. My wife of six years is the best person I know, I couldnt imagine and world without her. She is my best friend and best example!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I prayed to my Heavenly Father if this church was true and he gave me the answer. I remember when I was a teenager and wasn't sure if this was the path that I wanted to take. I always found myself praying every night, I couldn't go to bed without praying to my Heavenly Father. One night I was praying to my Heavenly Father and I felt the impression that I needed to serve a mission. I was surprised by this because I wasn't even praying about going on a mission. I did not hesitate, because of that prayer I did serve a mission and it completely changed my life. From that time forward I continued to gain a stronger and stronger testimony of the gospel. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and wants the best for me. I know that he puts challenges in front of me to help me grow, I know that he has prepared a plan for me so that I can return to live with him. I know that the Bible and the Book Of Mormon are his words and will help us live better lives if we take time to study them. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God and he brought forth the restoration of the gospel in these modern days. I know that President Thomas Monson is the current Prophet called for our day and that by heeding his words we can understand our purpose and get through the challenging times in our lives. But most of all I know that Jesus is the Christ, that he is my Redeemer and my Savior. I know that through his atoning sacrifice that if I repent I can return to live with him and our Father in Heaven again. I love him and I thank him for all of the opportunities and blessings that I have received in this life. It is because of him that I am a member of his church and I love and thank him for everything that I have ever been given.

How I live my faith

I love working with youth, I still feel like I am sixteen years old so I relate to them. I try to show the younger generation that by living a life without drugs, alcohol, and bad influences that you can find true happiness by serving others. The way that I try to live my faith is by consistently living the gospel of Jesus Christ, and leading by example.
