Hi I'm Tayton

I grew up in salt lake city. I love to ski,ride BMX ,and music. "stay strong" is a motto for my life! i'm a mormon

About Me

I love to do anything outdoors, skiing, BMX biking and camping, are just a few of the things i love to do. music is a big part of my life i played cello starting in sixth grade and played all through High School. I love post-hard core and hardcore music its my passion. i currently play bass guitar and i am in and out of bands with my friends. working on cars is another one of my hobbies. my dad gave me a 57 Chevy truck that he got from my grandfather, we have been working on restoring it.

Why I am a Mormon

in my past i was never really active in the church. i lived with my dad and i would only go to church with my grandparents. i was baptized when i was eight years old. my dad started dating my step mom and she was a member, which started to get me interested in the church again. we then moved into the community i live now and i met my best friend. my friend and his mom were really active in the church his mom would always invite to go to church with them. i started going to young Mens activities every week and i just loved the feelings i had in the church building. i then decided to take my friend up on the offer of going to church. i went to church by my self for about two years. i would wake up every Sunday and walk myself to church. my dad then saw how much my attitude was changing and started to come to church again. my dad since then has stopped smoking and drinking. he and my step mom have been sealed in the temple. because of my one friend who reached out to me it has changed my whole life. i love this church and the people in it. the gospel brings true happiness to your life. i know that Jesus Christ suffered the atonement for me and all the people in this world so we can live with or heavenly father again. i am now serving mission in the Ohio Cleveland mission and it is the best time of my life!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday and helping to prepare the sacrament most Sundays. I sometimes sub in the nursery class and teach. i do my home teaching with my dad and we often help our home teaching families by helping them get parts for cars and help them fix cars. The ward i live in is a fast growing community where people move in and out often. so i am often out helping people move in or out of our community. i really try to connect with people at there level so I am often talking with and sharing things with friends and helping them see the gospel and how it blesses my life. i often do it through sharing music and living a clean life. and by serving a mission in the Ohio Cleveland mission.
