Hi I'm Taylor

I grew up in Utah and I just graduated high school. I am getting ready to serve my mission in Brazil. I am a Mormon

About Me

I just graduated high school in the top 10% of my class. I also graduated early and was able to get a year of college in before my mission. School has always been a very important part of my life and I tried my best. I love to play soccer and do various other sports like wake boarding, snow boarding fencing and others. I also like to play video games and hang out with my friends. I'm also not sure what else to put in this box!:)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the church. I was baptized when I was 15 years old. My immediate family is inactive and I learned about the church through grandparents and friends. It was through a friend and her family that I was able to meet with the missionaries and learn more about something I had only heard my grandparents talk about. when the missionaries taught me I felt something warm and peaceful each time they came over. I loved the feeling and sought to keep it with me, I followed what the missionaries told me to do and received their glad message with an open heart. I was soon baptized and confirmed a member of the church. I have been blessed by that decision ever since. I have had to go to church alone since I was baptized but I have never really felt alone. I am always welcomed by others and extended a warm hand of friendship. I have come to know my savior and the love he has for me and am starting to see the plan he has set forth for me. My testimony in him has grown stronger as I strive to live and keep his commandments and follow his teachings. I have read the book of Mormon seven and a half (in progress) times and each time I learn something new and my testimony is strengthened that it is the true word of god, that it surely testifies of Christ and his people. I stand as a witness of its ability to change peoples lives and give them purpose. I also have a strong testimony that this is the one true church on this earth today that Jesus Christ himself restored his gospel through Joseph Smith and now leads it through his prophet Pres. Monson. I have a great love for my father which is in heaven and I know of his great love for me as well. I know that I am his son and I love having his influence and strength in my life. I strive each and every day to have his spirit to be with me for I know that nothing else matters as long as he is by my side. I wish there was more room to share what I know to be true, but I share these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I do my best to serve those around me. I have had many great opportunities to work with my fellow youth through some of the callings I've been blessed with. I was able to counsel and encourage my fellow classmates to stay strong and be happy while in high school as a member of seminary counsel. I try my best to stay on top of my home teaching and visit the families I have been assigned to to make sure they are doing ok and are checked up on. these are just some of the examples of things I have been able to do thus far. I have recently been called to serve a mission in Brazil and I cant wait to share the gospel with them!
