Hi I'm Taylor Johnston

I am a missionary. I'm a Navy brat. I have Asperger's Syndrome. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I was growing up, being a Navy brat, I lived all over the country. I am an avid reader. I do well at math and science. I was a college student. I enjoy watching movies and playing video games. I am currently serving a 2-year mission for the Church in Hawaii.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church, but I didn't really have my own testimony until my teenage years when I started to read the Book of Mormon for myself and pray to know if it was true. Every time I pray to know if it is true, I get a warm feeling in my heart, and I know that it is true. When I read the Book of Mormon, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and that he was inspired of God to translate the Book of Mormon. Since I have been serving a mission, I have gained a greater love for the Book of Mormon. I have also gained a greater love for my Savior Jesus Christ and His Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I have worked with missionaries to help them teach people the gospel. I am now serving a mission, where I have the opportunity to share with others my faith in Jesus Christ and His restored Church.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Taylor Johnston
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It goes hand in hand with the Bible and answers the questions of the soul. The Book of Mormon contains a record of the former inhabitants of the American continent. Their ancestors, led by Lehi, a prophet of God, left Jerusalem 600 years before the birth of Christ. God called prophets among these people to teach His word. The Book of Mormon contains the teachings of those prophets. After His death and resurrection, Jesus Christ appeared to the people in the Americas and taught His gospel. The book contains His teachings and testifies of Him. The Book of Mormon says that those who read it and pray about it sincerely can know it is true though the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less
