Hi I'm Taylor

I grew up in Melbourne, Australia. I am an athlete who loves sports, friends and striving to be the best I can be. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for my whole life. I am a laid back type of person who is willing to listen to whatever someone has to say. I love to play sport and participate in physical activity, but more specifically I enjoy playing Tennis, Basketball and fitness training. My family means the world to me and I would do anything for them, I love them so much. I enjoy relaxing and just reading a book or my scriptures because it makes me feel comfortable and peaceful. I believe that we all have a purpose on this earth and that we are children of our loving Heavenly Father. As I look to the future, I see myself being married and having a family. More specifically I want to raise my children in this gospel and to teach them the correct principles in order to fulfil my quest of being a good father. My dream job is to be an exercise physiologist and to help people in rehabilitating their injuries or restrictions to live a healthy life. I have a phobia of snakes and I would love to overcome this phobia in the near future.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Mormon because i know that in my heart this church is the only true living church on this earth today. I have felt, through the Holy Ghost, feelings in my heart that testify of the truthfulness of this Gospel of Jesus Christ. Everyone assumes that when someone grows up as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that it is an easy decision. Although being taught by loving parents the basic principles of the Gospel, I have come to know for myself through prayer, fasting and constantly pondering about things I have studied, that The Church of Jesus Christ is true. Without a doubt I know it. I have come to know, through the Holy Ghost and its promptings, that the Book of Mormon is true and that Jesus Christ, through the Prophet Joseph Smith, restored this Gospel back on the earth today and that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon. I know we have a living prophet today, Thomas S. Monson, who is the Lords chosen representative to lead and guide this church. I know that our saviour Jesus Christ suffered and atoned for all of our sins so that we can have the opportunity to return to live with our Heavenly Father again. I know that if we live and keep the commandments of God, we will experience true happiness and joy in this life and in the life to come. I made this decision for myself and have felt the Holy Ghost really testify to me that these things are true.

How I live my faith

I strive to be the best person I can be by living the commandments of God. By doing this, it enables me to have a peaceful, happy and comefortable life. I can really feel the difference when I am obeying Gods commandments and the blessings that come from living in this way are just indescribable.
