Hi I'm Trevor Abrams

I grew up in Idaho. I served in Iraq with the Idaho Army National Guard. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Utah but moved to Idaho while still very young and although we stayed in Idaho we moved around a lot. I went to Elementary school in West Side Idaho, Middle school and part of High school in Idaho falls Idaho, and I graduated High school in Star Valley Wyoming. During the summer of my Junior year of High School I joined the Idaho army National Guard. I went to basic training and advanced individual training at Fort Sill Oklahoma. After my training I spent two years in Hawaii as a missionary. When I got home from my mission I started school at BYU Idaho and shortly there after met my wife. Two days after we got married, we got a message from my first sergeant letting us know that our unit had been selected for a deployment to Iraq. Just before I left for my mobilization training we found out that my wife was pregnant with our first. Our little girl was born just a few hours after I landed back in Idaho for my two weeks of leave. That has been one of the highlights of my life. I am back home now, finishing school. We are expecting our second little girl and will both graduate in the next year.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life. I was born into a family with strong LDS beliefs. Although I have always loved the messages shared by the church, it wasn't until I left home for basic training with the military that I truly learned to love the Gospel. I am a Mormon because of the our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for his atonement on my behalf that allows me to be forgiven for my sins and also strengthens me in times of weakness. I also love the teaching on Gods plan for families. I am so happy to know that my wife and I will be together after this life is over.

How I live my faith

My responsibilities in our church is to ensure that all the families in our congregation needs are met. I am assigned to two families specifically and i visit them at least once a month, but we live close enough we usually see each other each week.
