Hi I'm James Lowell Taylor

I was born and raised near Salt Lake City Utah, I have been called to serve in the France, Lyon Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports and to be active. I love to serve others and to see smiling faces from something i have done. I cannot wait to go out and serve a mission for the church, and i will work my hardest to be the best missionary i can be.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know that this gospel is true. I am a Mormon because i know that what the book of Mormon teaches is true, and that Joseph smith was a true prophet of God and he saw God the father and his son Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon, I live it and i love it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing all that i can to try to be like Christ. he is the center of my life and i look to him in all that i do and say. Christ is our perfect example and i look to him in all i do. I love to look out for people and let them know that they are always loved and cared for.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

James Lowell Taylor
Not all Mormons are required to serve a mission. It is strongly requested that young men from the ages of 18 to 21 serve a mission for two years. this is up to the young men whether or not they are ready or want to, but i have never come across a returned missionary who went out into the world and served with all there heart, might, mind and strength, who didn't love it and learn and grow from it. It is a young women's decision to serve a mission and they can serve from the age of 19 and up. A mission is not required of anyone, we all have our agency. but it is highly recommended of young men and those who feel like they need to serve. from my childhood to now i have been taught that a mission is..."leaving your family and loved ones behind for two years, so that you can help others be with there families forever".
