Hi I'm Taft

Hi, I'm Taft. Biology Major, Rugby Player, Musician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Proud to be an Okie. I have so many interests it's hard to pick one. Oklahoma football is probably the best thing ever. But my favorite sport to play is rugby. I played rugby in high school and briefly at College. My current favorite athletic activity to do is weight lifting and crossfit. I've always loved music. I play the mandolin in a folk band. My favorite artists are The Avett Brothers, Copeland, Barcelona, Ed Sheeran and my guilty pleasure is Irish Traditional Music (but i dont listen to that with anyone else around.) Most importantly, I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and my family.

Why I am a Mormon

BECAUSE THE CHURCH IS TRUE. Seriously, it is. The only way to know for yourself is to see for yourself. Keep the commandments, read daily in the scriptures and above all else, pray. There is only one way to know if God is real and that is by reaching out to him. One of my all time favorite passages is Alma 32:21. This passage tells us that having faith doesn't mean to have a perfect knowledge of God, it all starts with a little bit of hope in the Truth that he has provided.

How I live my faith

I am so grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ. One of my all time favorite scriptures is 2 Corinthians 12:9. His Grace is sufficient for his power is made perfect in weakness. As I strive to become a better man it becomes more and more apparent that only by living the gospel do I become who I am meant to be. It doesn't matter how far you've fallen the Lord knows no depth so far that he will not come for you to bring you back home. I think that's an important concept to always remember and I try to apply it in my life by reaching out to others.
