Hi I'm Taylor Goldsberry

I'm 21 and participate in about every sport you can think of. I ran track and cross country. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I ran track and cross country at my high school in Utah. I ran the 800 meter and the 400 meter. I love those races. Nothing better than those events. The speed and distance; I love it. I enjoy about any sport you can think of. Playing, watching, you name it. I love trying out all sorts of new sports. I love watching the Olympics. That is probably my favorite sport, after basketball of course. But I love the summer Olympics the best. I love watching the unique sports in those Olympics. Field Hockey, Water Polo, Modern Pentathlon, Badminton, Table Tennis, Handball. You name it, I love watching it. Along with watching and playing sports, I love watching movies. I could watch the old Disney movies like Lion King and Beauty and the Beast all day. I also love writing stories. Short stories, long stories. Whatever comes to mind. I love being able to have control in a world that I have created and love. The possibilities are endless, with writing, and I love having that ability to create anything in the way I want it. I have the great goal to go to college after I am done serving my mission in San Antonio, Texas and study to become a Physical Therapist. I love the satisfaction of seeing people progress to becoming better and healed. I would love to help out the athletes more since I love sports and never liked being injured or being told I couldn't play. I want to be that person that helps them get to what they want.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born Mormon and still am Mormon. I was raised by two very loving parents that live and teach the gospel. Their example was a very deep part in me being a member. But of course, you need to know for yourself and not lean on someone else's conversion. I have my own conversion. That is the one and big reason why I am Mormon. Just like in this church, the Book of Mormon is the keystone to my testimony. I know, without a doubt in my mind, that it is a true book from God. Just as the bible, it teaches the essential truths that all need to know, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Whenever I need something the Book of Mormon is always there for me. It gives me clues on how I can live my life to better fulfill the role I am supposed to play. The greatest lesson that I learn is that even though I have weaknesses, those weaknesses can be made strong. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet because of the Book of Mormon. If the Book of Mormon is the word of God than Joseph Smith was a true prophet. Because he translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God. The invitation to read and to know is always there for everyone. I did and I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God to us, specifically. I would not be where I am today without the knowledge of that I have gained from knowing that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I am so grateful to be a Mormon and how that has blessed my life.

How I live my faith

I live in Utah so living my faith is a little bit easier because most everyone I associate with is the same faith as me. But we all live a little differently. Right now for me it is easy to show how I live my faith because I am devoting two years of my life to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and proclaim my faith every single day. But I also live my faith by doing the small and simple things everyday. Reading my scriptures. Trying to become a better person. Overcome my weaknesses and become a better person to be around. Helping out those that need comforting. Always being there for my family. The small and little things of everyday life that sometimes seem to go unnoticed are examples of how I live my faith. Everyday life I am living my faith.
