Hi I'm Taylor

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I love sports, especially football and basketball. I ran track and field in high school and plan to continue running in college after my mission. I love music and play the trombone and the piano. I also really love to dance, any dance really, but especially hip hop. I have grown up in a family of 9 now and I love every single one of them. I am preparing to serve my mission in San Bernardino California.

Why I am a Mormon

As I have prepared to serve my mission, I have tried to gain my own personal knowledge that this is true. In the last year, I have studied out my scriptures daily and prayed daily to my Heavenly Father. By doing this I have received so much revelation from my Heavenly Father on what to do with my life and what He wants for me. As I have prayed also I have been given knowledge of the truthfulness of this gospel and have learned for myself that the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith, our prophet Thomas S. Monson, our savior Jesus Christ and the Atonement, all of it is true. In this last year I have studied them out and found this to be true. I am not a perfect person. I have made many awful sins and mistakes in my life already, and without the Atonement I do not know where i would be. I felt that I was inadequate many times as I have prepared to serve. The Lord has revealed to me though through my scripture study and prayer that that is not the case. He has shown me how much love he has for me personally and every single one of His children. The Atonement alone has brought me more peace of mind and taken away so much more of the guilt I had than anything else could. I am forever grateful to my savior for his sacrifice for me personally. I love this gospel and know now that there is no other way back to my Heavenly Father and eternal life with my family than this. I have learned for myself that there is nothing on this Earth that can bring me more lasting happiness than this gospel. I have seen true miracles happen through this church. I KNOW that this church is the true church of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving on my Stake Youth Committee. I do my best to help all the youth in my community to grow in all aspects of their lives. I do my best to show my faith to others by my example. I always try to remember who i represent and make decisions that reflect positively on that. I also try to find opportunities to serve those around me to show my faith.
