Hi I'm Taylor

I grew up in Idaho. I enjoy playing baseball, volleyball, frisbee, learning, and working. I am 18 years old. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in the Boise Idaho area my whole life. I have always played baseball and ran cross country which I enjoy very much. I also like to play basketball, volleyball, and frisbee in my free time. My favorite thing is learning how to do things and teaching them to other people. I hope to go to college at BYU and study computer science or business.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the church, I have found out for myself that it is true. I have a strong testimony that this truly is the fully restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God who helped restore Christ's church and translate the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is true and I have come to know this through reading and praying about it. The spirit has confirmed these things unto me and will to whoever else that takes 'Moroni's Challenge'. I believe that the priesthood is the power of God, it gives us the ability to administer sacred ordinances and also the authority of the church has been established through it. I know that our Heavenly Father loves us very much and has made an amazing plan of happiness for us. He loves us so much that he sent his son Jesus Christ to perform the atonement, so we can be with him again some day. Heavenly Father has also given us families, which help us enjoy and succeed in this earth life. My testimony means a lot to me, this gospel makes me so happy and I know how much joy it can bring to our lives. This is why i have chosen to spend two years of my life teaching others about it. Who am I to keep this amazing Gospel to myself.

How I live my faith

I was born into the church. I try to live my faith by serving others around me. Whether it's my family, friends, or just a person in need. I try to be loving towards everyone, as i know we are all brothers and sisters. Also throughout my years i have had many callings in the church. Some of these include deacons and teachers quorum president, 1st assistant to the bishop, stake youth committee member, and home teacher. I am serving a two year mission in Papeete,Tahiti.
