Hi I'm Taylor

I grew up in Utah. I am the oldest of seven boys. I just graduated at the top of my class. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I will be serving a mission in Oklahoma starting in August 2013. When I get back I plan on attending college. Some of my hobbies and interests include basketball, music, camping, fishing, hiking, and hanging out with family. I played on my high school varsity basketball team. I also ran cross country and played baseball. I was acedemic all state in basketball and cross country. I played the trombone in high school and was in the jazz band from eighth grade to the time I graduated. I have also taken piano lessons for a few years.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the gospel and have always known it to be true. During my younger years I relied on my parents testimonies, but I have gained one for myself. I continue to follow this church because I know that it is the one and only true church on the earth today. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed to find out if it was true and I did receive an answer. I know that Joseph Smith restored Christ's church upon the earth today. I know that we do have a living prophet upon the earth today and his name is Thomas S. Monson. I know that the Lord reveals his doctrine today through the prophet and that is how we receive revelation today. I know that our Heavenly Father answers our prayers and that if we follow christ's example we will be blessed. I am also grateful for Christ and the sacrifice that he made for me and everyone else which is the atonement. Without the gift of the atonement which allows me to be forgiven of my sins, I don't know what I would do. I am so glad I am part of this gospel and I don't know where I would be without it.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week. I am currently a priest but will soon be ordained an elder. I am the secretary in this group of priest's, so I keep track of attendance and different activities that we do. Some of these activities that we do includes service projects to help various members of our community. We try to set an example for others. I am a home teacher with my father to two different families in our ward. I try to read my scriptures because they can be a great tool in helping my life and others as well.
