Hi I'm Tayvin Woodall

I grew up in Utah. I love to mountain bike and hang out with friends. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Tayvin! I'm a regular guy who just graduated from Highschool. I took difficult classes and proudly got good grades. Now enjoying my last summer as a kid, I'm super stressed out about going on my mission in less than two months, but I cannot wait for my opportunity to share the gospel with the world! I love to mountain bike, I played soccer for 13 years, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, and did I mention I like video games? I'm an only child, it's lonely, but I enjoy the extra time with my parents. My parents are indeed my best friends! Once I get back from my mission in Argentina, I plan to go into Bio-medical engineering at the University of Utah, and live my life from there, and of course, to the fullest!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I could go on for days! Put simply, I know that God is our eternal Heavenly Father and that His son, Jesus Christ died for me, you, and everyone who has ever lived on this planet, so that we could live happily with the ones we love for all eternity. I know that this gospel is 110% true, that there is no other place to go to serve and feel so close to our Heavenly Creator. I have been blessed so abundantly in my life by the gospel, I can see it every day in my life. Because of this church, I know that there is a plan for me, that someone out there loves me more than I can possibly fathom. I also know that everyone here on Earth can feel the exact same way, and that is why I am dedicating two years of my life to show someone else, even if it is only one person, happiness that you can't receive anywhere else; to show them the beauty of life and the blessings Jesus Christ has given to each and every one of us. I want everyone to know and feel what I have almost taken for granted my entire life, it is my duty and obligation; my personal passion, to share this with Heavenly Father's children.

How I live my faith

I am proud to be able to exercise my priesthood so often in the area that I live. Every Sunday I have the privilege of blessing the sacrament for my ward, home teaching families in the ward, participating in mission and Temple prep, and serving my brothers and sisters in the neighborhood.
