Hi I'm Taylor Earnshaw

I love to play sports and try new things. I'm currently serving in the Maryland Baltimore Mission! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love being out doors, traveling to new places, and trying new things. I also did photography. Hmmm...favorite place to be would be on a beach somewhere with my dog and slushy in hand! I love sports especially volleyball and soccer! I just love having fun and being with my family and friends! I love boating with friends, meeting new people.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Hmm..Well that's easy, because I love it and I know that its is true!! I'm a Mormon because I have tested it out for myself. I was raised in the church but there was a time in my life where things weren't the best. I wasn't doing all that my Heavenly Father would want me to do. I fell away for a short time and it wasn't long before felt completely confused and alone. I didn't know where to turn and I was scared that I had strayed too far for my Father in Heaven to forgive me for what I had done. But I remember getting down on my knees and pleading with my Father to forgive me and love me again. I felt my Father in Heavens love so powerfully, telling me that no matter what I had done or gone through that he was there for me the whole time, that He never had left me alone. I have a strong testimony of my Father in Heaven and Savior Jesus Christ. The atonement is real! And now as a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ I have the blessing of sharing that truth with all those that I come in contact with! I'm a Mormon, I have had experiences where my faith as been tried and I have looked to the Lord for help and He was there, the whole time even when its hard to feel Him there. I'm a Mormon because I have a testimony of the restored gospel on the earth and I know that this isn't man's church, this is the church of God! I have never seen God or any sort of vision but i have felt the power of Holy Spirit confirm this truth to my heart. God has created a Plan of Happiness that has blessed me and has made me more happy than anything the world could provide me. I know that I have a Savior, that with out Him I would never be able to make it back. He loves me so much that he took upon himself my sins, pains, and my heart aches so that i could make it back to Him and our Father. I know for myself that this is true! Its true and it is beautiful! ! I believe in Christ! So come what may.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday, of course i'm not perfect. And I am yet to find someone who is except for my Lord Jesus Christ. I try to be like Him as much as possible by smiling and loving everyone that I come in contact with. Serving people even if that means just shooting them a text, letting them know that I love them and hope they are doing well. When trials come I try to have faith instead of doubts. Looking to my Heavenly Father for help through times that I am scared and feel alone. But to be honest, when I think about living my faith I feel that loving and not judging, and accepting everyone that I meet! Knowing that they are also a child of God.
