Hi I'm Talon

I live in Idaho. I love riding 4-wheelers and motorcycles and playing basketball with my friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old. I have worked on my family farm all of my life. I am finally out of high school and I am about to serve a mission in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. I love going camping and spending time with family and friends. I plan to go to college in Utah after I finish my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in an area where most of my neighbors and friends are Mormon. I can't say that is the main reason I am a Mormon, but seeing the happiness that the gospel brings into so many lives around me gave me the desire to learn for myself. It takes time and faith, but continual prayer and study have shown me that this is God's true church. I have gone through trials in my life that have seemed too tough and I have seen others go through even greater trials. Relief and happiness have only come to me after I humble myself and ask Heavenly Father for help. He comforts my mind and leads me to scriptures and people that make everything ok. I have seen His hand in my life and feel His love so strongly, especially when I put forth my best effort to live His commandments and do what His prophet and other Church leaders have counseled us to do.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying each day to become a better person. I, like any other person, have many weaknesses. I try to find those weaknesses and make them stronger. I look to others as examples. I see the good deeds and kind gestures others do and try to follow their example. I am also living my faith by going on a mission to teach others about the Lord's Church and His Gospel. It has brought so much happiness and comfort into my life, especially in times of need. The gospel is something that I feel I must share because of that. I want others to feel the happiness I feel and the love their Heavenly Father has for them.
