Hi I'm Trevor Mauzy

I love sports and exercise. I'm preparing to be a physical therapist. I enjoy seeing others improve. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a physical therapy student at Touro University Nevada. My whole life I have enjoyed being active and playing sports including football, basketball, soccer, and lacrosse. I also have a penchant for exercise. From many rewarding experiences in my life of helping and serving people, I realize that i want my career to involve motivating people and improving their lives. A combination of all these things is what makes me want to be a physical therapist. I find myself being shy in some situations, but in other situations I am fairly outgoing. I don't really know why that is. I guess God wants me to keep learning.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a home with LDS (Mormon) parents. They taught me to love God and show kindness to everyone. They also taught me about all of the teachings in the church, and about the Bible and the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. My parents also taught me that it is not enough to believe what they have taught me. That I could know for myself that these things are from God, and that God Himself would tell me. I thought to myself, "he would be too busy to personally speak to me." I had friends and other people in my life whom I looked up to, that testified of LDS faith, and they inspired me to find out for myself. When I was 15, I took on a challenge to read the Book of Mormon in 3 months. For me this was a lot. I was also encouraged to pray and asked God if the Book of Mormon is true and if the LDS church is the true church of God. I did, and through the process of reading and finishing the Book of Mormon, I gained a testimony that Jesus Christ is my personal savior, and that God in fact is not too busy to speak to me personally. I felt His love, which was greater than anything I had ever felt in my life. I also looked back on those three months and realized that I had become a happier person, full of desire to serve others. This change came through the power of God. There are times when I need to renew my faith in God, but every time I seek to be closer to God, I feel it happen. I know God lives, that He loves us, and that He has a plan for us. If we seek the truth with all our hearts, we WILL find it. I know that God wants all of us to return to d Him, and that we can be with our families forever even in the next life.

How I live my faith

In my life, I have struggled with various trials. Things like addictions, depression, insecurity, and low self-esteem. This is something I have to continuously work at. As I do things that bring me closer to Christ (meaning learning of Him, and doing the same things He did when He lived on earth), I find healing and deliverance from my trials. I know the savior is real because I have experimented with faith many times, and it always works. It is not an easy thing to accept, but I know God is real. I feel His divine power as I seek Him. Particular things I have done to live my faith is to reach out to others who are struggling with depression or addictions or anything. This is what Christ would do. As I help others in their trials, I find healing in my trials.
