Hi I'm Taylor

I was born and raised in Ashton, Idaho! and am currently serving my mission in the Great Kentucky Louisville Mission!!!

About Me

I love to play basketball, and pretty much any other sport, even though I'm not good at it. I love to laugh and especially to make others laugh. I plan to pursue a career in the medical field but first I am going to serve my mission. I want to attend BYU and then medical school at the University of Utah. I've done musicals, high school sports, parties and I just love to be with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been raised in the Gospel, like Nephi, I was born of goodly parents. They've taught me everything I need to know. I've grown up in a community that's strong in my faith. Yet, I wasn't truly converted, until I was 16 almost 17. I chose to become a Mormon, because when everything else stopped making sense, this Gospel did. When my life took a turn at every street for the worst, the Lord and His gospel and His church was right there waiting for me to get on board and help me. This Gospel has brought peace to my life, and a love and confidence that I could never have had without it. I chose to be a Mormon, because I love this Church and I love my Savior. I want to live with him and my family again, forever.

How I live my faith

I am serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As a missionary not only do I proclaim the gospel, but I also share with anyone who will listen to me about the Saviors love for each of us individually. I serve whenever I am blessed with the opportunity to do so. I strengthen the weak and comfort the weary as best I can. I also pray a lot to my Father in Heaven, and I know that He answers my prayers and that He takes care of me. Honestly, I just try to be like Jesus, because He is the perfect example of how to live.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

I've come to know my Father in Heaven best by my personal prayers that I say every day. I learned that when I pray, I should actually pray as if the person was there, because He is. He hears every word you say. Vocal prayer is an incredible way to feel your Father's presence. I also learned to pay attention to what I pray for, and to watch for the answers, because they do come. Just like it says in James 1:5, "ask and ye shall receive..." Show more Show less

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

A wise man once said that all evil needs to succeed is for good men(people) to do nothing. This is the reason pornography has become an epidemic. It's a taboo subject that no one really wants to talk about, but that is exactly how you combat it. We need to have a voice about it, revealing the truths about this horrible evil that is everywhere in our society. Pornography at its very core, is evil. It will do nothing but destroy you. It can be as addictive as any drug, and all it takes is a little peek. The truth about pornography is that it is a lie, designed to feed you false truths about sexuality. To stop the spread is to start with the truth, and the truth shall make all of us free. Show more Show less
