Hi I'm Trevor

I grew up in California. I'm a medical student and Editor-in-Chief. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I never got a high school diploma, but still was able to go to college and now medical school. I'm a medical student, as well as an editor at a start up educational company. I enjoy reading. I LOVE sports. I'm married, and the father of two. My favorite hobby is to play with my kids, which generally consists of me on all four rolling around with and chasing them. I have been blessed with many wonderful opportunities for success in this world, but I would give it all up in a heartbeat for my faith and family. I love my family more than words can ever describe, and that love increases each day. While no one is perfect, my wife and two children are perfect for me!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But as I got older I had to decide for myself if it was something I believed. For as long as I can remember, I was taught that there is a God, that He is my Father, and that I can pray to Him. This has been a source of immense strength to me. I feel like the doctrines taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are an amazing source of strength and stability. Life is hard at times, and we live in a time of questioning and changing morals. Even laws of science and nature are constantly changing as we learn more about the world around us. In such a time, it is imperative to have a foundation that doesn't change. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is such a foundation. No matter how beliefs and practices in the world change, the Gospel is constant. It is a foundation I can build my life on, knowing that no matter what, that foundation will not move.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday, which serves to recharge my "spiritual battery" for another week. I study the scriptures and pray. I make it a priority to spend time with and strengthening my family. I teach class in my Elder's Quorum, which is a group of men. Each Sunday we get together as a quorum and discuss ways that we can more fully live the Gospel and fulfill our sacred responsibilities as husbands, fathers, brothers, and children of God. When friends of mine have questions about life, I share with them my beliefs and how those beliefs have been a source of strength in my life.
