Hi I'm Taylor Gulbransen

I live in Bountiful, Utah. I am an Eagle Scout. Going on a mission to Texas, Fort Worth. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports, football, basketball, baseball. My family is very important to me. I love working hard and doing hard stuff. I will serve a mission very soon. I just love this church and being a mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

This church I have come to know is true. I love that the Book of Mormon and how much it blesses my life. I have always been apart of the church, but when you are older and can understand more it is important to find out for yourself if it is true. I know for a fact it is true. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and all it has done for me.

How I live my faith

I go to Seminary. I do lots of service for our ward members. I go home teaching.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Taylor Gulbransen
Missionaries generally go on a mission around the ages or 18 to 19 years old. Going on a mission is not required, but highly encouraged. The church does not pay missionaries for their service. Missionaries from all around the world will go wherever the church calls them. In Matthew 28:19 the Savior teaches us, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations". Missionaries go all over the world to share the gospel. They go on missions to invite others to come unto Christ. Missionaries are official representatives of the Church. Show more Show less
