Hi I'm Travis

I'm a husband and father. I like acting, movies, and classical music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a wonderful wife and two beautiful girls. I just graduated from the University of Utah and am looking forward to the changes that are ahead of me. I love watching movies and finding messages of hope and inspiration that can be drawn from them. In particular, I like superhero movies. Growing up without a father, superheroes served as examples for me of strength and determination to do what is right, even in difficult situations. I enjoy listening to classical music and like to read books about history.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents that were members of the Church, but I understood early in life that I should not be a Mormon simply because my mother and father were. I studied the scriptures and prayed and fasted as I grew up to become familiar with the teachings of Jesus Christ and his prophets. I gained my own testimony through the witness of the Holy Ghost that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's restored church, the same church He established during his mortal ministry on earth.

How I live my faith

I serve as a ward missionary (a part-time, volunteer missionary that helps with sharing the Gospel within the geographical boundaries of my congregation), and as part of that calling I teach an adult Sunday School class every other week, and I really enjoy finding ways to engage the class members and spark conversations that allow them to share their testimonies.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

The current prophet and President of the Church is Thomas S. Monson. I had the privilege to shake his hand when I was a young Boy Scout before he was President of the Church (President Monson is an avid supporter of scouting and was at a Boiy Scouts of America rendezvous that I attended). He is a kind, inspired person that receives God's will for the Church. Show more Show less
