Hi I'm Trevor Leavitt

I live in Kaysville, Utah. I own the UT State Record in the 400m in track. I'm serving a mission in Atlanta Georgia, I am a Mormon

About Me

I am like most typical high school guys. I love sports and hanging out with friends. My favorite sport is track and field and I was lucky enough to have success as a runner my senior year and now own the state record in the 400m along with 2 school records with the 400m and the 200m. I love being with my friends. We go and hangout all the time and do all sorts of fun stuff like drive-in movies or mini golf. My family is also a very strong force for good in my life. I have 3 siblings and my mom and dad. My dad is a Vet and has shared his love of animals with his kids. My mom was an awesome Track athlete at BYU and has also shared her love for sports with her children. We are avid BYU fans and we hardly ever miss a home football game while they are in-season. I do well in school but being a senior before I graduated can be very boring but like most seniors I just tried to gut it out and finish the school year on a good note. I will be serving a mission in Atlanta Georgia and when I return I will be blessed enough to be able to run track at the same college my mom ran at in BYU.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because as I've served a mission for my church I have come to a very clear understanding that God loves each and every one of his sons and daughters here on this earth. WE are the sons and daughters of a loving Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because I have found as I follow the commandments and obey our modern day prophet, we will be able to continue to feel God's love, and subsequently we will love him more as well. This Church is a church of Hope, a church of love, and ultimately a family that will help us all one day return back to Heaven. I am a Mormon because the Atonement of Jesus Christ has wrought a mighty change in my heart and I know that it will change anyone else who is looking to have a stronger faith in God and in themselves. I thank God for the person I'm BECOMING, because I know that we will always be able to continue to learn and grow thanks to Jesus Christ and his Infinite sacrifice for us. Lastly, I'm a Mormon because the feelings of love that I receive from our Father in Heaven, are the most real and actual things I hold dear in my life, and I feel it most when I'm doing the Lord's will within HIS church, once again restored to the Earth in these last days.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by trusting in my Heavenly Father. As mentioned before I did Track and Field and enjoyed a lot of success during my senior year. I owned the state record but my last goal to finally cap off a great year was to win my first state championship. I was very excited because I had a very good chance to win and enjoy the success I had worked so hard to obtain. The meet consisted of two days. A trials day where you qualify in your event and a finals day where if you qualified you got to compete to see who would be crowned state champion. My first race on trial day started off very well but right before I crossed the finish line I felt an instant pain in my hamstring and realized in that instant that I had pulled it and my track career in high school was over. I would never be able to win that state championship that I had tried so hard to get. At that time I decided I had 2 choices. I could either be angry and mad at my Father in Heaven for allowing such a devastating injury to get me at this moment where all I wanted to do was compete, or I could accept what happened and know that my Father in Heaven loved me and what happened had happened for a reason. I said a quick prayer telling my Heavenly Father that I was going to accept my injury and continue to cheer on my teammates as they competed. I felt an instant warmth wash over me and I knew he was proud of my decision to trust him. I will never forget that experience and living my faith by trusting in what God decides is necessary to be happy in this life. It has strengthened my faith a ton.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Trevor Leavitt
Absolutely they can live together forever! That's the beauty of God's plan for us! He wants us all to be able to comeback and live with Him forever with our families. Could you imagine living in Heaven without your family? Doesn't quite sound like Heaven does it? Hence why our loving Heavenly Father has provided a way for all of us to go back and live with Him again, and he wants us to bring our family members with us. It's a gospel truth that I hold dear to my heart. Death will no longer be the ending of our relationships with loved ones, so long as we are obedient and do as the lord has asked in this life, he will reward us infinitely in the next!
