Hi I'm Taylor

I was born and raised in Utah. I'm a gamer, oldest brother to ten, serving in the Texas Houston East Mission and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am the oldest child among 10, all of which don't share both of my same parents. Back home I was a gamer with a love of music and art. I have desires to create, be it stories, films, food, or whatever. As always, I am a disciple of Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the hope, joy, and light that this gospel has to offer. Through the Atonement, mistakes can be corrected, families can be together forever through an eternity, and happiness can be a ruling force throughout life. As I reflect on Christ and His teachings, I can see His hand in my life which has guided me to where I am now and has helped my weaknesses to become strengths. Strength in seeing potential in others, understanding how another might feel when the unexpected comes to them, and seeing myself beyond physical ability. I love my God and His gospel and I know of His love for each of us.

How I live my faith

As a missionary in the Texas Houston East Mission, I get to express my feelings and love for my Savior and how He has blessed me and help me to understand who I am with others so that they may have the opportunity to do the same thing.

What are Mormon temples used for?

Temples are sacred places of worship where worthy members of the church may enter and receive sacred ordinances. We come closer to God in these homes which are dedicated to Him and in which He may dwell. In these beautiful buildings, we also focus on the work of salvation for the family. We provide baptisms for those unable to receive it here on this earth and seal families together for eternity. Show more Show less
