Hi I'm Tate

I grew up in Kaysville, Utah. I love to play music and sports. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I love to play the piano! I played the piano in my high school jazz band for three years. I've always loved to perform, share, and use my talents to bless the lives of others. I am the fifth child of seven children. I have a very close relationship with my family and I love to spend time with them. My parents have been married for 30 years. My dad is an LDS seminary teacher at a junior high school in Kaysville. I love having a seminary teacher for a dad because I can always count on him to provide great insights on religious matters. I have been called to serve in the Peru Cusco mission, and I report on July 29th, 2014. I am so excited to serve the Lord as his missionary!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's true church that has been restored to this world. I believe that every religion in this world contains truth, but that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provides all missing keys. This church fills me with happiness. I have never seen an angel or had a vision, but I have felt the gentle confirmations of the holy spirit that have strengthened my beliefs. Too often these days people expect to have inspiring visions, manifestations, or immediate answers to prayers to remove all doubt from their mind as to whether or not this church is true. Sometimes that may happen, but if that is all that we search for then we will miss the small and simple things that will inevitably make our beliefs as strong and immovable as a mountain. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's true church because I have had small and simple experiences that have increased my testimony.

How I live my faith

I have a calling in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be a home teacher. This means that once a month me and another man in my ward visit specific families that have been assigned to us. When we visit we check up on how they are doing, ask if there is anything that we can do for them, and teach them a lesson. My companion and I also make sure to check up on them at other times during the month besides when we teach them to make sure that they are doing well and to provide any assistance that we can when they need it.
