Hi I'm Travis

I grew up in Provo Utah. I love track and field. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah where my father works as a Professor at Brigham Young University. I have two older sisters and one younger sister. From a young age I competed in many sports such as soccer and basketball. I played three years of basketball in high school. I can play the piano and percussion. In high school I competed on the track and field team where I mainly focused on the decathlon. I also competed on the varsity cross-country team. I love to backpack especially in the Uintah Mountain Range. Following my mission to Chile I plan to attend Brigham Young University where I hope to become a walk-on for the track and field team.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger I didn't have much choice as to whether I should be a Mormon or not. You see, I was born and raised in this church. My entire family is Mormon. My Dad's side of the family has been in the church for nearly six generations and my Mom's side has been in the church for half that. As you can see my life has been surrounded by the church's influence. Though I have had so much church influence in my life, I have until recently never believed that I was truly converted to the gospel. My testimony has slowly and even frustratingly grown. At times I would ask myself, "Do I truly believe in this gospel." With a lot of patience and faith I can now truly say that I know that this church is true. I know that this gospel can make us happier.

How I live my faith

From a young age I have been taught to always do my duty. I have chosen to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have been called to serve in Chile--the Concepcion South Mission. While I was growing up I served in multiple leadership positions at church and most recently been asked to teach the four and five year olds every other Sunday.
