Hi I'm Travis Joseph Holt

I grew up in Antioch, California, I Play and Coach Volleyball, I Love the Outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently living here in Florida as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Before I came here to serve I was living with my family in California where I was working and preparing to come out here as a missionary. I also play as much Volleyball as I possibly can, every chance I get to play, I do! I also love the outdoors, so naturally I love rock climbing in the hills and mountains of Cali. It's something I don't get to do very often but I still love it. The most important thing to me though, is God, my family, and friends, because without them I would not be who I am or where I am now.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon and was baptized when I was 8. I always knew that the Church taught good principles and values. But for me I didn't realize just how true it was until coming on my mission and truly testing my faith in God. Even before my mission I fell away from the Church for a brief time because I wasn't sure if this Church was something that I needed. I thought that I could do it on my own, and that God was not there to help me or guide me. But eventually I came back to the Church and I decided to have a little faith, I decided to come on a mission and it was here that I realized that everyone needs to hear about this gospel, everyone needs to hear of the message that we have. Because everyone is looking for a purpose in life, just as I was. Everyone needs to know that our Father in Heaven is there and that he loves each and every one of us and He wants us to make good and righteous decisions. He wants us to return to live with Him. I know now that through the Atonement and sacrifice of Jesus Christ that that is the only way we can return to live with him. I am a Mormon and I know who I am, where I came from and where I am going... do you?

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day by striving to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Every day I wake up and pray to my Heavenly Father and I go about my day trying to uplift and serve people any way I can. I try as hard as I can to be as Christlike as I possibly can. I have dedicated two years of my life to serving my Heavenly Father and others, because I know that is what He has asked me to do, I know that it is what he wanted of me. I live my faith by trying my hardest to make other peoples lives better. To make them feel the same joy and happiness that I feel, because I know that my Heavenly Father loves everyone more than any of us will ever realize.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Travis Joseph Holt
We believe Thomas S. Monson to be the prophet of Gods Church on the Earth. We believe he was called of God and given all the keys, rights, and privileges to govern His Church here on the earth. We believe he receives revelation for the world, and keeps us on the straight and narrow and warns us and calls us to repentance when we are straying from the path. Much like Moses, Elijah, and Isaiah of old. Show more Show less
