Hi I'm Taylor

I'm a ghostwriter, a mom, and a bellydancer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the proud mommy of the cutest little baby boy in the world! And the best decision I ever made was marrying my best friend, who has given me the courage to face the world! I'm sort of a closet otaku and get really excited over a new manga set or an anime series I like, but I have phases. I love to read books, particularly young adult and fantasy, and my favorite pass time is writing my own stuff, not the stuff I'm hired to do. As a ghostwriter, my religion takes front seat, and I'm more than happy to turn down anything that goes against my standards. But, surprisingly, this doesn't shorten my client list at all. I have more than ever! And I even have clients that are pleased that I have the standards that I do. It has taught me that you can find others like you anywhere. I'm part of a local bellydance troupe. We do American Tribal style, so we have to where tons of layers and huge skirts. I'm not the only Mormon in my troupe, but I've seen quite a colorful arrangement of people through my dancing and meeting other tribes in the area. I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, I wasn't in the most stable of circumstances. My mother married multiple times, I got a shuffling of siblings, and we moved, on average, about every year. My mother had taught me to pray at a young age, so I naturally reached up to my Heavenly Father when I was lonely because we had just moved and I didn't have any friends, or I was having a hard time adjusting to my new family. He walked me through some of the hardest times of my life. Since I so often sought the help and company of my Father, I knew his presence, and I could simply feel Him when I went to church. I could feel Him in the Temple, I could feel Him when I talked about Jesus, went to Seminary, read my scriptures. When I finally did get down and ask, simply because I was having such a hard time and was afraid that all of it was for nothing, I simply felt my Father again pointing out what I already knew. Why would I ever want to leave such love? I was terrified to get married, absolutely terrified. But, it was the strangest thing ever. Before I married my husband it was like I was being tranquilized with the spirit--as awful as that sounds. I wasn't afraid. I was so peaceful. The night before my wedding was the best night of sleep I got. Now I have a marriage better than I ever thought I could have, even with our fair share of struggles. But...my Father told me that marriage was for our happiness, and that I'd be all right. And guess what? I am. And I never thought I could be so happy. I could have never made it through without Him.

How I live my faith

I'm a ward choir director. I still refer to it as 'writing cursive in the air with my arm most of the time,' but I can't wait to bring out the hidden talent in my ward.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Because they make us happy! God's an awfully smart man. He commanded Adam and Eve to multiply and replenish the earth (aka, have a family), because He loves us and wants us to be happy. Often times, it's frightening to take that step into marriage, because an imperfect person has so much say in whether we live in blissful happiness or horrible sorrow. There's plenty of horror stories out there of failed marriages or unhappy, overworked parents. But families who live by Christ's principles are simply the happiest places on earth, and we Mormons aim to be happy! Show more Show less
