Hi I'm Trevor

I was born and raised in Utah County. I'm a distance runner. A 2-Mile school record holder. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in the Utah Valley my entire life and competed in track and cross country throughout high school. I was blessed with success in running and broke the cross country school record my senior year (which has since then been broken) and broke the 2 Mile school record in track (which I still hold). After graduating I attended college studying exercise science. Aside from running, I also enjoy rock climbing, snowboarding, playing basketball, and playing guitar and piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe that by following the principles and teachings of this church it will bring me more happiness than anything else could. I know that when I make decisions that are in harmony with what I've been taught while being a member of this church, that those decisions are the ones that will bring the most happiness in the long term. There may be some temporal pleasures that I may not get to experience, but if you consider the long-term effects of decisions, I believe that the guidance we are given is the most beneficial. Because of this, I know that the prophet we have is a true prophet that has been called of God, and that he is led by God and Jesus Christ, because they know what's best for us. They want us to be happy no matter what. Although there are trials that all of us will have to face as part of this life that we may not understand, I know that if we trust God then everything will work out in the end. Being a Mormon I have been able to experience that.

How I live my faith

After graduating and before going to college I served as a teacher for the 10 and 11 year old kids in my ward. While at college I was part of a Young Single Adult ward and served as an assistant clerk, keeping the church records of those in my ward up to date. After that semester I was called to be a missionary for the church to serve in Washington state. Teaching the children was one of the most humbling experiences, because you introduce many principles of the gospel to these kids for the first time, and while doing that you begin to notice changes you may need to make in your life to follow those teachings as well.
