Hi I'm Patrick Taylor

I am a retired CEO of a small Consulting firm, and a convert to the church.

About Me

After joining the Church in 1961, I served a mission in Argentina. I graduated from BYU in 1969. I spent most of my career in the Aerospace Industry and prior to retirement I formed a small consulting firm providing Project Management Services to Industry and Government. I married my wife of 44 years in Los Angeles California where we met. We have 5 children and 18 grandchildren. We have lived all over the country during our life. California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Arizona and for 20 years in Northern Virginia. We presently live in Gilbert Arizona.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I studied the life of Joseph Smith and his story. More than knowledge, however, is the personal revelation to me in 1961 that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the literal restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ established in these modern times. Not only has it provided me and my family that conviction and happiness, but I have witnessed that same miracle in the lives of people all over the world. When I joined the church there were only 1.5 Million members throughout the world. Today there are over 15 Million. It is the fastest growing Church in the world for a very good reason. Its true!

How I live my faith

After discovering the church when I was 21 I have been devoted to the principles and teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I has provide me with a deep sense of purpose and guidance that I never realized could be possible, and it has provided me and my family with tremendous joy and happiness.

What do Mormons believe about family?
