Hi I'm Taylor

I'm a pre-med student studying electrical engineering. I CrossFit, paddle board, and ski in my free time. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a pre-med student studying electrical engineering. I hope one day to be a neurosurgeon. I grew up in the rocky mountains of Utah, where I developed a love for the snow and water. In the summertime, you can find me paddle boarding, mountain biking, and hanging with my family and friends. In the winter, I hit the slopes with my skis and the driveway with my shovel. I have a giant maine coon cat named Lois.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in Primary, I would sing songs about Jesus Christ. I learned from an early age that He loved me very much. He was my Savior and Redeemer. In essence, He is my example. I also learned that God gave us prophets, both ancient and modern, to guide us in our desires to follow the Savior. When I was 8 years old, I was baptized by my father. At that time, I made covenants with my Father in Heaven and although I was young, I had a basic understanding of them. Over the years, my testimony has grown and now, I want to share that testimony with others. When I was baptized, I received a set of scriptures. Over the years, I have read the scriptures by myself and with my family. One year, my mother challenged us to read the Book of Mormon in 3 months; we did and got two kittens afterward! The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and bears witness of Him. I know that God lives and that He loves us; He wants us to find eternal happiness and share that happiness with others.

How I live my faith

I enjoy attending religious classes at our local Institute of Religion and the local ward for young, single adults. I have volunteered with the missionaries shoveling driveways for many members, including several elderly members. Service is an integral part of my religious beliefs. We read that when we are in the service of our fellow man, we are in the service of God. When I completed my Eagle Project. I collected personal narratives of Purple Heart recipients from World War II, Korean War, Vietnam and the wars in Iraq. Through this experience, I was able to meet some amazing people and wonderful families. I concentrated this project on those recipients from my community and gained a stronger appreciation for the sacrifices they made so that I can live freely.
