Hi I'm Talon

I'm a missionary, a cowboy at heart, future soldier, brother to all, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am the oldest son of 6 kids, but have several friends who I love to death and call my brothers. I love being outside and doing anything outdoors, including hunting, backpacking, and camping. I've lived almost my whole life in Idaho. At heart I have always been a cowboy and love working on ranches and farms. I'm happiest when I'm in the mountains with family or close friends. One of my favorite things to do is shooting. I grew up with guns and working with them. Right now I am serving a mission in the Texas San Antonio Mission or the TSAM. I love being a missionary and helping others come unto Christ. After my mission, I will be joining the military and going to school.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the gospel of Jesus Christ restored in these latter days. I was raised LDS but haven't always been an active member. My senior year I was drifting away from everything I knew to be true. I wasn't going to church, seminary, and wasn't reading my scriptures. At one point, I told my family I was done with the church. After that, life was miserable. Everything I had going for me fell through. Thankfully, my parents and grandparents helped pull me out of the hole I dug. I was able to remember why I was a member and the joy it brought me. I was to change my life for the better. Because of that, I decided to serve a mission so I could help others come to know the joy and happiness the gospel can bring.

How I live my faith

I am serving a 2 year mission for the church. I'm not paid for my efforts. In fact, I have to pay my own way to out here. Some people think this is crazy but I love it. This gospel has changed my life. I have seen it change the lives of others and help them in ways that never seemed possible before.
