Hi I'm Taelor Hatch

I grew up in California with my family. I have seven people in my family including me. I attend school at BYUI. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sophomore at BYU Idaho, However, I chose to serve a mission for the LDS church and I received my call to serve in Houston Texas. I will be serving a mission for 18 months starting August 26th, 2015. All of my life, I have been preparing to serve a mission. I love to serve and I love to smile. I love making others feel welcomed and happy. I love to dance, run, hike, and swim. I love to be outdoors and I love to be with my family. I have 2 older sisters and 2 younger brothers and loving parents. I have lived with my family in Rocklin, California for most of my life and I hope to be a Dental Hygienist and attend school in Utah after my mission and after I complete more school at BYUI.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know this church is true. I came to know the truth of this church through personal prayer. With faith and having real intent, I prayed that I would come to know the truth of the LDS church. Through prayer, or a communication with God, I have come to know His truthful gospel and His love for each and every one of us. I love how everyone in the LDS church is always so happy. And I know that they are happy because they can feel Gods love. I continue to stand firm in my faith in God because I love Him and I love Jesus Christ and I love the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is true and I know this Book is the word of God. I know that as I read the Book of Mormon and the Bible, I am able to fully understand Gods plan for us and how we can all return to Him one day. We can also understand all of Christ's teachings. I know that through Jesus Christ and His atonement, we can all repent and return to our Heavenly Father. As I apply the atonement in my life, I am able to be truly happy and I am able to feel uplifted and loved. Christ atonement means so much to me. I love this church and I know the Church of Jesus Christ is true. I love being Mormon.

How I live my faith

At BYU Idaho, I taught the young single adults about Jesus Christ and his teachings in the Bible. I also have a visiting teaching calling where I visit and talk with 2 friends of mine about once a month or even a few times a month. I love to teach about Jesus Christ and I love to help my friends and the young single adults at BYUI come to know Jesus Christ and His love for them.
