Hi I'm Taylor

I grew up in Idaho, and my school mascot was a potato. I am a ballroom dancer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently in college and am listed as a pre-nursing major. At the school I'm attending, the program is very competitive, so I am trying hard to get good grades so I can get in. I am also trying to balance dancing on the side, because I am on a ballroom dance team at the school. This is what I am truly passionate about, I love the way the music can communicate feelings words can't, as well as how it can help our bodies complete movements that tell a story. I am also doing what normal college girls are trying to do: go on a couple dates every once in a while, avoid cleaning too many dishes, and figuring out how to live with five other girls. Although I have 3 little sisters, living with 5 other females is definitely new territory. Overall, loving the new experiences that come with figuring out life!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints truly does bring me closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ, and helps me able to better understand how I can become the person I want to be, as well as who God wants me to be. I wouldn't be able to understand how to reach my full potential without the understanding and happiness that this gospel brings to my life. One thing that I can always count on to be consistent is the love that my Heavenly Father has for me.

How I live my faith

In our church, we have college "wards" or congregations for unmarried individuals like me, and they are called "singles wards". My current calling or position in our church is Family Home Evening, FHE, co-leader, or mom. As part of the LDS faith, our leaders encourage us to do an activity with our immediate families on Monday of every week. Since a majority of us are away from home and don't have families nearby, our ward leaders put together different dorms to form families, and then from those families call one young woman and one young man to serve as co-leaders. Together they plan activities for their "family". I love my calling, it gives me an opportunity to get to know other people also attending the same university as me, as well as gives me an opportunity to look outside myself and serve others.
