Hi I'm Trevor

Hello! My name is Trevor. I have lived in Northern Utah my entire life. I have been LDS my entire life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Utah my entire life. I graduated High school in 2015. I am currently serving an LDS mission in Colombia. I am excited to serve and teach the people of Colombia. When I return, I plan to study Computer Engineering and begin a career. I enjoy computers, cars, music, and being outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I follow the Gospel for a very simple reason. I love it. I love the feeling of the spirit touching my life and guiding me in the paths in which I should take. I love reading the scriptures and finding verses that will help me in times of question and trouble. It is a great feeling to know that anytime a person needs to talk, prayer is a great way to be able to talk to our father in heaven who loves us very much! If something feels like it is missing in your life, the gospel can help you find the answer!

How I live my faith

I have been LDS my entire life. I have held several callings throughout my life. I have served in several Young Mens presidencies rotating from president to counselor to secretary. I have been the music coordinator for priesthood meeting and I currently serve as a primary teacher. Serving in these positions has been very enjoyable. They have taught me how to teach the gospel to others and to share my talents to move the gospel forward to others on this earth.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Trevor
Jesus Christ taught that baptism is essential to the salvation of all who have lived on earth (see John3:5). Many people, however, have died without being baptized. Others were baptized without proper authority. Because God is merciful, He has prepared a way for all people to receive the blessings of baptism. By performing proxy baptisms in behalf of those who have died, Church members offer these blessings to deceased ancestors. These individuals in the next life can then choose to accept or decline what has been done in their behalf. Show more Show less
