Hi I'm Taylor Welch

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I love to sing, dance, and meet new people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently at college in Utah and I am studying nursing. When I am finished with nursing school I want to work at Primary Children's Hospital in Pediatric Oncology. I am outgoing and love to meet new people. I love opportunities to connect with people around the world. Being at college has helped me do that and it has been an amazing experience. I also love spending time with my family and playing different games/sports with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the knowledge of the gospel brings light into my life. In a dark and confusing world that only offers temporary happiness, the gospel of Jesus Christ provides me with direction, peace, and everlasting happiness. I know that no matter how challenging life may become, I can still be happy because of Jesus Christ. It is so comforting to know that I have a Savior who knows and loves me perfectly. There is nothing in my life that He does not perfectly understand. When I failed my chemistry test, got my heartbroken, found out that my six year old cousin had terminal brain cancer, He knows it all. I know that when we turn to Jesus Christ our difficult lives will be filled with more peace and joy than we have ever experienced. I know that because of the Savior all that is unfair in this life will be made whole. I know the answers to the hard questions of life so many people wonder: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Those answers are found here in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that knowledge blesses me everyday. I am a Mormon because my relationship and knowledge of the Savior makes me happy. Everyone on this earth wants to be happy and everlasting happiness is found here.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in my everyday life. I know that Jesus Christ came to earth and that He lived a perfect life. I know that He suffered for each of us personally and that He lives today. Because of that knowledge I live a Christ centered life. Each day I look for opportunities to serve and bless the lives of those around me, just as the Savior did in His earthly ministry. Because of the knowledge that I have I can be happy no matter how hard life gets. Each day brings new challenges, but when I focus on the Savior and pray to Heavenly Father I am blessed with peace and happiness, no matter how challenging the days ahead may be. The gospel encompasses everything I do. Jesus Christ is my source of happiness and because of Him I can truly say at the end of each day that I had a good day and that I am happy.
