Hi I'm Trevor Merritt

I grew up in the small town Eureka, Nevada. I love my family, the outdoors, sports, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Eureka, Nevada, a small town in central Nevada. My family consists of me, my parents, my three older sisters, and my one younger sister. Yes, I am the only boy and have 4 sisters... I enjoy basically any activity dealing with the outdoors. This would include; camping, fishing, hunting, riding motorcycles, playing sports, etc. Throughout High school I participated in many extracurricular activities including Boy Scouts of America, Football, Basketball, Track, FFA, Academic Olympics, and Honor Society. I am currently serving a mission in the Michigan Lansing Mission and absolutely loving it!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised up into the church, and I have found my own testimony through the various activities I have been part of (through the church) growing up. I have a testimony of this church that it is true. I would not be able to comprehend something so big and so many people part of it, without it being true. I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet and received revelation to restore the gospel so that we could have it in this day. I believe that with the gospel we will be able to return to our Father in Heaven with our family members and have eternal life as long as we keep the commandments given by him. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving and keeping the commandments of the Lord every day. This has been easier for me currently because I am serving a mission in the Michigan Lansing Mission. We (my companion and I) try to talk to everyone and help everyone build their faith and relationship with God and Jesus Christ. We continually try to love and serve people at any possible moment and for any little thing. "When Ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God" -Mosiah 2:17
