Hi I'm Taylor Shiozawa

I grew up in Nevada. I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and am preparing to serve a mission.

About Me

I am currently preparing to serve a mission, after which I will attend college. I enjoy outdoor activities, especially swimming, fishing, and sports. I play the piano and the saxophone, and I enjoy listening to music. My favorite sport to play is football, and I played as an offensive guard all four years of high school.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As I have tested and tried the principles I learned from church meetings, my parents and leaders, and the scriptures, I have found them all to be good and true. I have felt the holy spirit countless times in my life, a warm feeling that leads me to do good and teaches me what decisions I should make in my life. All my prayers offered with faith and real intent have been answered, and even if the answer to my prayers is not one I can appreciate at the time I know that my Heavenly Father knows what is best for me. I bear my testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading my scriptures and praying to my Heavenly Father daily, and attending church regularly. I am on my stake seminary council and my stake youth council, and so I plan and participate in most stake youth activities. The church seminary program is an educational program designed to teach the youth about the doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As a member of the stake seminary council, I assist in planning seminary activities, and sometimes teach seminary lessons. As a member of the stake youth council, I plan activities that involve the youth, such as dances and firesides, which are meetings in which a speaker will come deliver an uplifting message.
