Hi I'm Taylor Mikesell

I was raised in the church through a loving family and they are my life. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a person who absolutely loves the arts. I love expanding my talents and trying new things. Being with other people and learning new things from them is one of my favorite hobbies. I am the fourth child out of eight children in my family. Luckily I was raised in a household who believe in the importance of family. We are all fairly close to each other and music is a big part of our lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! I was able to learn and grow in this gospel and it has become something that has been engrained in my life. I did not truly start gaining a testimony until I actually became interested in this gospel. Once I opened my heart and practiced this faith with sincerity the holy spirit was able to enter my heart and I have experienced many great things. I cannot deny that my savior lives and that my Heavenly Father loves his children, including me. I am so grateful for my savior. I pray that I will be able to be used as a tool in the lord's hands to do his work. I would love to help anyone who has any questions about this gospel. I aspire to love everyone as Jesus does, no matter who they are or what they have experienced. For the worth of souls is great in the sight of God. I am a Mormon because this faith has only brought me happiness. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and I want to follow and abide by its precepts. I have become a better person because I have chosen to be a Mormon. I am also a Mormon because I want to follow Christ. I know that this faith is HIS work. He is the one guiding this religion. He is my savior and redeemer and I am grateful for his presence in my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to leave on a mission! I have been assigned to the Charleston, West Virginia mission! I am so excited to serve! Until then I am attending a Young Single Adult Ward. My calling is to be a primary teacher for the Bishop's children! He has boys that are so smart and I adore them! They are already preparing to serve a mission and I am so happy to help teach them!
