Hi I'm James Tyler

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I'm a proud father and husband. I love surfing and spending time with my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church because living in accordance with the gospel teachings is what makes me happy, and I know it will lead to eternal happiness. I cherish the knowledge that we have a living prophet, and that we can be together with our families forever! I know that this church is the same church that Christ organized when he was on the earth.

How I live my faith

I am currently a leader in the youth organization of the church. I work with the teenage boys on special achievements, such as the Eagle Scout award and the Duty to God award. I strive to help the young men understand the potential they have to become good citizens, good fathers and husbands, successful leaders, and faithful followers of Jesus Christ and His gospel.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

James Tyler
It most certainly is the word of God, as far as it is translated correctly. In Sunday School, I am currently learning about the noble women of the Old Testament - Ruth, Naomi, and others. I also love reading about Christ's teachings while he was in Jerusalem. Studying His ministry as related in the New Testament, and learning about the prophecies of His coming in the Old Testament is critical in order to strengthen one's testimony of His gospel.
