Hi I'm Tyrone

I grew up in South Dakota. I am a father and husband. I love football. I am a counselor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a high school counselor. I have 5 children. 4 girls and 1 boy. I have been married for 30 years. I like to read, hike, boat with my family, garden, fish, work on the computer, and watch football. I am a veteran of the US Army. I served in West Germany in the early 70s. I am a grandfather.

Why I am a Mormon

When my brother started to talk to me about Joseph Smith and his first vision I immediately knew it was the truth. I had this very comfortable feeling about it. I did not join the Church right away as I had to make sure it was the right thing to do. I was baptized in August of 1972. But I was not patience with myself and soon became inactive. I spent about 8 years living different lifestyles. Then in 1980 after my wife and I were married she took the discussions and gained a testimony of Jesus Christ and the true Church. We were sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple in March 1982. We have been active ever since. I prefer this kind of life style. It is easy to live and makes life here on earth so much more meaningful. I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and that He is the Savior of the world. I work hard every day to make Him the center of my life. I love my Heavenly Father and all that He has given me. I am grateful for the blessings He has given me in this life. I have a wonderful wife who I know loves me. I have 5 wonderful children who are seeking to do what is right. I have many friends who believe the same way I do and who accept me for who I am. Where ever you go in this world you can find a Mormon Church and it will be like instance family.

How I live my faith

I like to serve others. I accept people for who they are. Just as the Savior did. He is my example and I try to emulate Him as much as I can.
